Using NUnit’s TestCase Attribute

In the last post, we setup an NUnit test project and ran it in Visual Studio. In this post we are going to expand on that code to add more unit tests using the NUnit TestCase attribute.

Looking back at the last post, we are testing a method that converts an enum value to a friendly string by splitting the enum name at capitals. In that post, we only tested with one enum value. In this post, we will test with multiple enum values to ensure that the method handles every type of input. We will then remove code duplication by using the [TestCase] attribute to run one test many times with different data. (more…)

Introduction to Unit Tests with NUnit

You have a new project and you want to add unit tests, where do you start?  This tutorial walks you through adding an NUnit test project, writing your first tests and running them in Visual Studio.

I am starting here with a project that contains a simple class that contains an extension method that converts an enum value to a friendly string by splitting the enum name at capitals.

NUnit 3 Tests for .NET Core RC2 and ASP.NET Core RC2

Update: I have released beta 1 of dotnet-test-nunit which has been updated to the RTM of .NET Core 1.0. I have updated this post and the code on GitHub to reflect the changes.

The NUnit team has been working hard since .NET Core RC2 and ASP.NET Core RC2 was released last month to add full NUnit testing for .NET Core, and we are happy to announce the second alpha release of dotnet-test-nunit.

In my previous blog posts, I explained how to use NUnit to test .NET Core using NUnitLite which worked, but was not the ideal solution. The new dotnet-test-nunit allows you to test from the command line using the dotnet test command and allows you to run your tests within Visual Studio. (more…)
