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

public ExpectedExceptionAttribute(
	Type exceptionType
)

Parameters

exceptionType
Type: Type

An expected type of exception to be thrown by a method.

If exceptionType is null, a diagnostic message will be sent to a trace listener.

The following class contains the method to test:

using System;

namespace MyCSNamespace
{
    public class DivisionClass
    {
        public int Divide(int numerator, int denominator)
        {
            return numerator / denominator;
        }
    }
}

The following test method tests the Divide method of the DivisionClass object. It tests for the existence of a DivideByZeroException.

using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;
using MyCSNamespace;

namespace MyCSTestProject
{
    [TestClass()]
    public class DivisionClassTest
    {
        [TestMethod()]
        [ExpectedException(typeof(System.DivideByZeroException))]
        public void DivideTest()
        {
            DivisionClass target = new DivisionClass();
            int numerator = 4;
            int denominator = 0;
            int actual;
            actual = target.Divide(numerator, denominator);
        }
    }
}
