TestPropertyAttribute Class

Establishes a test specific property on a method. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework (in microsoft.visualstudio.qualitytools.unittestframework.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true)] 
public sealed class TestPropertyAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true) */ 
public final class TestPropertyAttribute extends Attribute
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true) 
public final class TestPropertyAttribute extends Attribute

To see a property, first rebuild the project and then highlight the test in Test Manager or Test View. The property is viewable in the Properties pane after the project is rebuilt.

This attribute can be specified on a test method. There can be multiple instances of this attribute to specify more than one item.

For more information about how to use attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

The following example shows how to access TestProperty properties from within the MyTestMethod() method.

using System;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Reflection;

namespace TestProperty
{
   [TestClass]
   public class TestPropertyTest
   {
      [TestMethod()]
      [TestProperty("MyProperty1", "Big")]
      [TestProperty("MyProperty2", "Small")]
      public void MyTestMethod()
      {
         // Get the current type
         Type t = GetType();

         MethodInfo mi = t.GetMethod("MyTestMethod");
         Type MyType = typeof(TestPropertyAttribute);
         object[] attributes = mi.GetCustomAttributes(MyType, false);

         for (int i = 0; i < attributes.Length; i++)
         {
            string name = ((TestPropertyAttribute)attributes[i]).Name;
            string val = ((TestPropertyAttribute)attributes[i]).Value;

            string mystring = string.Format("Property Name: {0}, Value: {1}", name, val);
            MessageBox.Show(mystring);
         }
      }
   }
}
