LoadTestUserContext Class

Encapsulates information about the user context in which a test is running, in a load test.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.LoadTesting
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestFramework.dll)

public class LoadTestUserContext : IDictionary<string, Object>, 
	ICollection<KeyValuePair<string, Object>>, IEnumerable<KeyValuePair<string, Object>>, 

LoadTestUserContext encapsulates information about the user context in which a test is running in a load test.

The code for a unit test that is running in the context of a load test can get a reference to the LoadTestUserContext for the virtual user that is running the unit test by using the key "$LoadTestUserContext" when accessing the TestContext properties.

For example:

    LoadTestUserContext loadTestUserContext = this.TestContext.Properties["$LoadTestUserContext"] as LoadTestUserContext;

Similarly, a coded Web test can access the LoadTestUserContext as follows:

    LoadTestUserContext loadTestUserContext = this.Context["$LoadTestUserContext"] as LoadTestUserContext;

When the unit test or Web test is running outside the context of a load test, the LoadTestUserContext returned by the preceding code is null.
