  • Nunit Code Snippet

    Here is a useful code snippet that I use all the time to create an empty unit test.

    To use it go to your My Code Snippets folder, go to the snippet manager in Visual Studio (Ctrl K + Ctrl B) to get the file path if you don’t know it. Create a new text file with and appropriate name and rename the extension to .snippet and cut and paste the following xml into the file and save it.

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

                public void $Test_Name$()
                {
                }
