ClassInitializeAttribute Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the ClassInitializeAttribute class.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll)

public ClassInitializeAttribute()

The following examples demonstrate the initialization and clean-up attributes used to indicate which methods should be run by the test engine at different periods of the test.

The first code samples contain a class and method to test. To run this example, create a class library project and replace the code with the following example.

using System;

namespace SampleClassLib
{
    public class DivideClass
    {
        public static int DivideMethod(int denominator)
        {
            return (2 / denominator);
        }
    }
}

The following example contains code to test DivideMethod() found in the previous code examples. Create a test project and put the following code in a test class document. Add the appropriate references to the project. This code contains attributes that control the initialization and clean-up execution order for the method, class, and assembly.

In particular, note the ClassInitialize attribute on the ClassInit()method.

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

namespace TestNamespace
{
    [TestClass()]
    public sealed class DivideClassTest
    {
        [AssemblyInitialize()]
        public static void AssemblyInit(TestContext context)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("AssemblyInit " + context.TestName);
        }

        [ClassInitialize()]
        public static void ClassInit(TestContext context)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("ClassInit " + context.TestName);
        }

        [TestInitialize()]
        public void Initialize()
        {
            MessageBox.Show("TestMethodInit");
        }

        [TestCleanup()]
        public void Cleanup()
        {
            MessageBox.Show("TestMethodCleanup");
        }

        [ClassCleanup()]
        public static void ClassCleanup()
        {
            MessageBox.Show("ClassCleanup");
        }

        [AssemblyCleanup()]
        public static void AssemblyCleanup()
        {
            MessageBox.Show("AssemblyCleanup");
        }

        [TestMethod()]
        [ExpectedException(typeof(System.DivideByZeroException))]
        public void DivideMethodTest()
        {
            DivideClass.DivideMethod(0);
        }
    }
}
