Work with Coverage Results

No matter what type of coverage analysis you perform, coverage of unit tests, coverage of an application, or coverage of tests on server side, dotCover saves coverage results in a coverage snapshot. You can then further investigate these results using one of the following ways:

  • Coverage Results Browser window (available in both Visual Studio and dotCover standalone application) - this tool window allows opening coverage snapshots recorded during application coverage run or saved in a file.

    If the current snapshot contains assemblies that correspond to the current solution, you can navigate to source code of any item within the snapshot by double-clicking on it.

  • Unit Test Coverage window (available only in Visual Studio) - this tool window displays coverage tree and synchronizes it with unit tests from Unit Test Sessions window.

  • You can quickly view coverage results for the currently opened file by looking at the "shield" icon Shield on the ReSharper marker bar:

    • Depending on the results, the icon will look differently: all statements covered, statements are partly covered, statements are partly covered but some tests fail, and so on.

    • The icon shows the same results that are currently shown in the Unit Test Coverage window.

    If you hover over the icon, you will get more details on total coverage percentage and the number of failed tests.

    Clicking the icon navigates you through the uncovered statements.
