What Lookup String can I use to get the sequence file name and the step name form a DLL?

My sequence makes a DLL call to a function written in CVI. In that CVI function I need to know the name of the sequence call and the name of the particular step that made the call. I know that by using the function TS_PropertyGetValString I can get different parameters. What is the Lookup String that I should use to get the name of the sequence (actualy, the file name) and the name of the step that made the call?

With respect,

Hi yarriv,

To get the sequence file use RunState.SequenceFilePath. This returns the full pathname.

To get the step name use
TS_PropertyGetProperty(propObj, &errorInfo , TS_PropertyName, CAVT_CSTRING, &Name);

If the propObj is for a Step Object then the step name is returned. If for a Sequence Object then the sequence Name is returned.

Hope this helps
