TestStand 2021

Sweep Loop Step Enhancements


TestStand 2021 expands the functionality of the existing Sweep Loop step. These updates include the following changes:


  • Create nested and parallel sweeps of parameters by changing the level of one or more parameters in a Sweep Loop step.
  • TestStand automatically creates a variable when you specify a parameter name.
  • Choose between Static and Dynamic mode to specify whether values for a Strategy are specified using constants or expressions.
  • Use the Table View to interact with values and test vectors resulting from a sweep across selected parameters at edit time and run time. Functionality includes the ability to enable or disable, filter, and export test vectors.
  • At execution time, the Table View displays captured data as well as the parameters in the Sweep Loop step.
  • Import and export parameter and test vector data to or from a CSV file.
