Issue Details

I have a sequence file with a VI set as reentrant. How can I get a cloned VI name and its reference into TestStand?

Solution

Unfortunately TestStand itself doesn't know which clone it is opening. TestStand just tries to open the VI and, if this is already in memory and configured reentrant, it opens another clone. So the only way to get the clone ID is passing it from LabVIEW to TestStand throughout the solution and the related property node, both described in the Related Links section.
