Programatiicaly determine if a subsequence exists

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:3 

How do I determine if a named sequence exists in a sequence file (not the current sequence file) and if present, execute it? The file in which the sequence resides may or may not be loaded.
I would like to do this within a TestStand sequence (presumably using the TestStand API). I'm using TS 3.0. I know how to dynamically call the sequence, I just need to determine if it exists before calling it.
Now is the right time to use %^<%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%3uZ>T
If you don't hate time zones, you're not a real programmer.

Get a reference to the SequenceFile then you can use the API SequenceFile.SequenceNameExists(sequenceNameParam) and this returns a Boolean.
