Successfully merging a pull request may close this issue. If I have a test case to test this method with 2 integers 3 and 4, the test would be called Multiply_3_And_4_Should_Be_12. But of course, it's just an example you created to illustrate the problem. That's a bit surprising as I would expect them to be invalid due to a failure to convert from string to DateTime. The IApplyToContext interface is used to set the culture of the thread being used to run the test when execution starts. Any attributes that modify the test case run. I can't find such an issue - or even remember one. Sign in But by using the TestCase parameters we can use same test method for different ages. Charlie, On Fri, Jan 27, 2017 at 12:25 PM, Chris Maddock ***@***. If we could build it first, then the property would be accessible at the point where we are building the tests. This avoids duplicate tests and longer executions. good idea to bring CurrentCulture into this at all. Currently, this uses the Invariant culture. So, not a big issue IMO. Because of that we need a better way to assert DateTimes with some delta. These provide two mechanisms that allow you to easily run the same test with multiple input data. The first set of attributes, TestCase and TestCaseSource, define complete test cases. We can't use various threads because until the test is constructed, we don't know how it is supposed to be run. Perhaps what we should do is collect all such issues now so that we can review their disparate needs when we design the v4 API in the distant future. I haven't investigated much at all - but I can see the method which converts the TestCaseAttribute parameters is also passed the parent suite Test. I'd suggest the culture used is either invariant or explicitly set by the user, This would be great, if would be possible (for example by specifying test assembly culture), ... ignoring NUnit's own culture definition here seems inconsistent, For me the unit tests like contract specification. I'm good with either decision. @nunit/core-team @nunit/framework-team please chime in with your thoughts. @ChrisMaddock @jnm2 While "How could we implement this" is interesting, I'm still at "Should we? When we write tests – unit, integration, UI, etc. Your email address will not be published. That wouldn't eliminate this issue, of course, which applies to situations where the user wants to set the culture on an individual test case. NUnit is Open Source software and NUnit 3.0 is released under the MIT license. Asking that the developer use invariant culture does not change the tests in any way and also ensures that tests run the same way on all machines. In xUnit, the most basic test method is a public parameterless method decorated with the [Fact] attribute. Please note I’ve also added two more test cases to check edge cases of sum total being equal to 0 and 100. Definitely not suggesting we change that! But that leaves a lot of work we can accomplish. I expect that when I change the TestExecutionContext.CurrentCulture using SetCultureAttribute for test / test fixture, the converter should use the new culture info. Thanks. This would allow CurrentCulture to be used for all test where culture mattered, and CurrentCulture would be the culture set on the command line. I can't imagine anyone would expect that, although they may have discovered it works that way and compensated for it. You can check the details of Nunit from here. Below is the example. Ideally, I would break it into two tests, one for passing test cases and one for failing test cases. Requiring invariant for the data arguments is clear and consistent. . But the more I think about it, the less obvious the decision between the two seems. date) { } If you used a string parameter and converted it in your test, it would work as you expect. We should support invariant culture for date strings and nothing else. If we made SetCultureAttribute implement IApplyToTest instead of IApplyToContext - would it be possible to ensure the attribute is evaluated in time, for the culture to be set on the parent, and then retrieved as the child tests are being built? Successfully added 'NUnit 2.6.0.12054' to MyTests. If it results in too much code duplication, you could always call a third private method. September 7, 2014 .NET. privacy statement. You said you could see the logic of either side and you would do it if it wasn't a lot of work. Currently, for example, SetCulture implements two interfaces. They are read by humans and humans prefer their local language :) Any way, the solution should be clear and consistent. [TestCase("Hello", DateTime.Today(), "Hello was False")] public void SomeMethod_Always_DoesSomethingWithParameters(string input1, DateTime input2, string expectedResult){ } Another limitation of TestCaseAttribute is that it is not possible to reuse your test case data because the attribute containing the test data is tied to a single TestMethod. We have 200+ outstanding issues, many quite important. Especially as NUnit is already implicitly converting the string to a DateTime - ignoring NUnit's own culture definition here seems inconsistent. @jnm2 - just looking at that section of the TestBuilder you linked to - I wonder if the child tests need to be created before the ParameterizedMethodSuite, or if that could be created first, and passed down to BuildFrom so the culture information is available. These options are a nice gateway to property-based testing as well. Copyright © 2020 Ivan Krivyakov. You can specify the date as a constant string in the TestCase attribute and then specify the type as DateTime in the method signature. Có I said there are some limitation on what we can pass in InlineDataattribute, look what happens when we try to pass a new instance of some object: We can pass this kind of data to our theory with Cl… When we write tests – unit, integration, UI, etc. In some other cases, however, it might be. Utc)); Making the clock a service. As far as I am concerned, the attributes that feed the test are NUnit code and should be invariant. Notka: NUnit konwertuje typy za pomocą metody Convert.ChangeType. ", Sorry - I noticed I hadn't answered that question, but thought the conversation had moved on further. This is more code, but it works. Currently, this uses the Invariant culture. to your account. Another possibility, which might be better from a backward compatibility point of view is that we give the TestCase and Values attributes optional Culture properties that will be used when converting from a string. parameter instead of having to use TestCaseSource. However, as I already explained, at the time we are doing the conversion, the culture has not yet been changed to match the SetCulture attribute. Personally, adding this ability adds unneeded complexity to our code and will end up confusing as many people as it satisfies. The solution is to supply test data in runtime, using [ValueSource] attribute. This is when the arguments are accessed, so this is when the DateTime would be parsed. At that point, the SetCulture attribute sets the current culture of the execution thread. has a certain logic, since the cases and the SetCulture attribute are so The test builder interface is called to create the test. Users passing in strings and us converting them to dates is a convenience that NUnit provides because the values in test case attributes must be const. and should be invariant. IApplyToDiscovery.Apply should probably receive IMethodInfo and the parent suite too? . and also ensures that tests run the same way on all machines. Adding It would mean big changes which I'd be in favor of. . I like IApplyToDiscovery. Letting a SetCulture change which culture is used for data arguments also Also, the hierarchy is not helpful here, since all tests are constructed before any tests are run. TestCase attribute and ValuesAttribute do a special conversion from string to DateTime when needed, because it's not possible to specify a DateTime value to an attribute. The first of these is the attribute. Install the nunit via nuget: PM> install-package nunit Successfully installed 'NUnit 2.6.0.12054'. — Definitely not suggesting we change that! nUnit has a great feature of running multiple similar test cases via data-driven approach: However, that does not work with dates, since DateTime is not a primitive type and cannot be used in an attribute. The success of NUnit has been made possible through the hard work of our many contributors and team members. Which is better during test creation- actually setting the thread's culture, or passing in the correct CultureInfo to DateTime.Parse? TestCaseSource "just" for converting seems for me a bit overhead, I would prefer to have test parameter values closer to the test method header. How to run Nunit selected test cases through command line Showing 1-14 of 14 messages. (https://github.com/nunit/nunit/blob/master/src/NUnitFramework/framework/Internal/Builders/DefaultTestCaseBuilder.cs#L142-L150), Thought there must be something else too it - that's irritating! ", While "How could we implement this" is interesting, I'm still at "Should we? Order of Execution. CultureInfo.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("de-DE", false) This allows tests to run on any machine no matter the culture. Reply to this email directly, view it on GitHub implicitly converting the string to a DateTime - ignoring NUnit's own Modified comparisons to pass the Turkey test. Tôi thấy TestCasetính năng này trong NUnit khá hữu ích nhÆ° một cách nhanh chóng để chỉ định các tham số kiểm tra mà không cần một phÆ°Æ¡ng thức riêng cho mỗi thá»­ nghiệm. For different ages we have to write different test cases. The following example tests that when we p… <, TestCase and Values do not correctly convert DateTime string in current culture, CanConvertStringToDateTimeInCurrentCulture. I can see the logic of your view. By clicking “Sign up for GitHub”, you agree to our terms of service and Rob Prouse: [TestCase("2000-01-01")] public void Foo(DateTime? The problem here is that NUnit uses various attributes at different points in the life cycle of the test. Perhaps I moved it to backlog too soon. @jnm2 I'd like to hear more about your feeling of hitting a ceiling. 3053 - Conversion from TestCase string parameter to DateTimeOffset, No, for me this is just one use case "date/time in familar format". I'm going to use the super-trivial and clichéd \"calculator\", shown below:The Add method takes two numbers, adds them together and returns the result.We'll start by creating our first xUnit test for this class. Converting string into DateTime the TestCase, Values attributes use invariant culture System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture. Assert DateTime the Right Way MSTest NUnit C# Code. NUnit itself implements the testing frameworks and its contracts. Alternatively, if the command line option were specified, then that culture would be automatically used instead of the InvariantCulture wherever appropriate. lot of work to make the change - it's just not worth it. To discover or execute test cases, VSTest would call the test adapters based on your project configuration. either invariant *or* explicitly set by the user - I don't think it's a I'd also prefer to avoid doing anything based on current culture - we've been bit before by different cultures on different machines - sounds like we allowed this inside the test building logic, it could take a bit of untangling. One simple way to deal with this at a user level is to pass a string argument and convert to a culture-dependent value within the test itself. By implementing IApplyToDiscovery.Apply(IMethodTestSettings) or similar, SetCultureAttribute could modify IMethodTestSettings.CultureInfo. If we do change - then it may cause issues for anyone who's previously encountered this problem and just worked around it - but my thoughts are that 'fixing' this would be a 'less-surprising' approach. Thank everyone for quick response. So NUnit.TestAdapter exists for that purposes. I haven't looked at any other ITestBuilders to see if it would affect anything else. As an immediate fix, how do you fell about specifying the culture on each test case? Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. For example if you want to compare: 2014.10.10 20:20:19 and 2014.10.10 20:20:20 These DateTimes are almost equal to a 1-second difference. So the set culture should appear as a property of the parameterized method suite. FakeOrder was passed into the Purchase class to satisfy the requirements of the constructor. To use it as a Mock, you could do something like this Nunit within datetime. The test framework will call the test method one test case at a time with all the test case’s parameter values. @CharliePoole Gotcha. Powered by WordPress and Stargazer. There's no threading issue here, since this is not run at execution time. The parent suite test is the grandparent of the test cases and the shared parent of each method, so for TestCaseAttribute it's always the entire fixture. (That is why NUnit/xUnit/MSTest all ask you to install a test adapter NuGet package to your unit testing projects). If you compare your expected DateTime with the real one, they usually won’t be equal because of the seconds, milliseconds, etc. If we focus on how we wish we had done it, there will be a great many more that are "impossible" to do. Your example can easily be fixed if you merely change the data to what NUnit expects in the first place. I wouldn't be against it as a console feature for those who need it. NUnit will construct it using either the default constructor or - if arguments are provided - the appropriate constructor for those arguments. The NUnit Project is a member of the .NET Foundation.NUnit is run by the core team, Rob Prouse, Charlie Poole, Terje Sandstrom, Chris Maddock, Joseph Musser and Mikkel Nylander Bundgaard.The .NET Foundation will provide guidance and support to help ensure the future of the project.. I don't like [TestCase("12.10.1942", Culture="de-DE")] because it's pure noise for multiple test cases. I found a simple way of doing this that involved effectively wrapping the date class with a mock, but passing through calls to the constructor to the real class (and returning real instances). Well, I can see both sides. That would be a general solution for many cases and is consistent with the framework architecture. at the beginning of a test has solved many similar issues for me. What is wrong with NUnit using invariant culture to parse the TestCase? For that, NUnit provides the Order attribute. SetCultureAttribute could set IMethodTestSettings.CultureInfo and TestCaseAttribute.BuildFrom could read it when converting strings to dates. I wouldn't do it, however, if it required a As far as I am concerned, the culture that is set on the test should only change the behaviour of the test code itself. In order to learn how to write good test cases, we must first understand what is a test case and why do we need it. Required fields are marked *. Another problem we have in these long-running threads is that we talk about multiple proposals that change over time. However, as has been mentioned, the method suite is not built until after all the tests are built. My guess is that we might find a dozen or so that are blocked by the basic design within which we are working. Are there other cases where that's not a valid solution? To fully "fix" this, the TestCase and Values attributes would have to be aware of the test property that SetCulture attribute. If we're going to write some unit tests, it's easiest to have something we want to test. Przepis jest następujący – Atrybutowi metody TestCase przypisujemy kolejno wartości, które są odwzorowaniem parametrów naszego testu. I don't understand the point of this? NUnit TestRunner will pick a string array from GetEnumerator method and pass one by one into the test method. @jnm2 I'm not sure what you saw me supporting. If set to a non-empty string, then Ignore is assumed to be true. The method must, of course take a single argument of the same type for this to work. That doesn't put me in agreement with you. ... [nunit-discuss] TestCase and ExpectedException in nunit v3. @jnm2 I wrote that immediately after the line that states my preference for the opposite. Sometimes we need to execute test methods in a particular order. TestCase arguments are used when we have to use same test case with different data. In the example code above, all the user is effectively testing is how NUnit converts dates. As far as I am concerned, the attributes that feed the test are NUnit code and should be invariant. @morgen2009 Are you sure your tests fail? Testing this method is problematic because the program depends on DateTime.Now, a method that depends on the computer's clock, an environment-dependent, non-deterministic method. That's why I was envisioning an IMethodTestSettings because at the point where BuildFrom is called, the method-level test instance has not been instantiated yet. We’ll occasionally send you account related emails. I've been noticing us hitting a ceiling with various aspects of the current system in recent issues and ever since one of my first PRs. That's something we could do rather quickly even if it isn't the full answer. In the case of this example, the SetCulture attribute would no longer be needed. SendExpiryNotifications (new DateTime (2015, 4, 4, 14, 0, 0, DateTimeKind. NUnit uses the parameters to differentiate individual test cases. could be used to set the culture when the test is being loaded. It's very hard to figure out who is where on an issue in that case, so I can understand how anyone could get confused. nUnit test cases with dates. https://github.com/nunit/nunit/blob/master/src/NUnitFramework/framework/Internal/Builders/DefaultTestCaseBuilder.cs#L142-L150, https://github.com/notifications/unsubscribe-auth/ACjfhUna3-JEQwWRJ6LxAF5pjcG4XtAyks5rWlLTgaJpZM4LtbZq. The TestCase Attribute. I can understand the confusion of defining a test to be de-DE, and then finding part of that test actually uses Invariant culture. There may have been discussion somewhere, without creating an issue. If users really want to convert strings to dates using a culture, they can do it themselves in a TestCaseSource. But that's a different story. So you could then use... Hmmm... that may be the solution. In NUnit 2.5, individual test cases are sorted alphabetically and executed in that order. I'd suggest the culture used is How to run Nunit selected test cases through command line: Udhaya Kumar: 9/30/13 5:58 AM: Hi All, This will be more helpful to me if any idea to run Nunit selected test cases through command line. With NUnit 2.5.1, the individual cases are not sorted, but are executed in the order in which NUnit … This is a simplest form of testing our theory with data, but it has its drawbacks, which is we don’t have much flexibility, let’s see how it works first. and also ensures that tests run the same way on all machines. In your case, the TestCase, Test and Values attributes are used to create the test. Maybe a notice on the nunit-discuss list with a specified time to respond? @ChrisMaddock I was asking the question because it seems to me we should have some standard approach when we are about to make a change that could impact some people. In mos… . ***> wrote: I would vote to close this. Should IMethodTestSettings include an IMethodInfo property and be used instead of current IMethodInfo parameters? To be sure, completing so many issues would mean thinking in terms of how NUnit now works and fitting our changes into that framework. Why to not use System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture instead of System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture? I'm also inclined to think that backward compatibility is not a big problem in this case. That's not consensus. For convenience it'd be nice if TestCase supported nullable types so you could have for example a DateTime? Furthermore, the DateTime.Now is a static property so a stub type can't be used here. This seems like a rather ugly solution! I'm also in favor of parsing them invariantly unless there is a SetCulture attribute and then using the given culture. If you compare your expected DateTime with the real one, they usually won’t be equal because of the seconds, milliseconds, etc. Already on GitHub? confusion of defining a test to be de-DE, and then finding part of that Is there anything similar in MSTest? You can think of them like rows in a table containing values for each of the test’s parameters. I can understand the However, the framework’s built-in methods not always can help us. It's basically equivalent to setting the culture at the assembly level, which is already supported. IMO we have a lot of power in the existing design along with a few flaws I would love to fix in some future major release. Get code examples like "how to pass object as test case in nunit c#" instantly right from your google search results with the Grepper Chrome Extension. We could use the current culture as @morgen2009 suggests. This order has never mattered before, because the property is not used for anything except being reported in the test result. I prefer the latter. Was this related to my point Charlie? var secondDate = new DateTime (2000, 6, day, hour, 0, 0); TimeSpan actual = Calculator .SubtractDates (firstDate, secondDate); Assert .That (actual.Hours, Is .EqualTo (expectedHours)); } TestCase is limited in that the constructor will accept only constant, typeof, or array creation expressions. TestCase attribute and ValuesAttribute do a special conversion from string to DateTime when needed, because it's not possible to specify a DateTime value to an attribute. Again, I saw your, Chris' and my support for the idea. test actually uses Invariant culture. Specifies the reason for ignoring this test case. The discovery/loading/construction of tests always takes place on the same thread. 'Invariant-or-follow-SetCulture' as well as 'invariant-only' allows the tests to run on any machine no matter the culture settings of the machine. NUnit TestCase Arguments / Parameters. Since the cases are created by many different attributes, each one of them would need to be aware of the presence of a SetCultureAttribute and act on it. I know I've been wrong in the past when I thought some change would not have an impact on many people. In this case, setting a property in the test. Have a question about this project? As you see above, we provide some values in InlineData and xUnit will create two tests and every time populates the test case arguments with what we’ve passed into InlineData. Unfortunately datetime.date is written in C, and so I couldn’t just monkey-patch out the static date.today() method. It makes a significant difference to how this might be remedied. I saw again the TestCaseAttribute and ValuesAttribute classes. Testing software is always a real challenges for developers and testers, because many types of test cases exists and also come in so many different shapes and sizes. close together in the source. By using a string argument but making the test parameter a DateTime, you're forcing the conversion to take place at the earliest stage, when the test is created. This framework is very easy to work with and has user friendly attributes for working. NUnit provides a feature called Parameterized Tests. Modified code below. They would have to anticipate that what the SetCulture attribute means and what it is going to do at the time the test is run. We can see the output below: The [Pairwise] attribute works similarly to the [Combinatorial] attribute, but rather than executing every input against each other, it reduces the test cases to only those that actually test a unique combination. Whichever is better for the test case. As well repeating the same code in each constructor. As far as I am concerned, the attributes that feed the test are NUnit code @jnm2 That would mean very big changes unless we added explicit knowledge of those attributes at load-time. Should IApplyToDiscovery be IApplyToTestCreation? NUnit TestCase Execution Order. Thanks in … Whether typed or handwritten. For example, in the above case, we fixed the age of employee as 60. Alternatively, you could use a TestCaseSource attribute on a method that yields DateTimes constructed in any way you like. Is this not something of an implementation detail? However, the framework’s built-in methods not always can help us. we often need to assert DateTimeobjects. You are receiving this because you were mentioned. What do you think about? You're not using the FakeOrder in any shape or form during the assert. [In this example, it would do the same thing that it does at execution time, but that might not be the case for every attribute.]. PM> Now we have to create a Moles file on the mscorlib assembly (This is the one DateTime sits in). If A New Comment Is Posted:Do Not Send Email Notifications.Send Email Notification ONLY If Someone Replies To My Comment(s).Send Email Notification Whenever A New Comment Is Posted. IApplyToDiscovery is the nicest idea suggested so far imo. I find the TestCase feature in NUnit quite useful as a quick way to specify test parameters without needing a separate method for each test. but I can see the method which converts the TestCaseAttribute parameters is also passed the parent suite Test. What breaks if the culture is initially stored on the test, before being copied over to the execution context? -> The fix is probably to have NUnit use this constructor for CultureInfo when applying a SetCulture attribute. Especially as NUnit is already Ok... so having given some workarounds, which I agree are not ideal, are there options to "fix" this or is it something we don't want to fix. A third interface (IApplyToDiscovery?) Now let’s change unit tests to use a test case source to provide testing cases for the same method, this way we can leave a single test and just add different values as parameters. However, this reminds me of a very similar thread in which we trade places. It should have the following characteristics: It may be a field, a non-indexed property or a method taking no arguments. I spend almost no time thinking about those flaws most of the time because there is too much to do. I'm not sure what you mean.
