Tutorial :Where is the [TestMethod] Attribute in TypeMock?


Ok, dumb question. I'm trying to set up my first TypeMock demo project in VS2005 but it doesn't recognize the [TestMethod] attribute. I've included both the TypeMock and TypeMock.ArrangeActAssert assemblies and I'm referencing them with "using" statements. Even intellisense can't find the attribute. What am I doing wrong here?


[TestMethod] is from the Visual Studio unit testing 'framework'. The following code shows basically how to use the attribute:

    using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;    [TestClass]  public class MyTests  {      [TestMethod]      public void MyFirstTest()      {          Assert.AreEqual(1, 1);      }  }  

If you're using NUnit or another framework, the attributes are possibily different.


Which unit testing framework are you using? TestMethod sounds like the Visual Studio test system, while the NUnit counterpart is called Test.


I'm guessing that the TestMethodAttribute comes from MSTest, not TypeMock. So you should add a reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework

Edit: This is the namespace where the attribute is defined: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;


[TestMethod] comes from the MSTest library not from the TypeMock framework


Assuming you're using MSTest, you must include [TestClass()] for the class and [TestMethod()] for the tests (don't know if parenthesis are needed).

TypeMock is a mocking framework, so you should worry first for what testing framework you're using.
