WebTestRequest.Outcome Property

Gets or sets the Pass or Fail outcome of the Web test request.

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

public function get Outcome () : Outcome 
public function set Outcome (value : Outcome)

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting.Outcome
The outcome of the Web test request.

The primary reason to set WebTestRequest.Outcome is to ignore an expected failure so that the WebTestRequest is marked as Passed despite the expected failure.

If your Web test code sets the Outcome of a WebTestRequest, it should do so in a PostRequest event handler, because if you set it earlier the Web test runtime engine might override the value that you set.
