WebTestPlugin.PreWebTest Method

When overridden in a derived class, represents the method that will handle the event associated with the start of a Web test.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.WebTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.WebTestFramework.dll)

public virtual void PreWebTest(
	Object sender,
	PreWebTestEventArgs e
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting.PreWebTestEventArgs

A PostWebTestEventArgs that contains the event data.

This provides a code execution entry point at the start of a Web test run.

The following example shows a Web test plug-in that adds a random number to the context before the Web test is run using the PreWebTest method. In the same way you can override PostWebTest and perform an action after the Web test has run. For example, you might want to write to a log file the time it takes to complete the Web test and the number of requests issued during the Web test.

using System;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WebTestPluginNamespace
{
    public class MyWebTestPlugin : WebTestPlugin
    {
        public static string NewRandomNumberString(int size)
        {
            byte[] buffer = new byte[size];
            // Seed using system time
            Random random = new Random(unchecked((int)DateTime.Now.Ticks));

            random.NextBytes(buffer);
            return BitConverter.ToInt32(buffer, 0).ToString();
        }

        public override void PreWebTest(object sender, PreWebTestEventArgs e)
        {
            e.WebTest.Context["RandNum"] = NewRandomNumberString(4);
        }
        
    }
}
