Explore test results
After AppCode finishes running your tests, it shows the results in the Run tool window on the Test Runner tab.
The console on the right shows the output of the current test session. It allows you to see the detailed information on the test execution and why your tests failed or were ignored.
The Test Runner toolbar located above the list of test results allows you to show and hide successful and ignored tests, display how much time it took to run each test, export, import, and sort test results.
Next to each test on the Test Runner tab, the IDE displays an icon that marks the test status:
Test error. This status is assigned to tests that caused an exception from the tested source code.
Test failed. If at least one child test fails, all its parent tests are marked as failed.
Test in progress.
Test passed successfully.
Test terminated. This status is assigned to tests that were stopped.
If at least one test receives this status, then all unfinished tests and their parent tests are marked as terminated.
