Non-sequential enum causes error

Non-sequential enum causes error

When calling a .NET object that has a property that sets an enum value, I am getting a runtime error in the .NET code if the enum is defined such that each value is not a sequential number (as in a bit mask). If the values are sequential there is no problem. In both cases, the sequence editor shows a drop down with the names of the enum values but puts the name in quotes.


Does TestStand handle enums with non-sequential values properly?

Re: Non-sequential enum causes error

What version of TestStand are you using? Are you passing the values as a string or as a number? How are you constructing the combined value (i.e. what does your expression for the parameter look like)?

Re: Non-sequential enum causes error

It works for me if I specify the values separated by commas or specify the value numerically. For example:



    public enum mybitfield
        myval1 = 0x1,
        myval2 = 0x2

For the above bitfield, to specify both values for a parameter you can either specify:


"myval1, myval2"

0x1 | 0x2



Any of the above worked for me in both TestStand 4.2.1 and TestStand 2010.


Hope this helps,
