How to: Open a SQL Server Unit Test to Edit

 

After you create a SQL Server unit test, you use the SQL Server Unit Test Designer to add Transact-SQL statements and test conditions. The tests created by using the designer generate Visual C# or Visual Basic code. This code is what executes when your test runs.

If you are satisfied with your test, you can run it as it is. If you want to add more functionality to this unit test, you can edit its code. This code resides in a .cs or .vb file in your test project. For more information, see SQL Server Unit Test Files. You can also customize your tests by creating new test conditions. For more information, see How to: Create Test Conditions for the Database Unit Test Designer (Visual Studio 2010).

System_CAPS_noteNote

If you delete a test method by editing the .cs or .vb file, the test method still appears in the SQL Server Unit Test Designer. This situation occurs because the InitializeComponent method of the test class still contains member variables for that test. Although the test appears in the designer, you cannot run the test because its code is no longer present. To regenerate the test method for this test, edit the Transact-SQL in the editor, and then either save the .cs or .vb test file or rebuild the test project.
