Issue Details

I would like to disable the UUT Information dialogue box (seen in figure below) in TestStand. How can I do this?

Solution

Displaying the UUT dialogue box is part of the default behavior of the process model that is used in TestStand. It is the PreUUT Callback Sequence that displays the UUT dialogue box (callbacks are sequences that the process model calls under specific circumstances). 

You will want to add the PreUUT Callback Sequence to your own client sequence file. This is referred to as overriding. When a callback is overridden, rather than calling the code inside of the process model sequence, the code is executed in the client sequence. With this feature, you can implement unique behavior for your particular test sequence without changing the default behavior of the process model. Follow the steps below to override the PreUUT Callback Sequence and configure it to disable the UUT dialogue box. 

Select Edit»Sequence File Callbacks to launch the Sequence File Callbacks dialog box shown below.



Select PreUUT and press Add in order to add it to your client sequence file, and then press OK to close the dialogue box. You will now see the PreUUT Callback in your Sequence pane, as illustrated below.



In the Main step group, right-click the Call DoPreUUT step, and set the Run-Mode to Skip. Note that by skipping (disabling) the UUT dialogue box, the UUT serial number will be set to "NONE".
