Unable to retrieve testcase steps via SOAP

Hi,

i'm trying to create a custom export for our testcases in spiratest 4.0. However, when trying to retrieve the teststeps from a testcase using soap, I get a null value instead of the actual step.
Does anyone have a clue (or even better, a solution) on what's going wrong here?

Thank you!
Johan Laebens


I'm using the following code:

Hi Johan

For performance reasons we don't include the test steps when you retrieve a list of test cases by folder.

For each test case, you will need to call the web service again using the TestCase_RetrieveById(...) function to get the test case and its associated test steps.

Regards

Sarah.
