- [Voiceover] I'm ready to write some unit test…for testing my brokerage Lib,…and I want to use MS Test.…The first step is to create this project,…and you see I've got a project here…called BrokerageLib.Tests, notice the naming convention?…The name of my system under test,…the name of my unit test project has the same name.…It only has a .Test at the end.…To review how you add a unit test to an existing solution,…right click, choose the Visual C# section,…and then choose Test, and then use…this Unit Test Project, and then name it…BrokerageLib.Tests.…
This project has a reference to…the unit testing framework tools,…but it doesn't have a reference to BrokerageLib.…Let's fix that, go to solution…and put a check mark here, and click okay.…The template comes in one default unit test class.…Inside this file, we can see how…you use MS Test attributes to indicate the test methods.…Every class that contain test methods must be marked…with the test class attribute.…
Any methods that the test runner should run…should be marked with the test method attribute.…
