Nunit Code Snippet

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

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"?>
<CodeSnippets xmlns="">
    <CodeSnippet Format="1.0.0">
                NUnit Test
                    <ToolTip>Replace with test method name</ToolTip>
            <Code Language="CSharp">
            public void $Test_Name$()
And Bob’s your uncle it should appear in your code snippet shortcuts..Ctrl K Ctrl S to access.
