I am using the TestStand UI with Native Controls - Labview example in TestStand in order to build a custom TestStand user interface using LabVIEW. I would like to add the possibility to visualize the Sequence Steps int the Front Panel, as is shown in TestStand. How can I do it?

You have to use the SequenceView control in the TestStand palette.

In order to do it:
  1. Open the Basic UI with Native Controls.vi in the Project Explorer
  2. Right click the LabVIEW front panel to display the Controls palette
  3. Navigate to TestStand -> SequenceView
  4. Open the Basic UI with Native Controls.vi block diagram and open the Configure Connections case
  5. Wire an Invoke Node to the SequenceFileView Manager reference
  6. Right click on the Invoke Node and select Select Method -> Connect Sequence View
  7. Wire the TestStand UI SequenceView Control to the uiObj input

Switch to the Front Panel and run the VI: you should be now able to view the steps of the TestStand sequence loaded.
