GenericParameterHelper Class

This class is a placeholder for use with generics. It helps you test generic types by letting you pass non-specific type arguments.

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

public class GenericParameterHelper : IComparable, 
	IEnumerable, ICloneable

A unit test might not be able to pass a real type to a generic method that it is testing. That code can instead pass this generic placeholder.

When the Team System testing tools generates a unit test for testing a generic type, the calls that test that generic type use placeholder generic type arguments.
