public enum UnitTestOutcome

Member nameDescription
FailedThe test failed.
InconclusiveAn Assert.Inconclusive was raised.
PassedThe test passed.
InProgressThe test is currently running.
UnknownThe outcome of the test is unknown.

The members of this class contain a subset of all the possible test outcomes. For more information, see Basic Test Results.

You can refer to this class, for example, from a test method or a test-cleanup method that follows a unit test.

The UnitTestOutcome is passed in the TestContext.

You could compare TestContext.Outcome with UnitTestOutcome.Failed to determine the result of a specific test, and then take appropriate action, such as deleting certain files from the hard disk.
