JetBrains Rider 2019.1 Help

Analyzing Coverage of .NET Сode

JetBrains Rider integrates with dotCover to provide code coverage features in .NET code.

Note that currently not all dotCover features are available in JetBrains Rider. We focused on support for the most critical functionality:

The features that are not yet available:

  • Coverage analysis of applications

  • Coverage filters

  • Coverage reports (XML, HTML, and so on)

  • Document summary

  • Hot Spots view

  • Continuous testing indicator

  • Opening coverage snapshots

  • Search in Coverage Tree

The overall usage experience of dotCover in JetBrains Rider and dotCover in Visual Studio is almost identical. Therefore, if you need more details on a particular feature of dotCover in JetBrains Rider, refer to the existing dotCover documentation.
