Scripting: what does Step.Parent return?

What does Step.Parent return?

I' m writing a vbld_StepDoneProject event;

I was hoping to iterate through the parent Steps so that the user can see the stack of steps that lead to the particular problematic step. Like:

Failed: Build bob.exe
in Build Bob modules
in Build Main

But Step.Parent doesn't seem to return a Step, because I can't call .Name or .Parent on what it returns.

It returns the parent Steps collection in the object model.

You would need to iterate back through the Steps collection from Step.Index for each successive Step.Indent level (but tracing back from a subroutine or failure step would be tricky).

We do also have on our todo list to expose the CallStack property to scripting.
