dotCover Web Help

The dotCover Options dialog box contains almost all configurable settings that affect dotCover behavior.

Using this dialog box, you can:

  • look through default settings and find out why dotCover does this or that
  • change the settings to improve your productivity, minimize distraction or adjust dotCover behavior according to your coding style
  • define custom settings for your solutions or create sets of settings to be used and shared within your team

To configure dotCover options
  1. On the Visual Studio menu, choose dotCover | Options.
    or
    On the main menu of the standalone dotCover application , choose File | Options .
  2. In the dotCover Options dialog box that appears, select a node in the left pane and configure settings in the right pane.

    Note

    A set of options displayed in the right pane as a result of selecting a node in the left pane is called page throughout dotCover Help.

  3. Click Save to apply the modifications and let dotCover choose the settings layer, or choose a particular settings layer in the Save To drop-down list. To learn more about saving dotCover settings, see JetBrains .NET Tools Blog: Save or Save To in ReSharper Options.

Click Manage to access the Settings Layers dialog that helps manage settings layers. For more detailed instructions, see Managing and Sharing Options.
