I am trying to get the name of the previous step in TestStand. I keep running into the suggestion to use RunState.PreviousStep.Name() which seems so logical. However, in version 2013 I will be darned if I can even find this property in the expression browser. It doesn't show during development mode or in run time. I can find the previous step index, but not the name. What the heck am I missing? Every time I have to try and deal with a TS property I lose hair and there isn't much left.

Name is a property, so you don't need the brackets.
I am not sure if TS 2013 already allows direct access to the name of the step like that. If not, you need PreviousStep.AsPropertyObject().Name.

You can use as well NameOf(RunState.PreviousStep)

Thanks. I'll give it a try.

Use Run State Property Methods where you can access all the properties related to the sequence currently executing.

RunState.Sequence.Main["//Step name from Main Step Group"].Name
You can use above property to get name of any step
