  • Test fixture
  • SetUp method
  • TearDown method

To create test code constructs using the Generate menu:

  1. Open the test file and place the caret at the desired position in the editor.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose Code | Generate.
    • Right click the editor and choose Generate on the context menu.
    • Press ⌘N
  3. In the Generate menu that appears, select the desired construct. Important note: When generating tests for fixtures, once you have specify a fixture name in the created template, AppCode automatically converts the inserted macro to one of the following types:
    • TEST_F()
    • TEST_P()
    • TYPED_TEST()
    • TYPED_TEST_P()
