find names of nested calling steps spread throughout multiple sequence file during runtime?



I am using multiple sequence files which are interdependent. I want to know the whole calling tree including the step names to have a hold on the complex  test structure as I debug and send those names to OutputMessages.

Also I am uncertain how deep the nesting names could be may be 2 or 5 calls deep.


Is there a  command or programmatic way anyone has tried to get the nested names of steps ?


I hope I have stated my problem clearly enough !

it looks like you have to create a vi (or any other piece of code that can work with TestStand APIs) that recursively searches for SequenceCall Steps in a sequence and determines names of sequences called by those steps

Since you meant during execution, I would suggest you lookingup TestStand Call Stack and yes, you can access it programmatically.

yes I know that, everyone knows, the solution has to be elegant and adjust according  to the sequence no brute force method.
