DataAccessMethod Enumeration

 

Specifies constants that indicate how data rows are accessed in data-driven testing.

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

public enum DataAccessMethod

Member nameDescription
Random

Rows are returned in a random order.

Sequential

Rows are returned in a sequential order.

Legacy Code Example

The following code contains the class and method to test.

using System;

namespace BankAccountNS
{
    public class BankAccount
    {
        private string custName;
        private double bal;

        public BankAccount(string customerName, double balance)
        {
            custName = customerName;
            bal = balance;
        }

        public double Balance
        { get { return bal; } }

        public void Debit(double amount)
        {
            if (amount < 0)
                throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("amount");
            bal -= amount;
        }
    }
}

The following test will pass. It uses the sample.mdb access database that contains the following data.

Note that the DataAccessMethod is sequential.

            double newBalance = bal - amt;

            BankAccount target = new BankAccount(customerName, bal);
            target.Debit(amt);

            Assert.AreEqual(newBalance, target.Balance, .00);
        }
