Legacy Code Example

The following example shows how to access TestProperty properties from within the MyTestMethod() method.

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

namespace TestProperty
{
   [TestClass]
   public class TestPropertyTest
   {
      [TestMethod()]
      [TestProperty("MyProperty1", "Big")]
      [TestProperty("MyProperty2", "Small")]
      public void MyTestMethod()
      {
         // Get the current type
         Type t = GetType();

         MethodInfo mi = t.GetMethod("MyTestMethod");
         Type MyType = typeof(TestPropertyAttribute);
         object[] attributes = mi.GetCustomAttributes(MyType, false);

         for (int i = 0; i < attributes.Length; i++)
         {
            string name = ((TestPropertyAttribute)attributes[i]).Name;
            string val = ((TestPropertyAttribute)attributes[i]).Value;

            string mystring = string.Format("Property Name: {0}, Value: {1}", name, val);
            MessageBox.Show(mystring);
         }
      }
   }
}
