This video explores the parts of the standard xUnit project template. See how to use the Fact attribute to designate a test method. Also learn how they run the test from Visual Studio Test Explore tool window.
- [Voiceover] In XUnit you create a class…and put methods in it inside your test project…and then you mark them with the special attributes,…very similar to what you do with MSTest.…The first step I need to do is add a class…to my XUnit project.…In a real testing project,…I wouldn't use this name.…This is not descriptive enough,…but I'm doing it for demonstrations purposes…to differentiate this class from the class…that's in the BrokerageLib.Tests.…We named this one MSTestClass…and this new class is called Xunit.TestClass.…
Over in my Test Explorer,…I'll make sure that I'm grouping by class,…and that way you'll see the different tests…shown here grouped by each class name.…In my XUnit project, I need to add a reference…to BrokerageLib through Solution…and then BrokerageLib…and OK.…At the top of my test class I'll add a using statement…and another one.…I'm ready to write my code…and I've already got some code in my MSTest…that I can re-use.…
I'll copy the contents of this method…and paste them in my new class.…In MSTest, you have to mark the class…
