Run, debug, or cover tests in the current document

There are several ways to run, debug or cover unit tests in the current document. You can use action indicators, main menu or shortcuts:

  • To run, debug or cover a single test or all tests in a test class, click the action indicator next to it . In the action list, choose Run/Debug or Cover for a test or Run All/Debug All or Cover All for a test class.

  • Alternatively, you can use the Run Unit Tests Run Unit Tests Control+T R/ Debug Unit Tests Debug Unit Tests Control+T D or Cover Unit Tests Cover Unit Tests Control+T H commands, which are also available in the main menu (ReSharper | Unit Tests) and in the context menu. These commands work differently depending on the caret position or selection in the editor:

    • To run, debug or cover a single test or all tests in a test class, set the caret at the test/test class name, or anywhere inside its declaration in the editor .

    • To run several tests, select the desired tests in the editor .

    • To run all tests in the current file, either select all or set the caret outside test classes.

  • You can run execution or coverage analysis for one of the covering tests of a specific statement by selecting a test in the navigation popup and clicking Cover Tests Themed icon cover screen gray:

Whatever way you choose to run, debug or cover tests, you will see the execution progress, results, and output in the Unit Test Sessions window. If there is an open unit test session, the executed tests are added to that session. If there are no test sessions or the existing ones are locked, then a new tests session is created.

If necessary, you can always repeat execution or coverage analysis of the tests that you executed last by pressing Control+T T or choosing ReSharper | Unit Tests | Repeat Previous Run in the menu.
