I would like to create a new types pallet for a new project say project #2. I currently have an existing project say project #1 that has its own custom step types. I try to clear out the types pallet for project #2 so that I can start fresh but it will also clear out the type pallet for project #1. How can I create a seperate MyTypes.ini for project #2? Is it possible?
There are some issues with creating multiple MyTypes.ini files since two concurring files with create a Type Conflict. Is there something unique in your application that requires multiple ini files since you can create multiple custom steps and actions in a single ini file?
I’ve also attached a white paper on an overview of Types in TestStand that explains Type Conflicts with INI files.
Thanks for the response. Yes, we could add a new layer to the types menu for this new project. I was hoping I could tell TestStand where to find mytypes.ini. That way I could have a project specific mytypes. I'm not sure if it is possible to define where TestStand finds its global configuration files.
Maybe there is another solution on handling type pallete files: Do NOT use them.
Just read discussion on this thread
