Unit Testing

ReSharper| Options | Tools | Unit Testing

On this page of dotCover options, you can adjust unit testing settings.




Default platform architecture

This selector allows choosing a platform to run unit tests on.

Default .NET Framework version

This selector allows setting .NET version to use when running unit tests.

Run up to [number of assemblies] assemblies in parallel

Select the number of assemblies to be tested by dotCover concurrently in parallel threads.

Skip tests from categories

Type names of test categories to be excluded from the run. The tests associated with the category that you specified are ignored. For more information, see Working with Test Categories

Unit Test Sessions

Save and restore Unit Test Sessions

Select this check box to allow dotCover to restore unit test sessions when you close and reopen Visual Studio.

Show log entries with severity

This selector lets you specify which log entries should appear in the execution log in the Unit Test Sessions window.

Unit Test Output

Wrap long lines in Unit Test Session output

Defines how to display long lines in the Output tab in the Unit Test Sessions window. If this check box is selected, long lines are wrapped.

Limit the number of lines in output to:

Defines how to many lines should be displayed in the Output tab in the Unit Test Sessions window.

Unit Test Runner

Shadow-copy assemblies being tested

If this check box is selected, assemblies being tested are subject to shadow-copying. So even while the tests are running, assemblies can be rebuilt.

Use separate AppDomain for each assembly with tests

This option applies to MSTest and NUnit tests and lets the test runner start each test assembly in its own Application Domain. It may come in handy in the following situations:
  • You need to use different app.config files for different test assemblies.

  • You use reflection in tests.

Check for hanging test execution

By default, dotCover notifies you if there is no response from the test execution process.
You may want to disable or configure this option if there is some code that could take long when executing after tests are finished (SetupFixture TearDown, Class TearDown).
