TS-OPUI shows Passed but there are fail-tests - why?


i am using TS4.2.1 and LV8.6 in WIndowsXP. There i use the default TS-OPUI.

In the TS-OPUI there is in the left side a Execution-list with a final-result Passed/Failed and a color green/red.

When i click on a execution then it shows me on the right side the report of this execution.


Now i have the problem that TS shows a final result of PASSED but there are some fail-tests in the sequence that are shown in the report.


How is this possible?

Check if on all desierd steps the flag "Step Failure Cause Sequence Failure" is set to true.

None of my steps has this flag disabled 😞


I saw in the reports that all "wrong" results also have an "ERROR"-step inside.

Is it possible that the error overwrites the normal result (which should be fail) with passed?

Now i created a dummy sequence that contains dummy-labview-vis (one is pass, one fail, one error)

When running the sequence then the report says "Fail" but the Icon in Teststand shows a green Passed-Icon.

Does someone know which variable sets this final-icon in the Execution-list?

(In the model the Main-sequence-callback finished correct with "error".)

I am getting nearer...

When the error occurs then Teststand shows me the RunTimeError-occured-popup (screenshot).


When selecting here: runCleanup -> then the result goes on Pass

When selecting here: ignore -> then the result goes on Fail.


I am sure that it is somewhere in the model.

Because when using the default-model (and not my custom model as above) then the result is going correct on Error when selecting runCleanup.

The question is nonly: Where is this set?
