Hi Guys,

I have a basic test below which I created as a Visual c# unit test project. The test works fine however when I try to read the data from a csv file I don't get the option to use TestContext.DataRow. This worked fine when I used it in a codedUI project. Do I need to add another reference to my project or is there any other reason why I cannot code it this way

using System;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;
using OpenQA.Selenium;
using OpenQA.Selenium.IE;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Support;


namespace SeleniumTesting
{
    [TestClass]
    public class UnitTest1
    {
       // [TestMethod]
        [DataSource("Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.DataSource.CSV", "data.csv", "data#csv", DataAccessMethod.Sequential), DeploymentItem("data.csv"), TestMethod]
        public void TestMethod1()
        {
            IWebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver(@"C:\Software\Selenium\IEDriver");
            driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("http://www.google.com.au");
            driver.Navigate().GoToUrl(TestContext.)
            
        }
    }
}

Open in new window


Thanks

Gavin

If the data source is a list of urls, I think you need to add .DataRow to your TestContext.

I use selenium in java, so I don't have a working example to base that on... but that's what it looks like based on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.visualstudio.testtools.unittesting.testcontext.aspx
