Get tags programmatically

Is there a way to extract all used tags from a project from outside the test complete application?

I want to build a stand alone application that a user can checkbox desired tags to run and will build the command line execution.

Re: Get tags programmatically

Tags are embedded in script code and are tagged into the XML of a keyword test.  So, you'd have to parse the text of both files to find tags, probably via some sort of Regular Expression, and extract them that way.

Personally... that seems a bit of a harder work than necessary.  How about, instead of that, have the developers who add the tags, as a part of their development, insert a record into a data table that this other application that you're writing/working with can read to display available tags?

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
