    • Support Xamarin in Visual Studio 2017

      Official Visual Studio 2017 with Xamarin support would be nice. In the moment it does only work the you edit Xamarin.forms.Targets file, what is annoying.

      • Add engine mode condition "Test is included in coverage filter"

        Related to https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2665_-Impacted-test--ignoring-coverage-filter.aspx

        I would like to create an engine mode which runs condition ("impacted tests" AND "included in coverage filter"). Where "included in coverage filter" is true if no UI coverage filter is used, or the tests is covered by such a filter.

        Scenario: I have a lot of pinned tests and want to focus on say 3 tests to quickly verify a fix in a part of code so I filter on those tests. I would then like to have an engine mode only running these tests in filter, but still execute impacted tests (so I don't manually…

        • Add overlay icon in Tests window indicating if test is included in UI coverage filter

          I would like to easy spot which tests in my test are included in current UI coverage filter.
          Given I have a coverage filter set, I would like an icon on the test (e.g. red X with some small overlay icon for a failing test) so I easily can see which tests that are currently used in coverage filter (e.g. when have 20 pinned tests and showing coverage for only 5 of them).

          • Add count of pinned tests in Tests window summary

            Today the tests window states e.g. "No tests are queued for execution. Monitoring 150 tests (10 failing), with 20 tests ignored."
            I would like that text to include how many tests I have pinned (easy to tell if a new one gets pinned or not for example via engine mode).

            • Add "Test sessions"/workspaces for test window

              I would like, similar to ReSharper, to be able to save a collection of tests in a session/tab in order to work on it later on.

              Scenario: I have 20 pinned failing tests which I am currently have in my worklog to fix. At one point in time I want to focus on a few other tests. I would like to save the 20 pinned tests in a tab, and pin 4 other tests in order to focus on those, and then later get back to the 20 pinned tests I was originally working on

              Note: It might as well…

              • Add toolbar button for filtering running/queued tests in Tests window

                I have a large amount of tests but would like to see which tests are currently being executed or pending execution (without showing all passed tests/projects), even if test was previously passing.

                This so I can get an overview of the "backlog" of the current work queue and easily utilize the Search filter/sorting etc.

                The Processing Queue Window is good to know what is "happening" but I would like to have similar info in the Tests window (more focused on test itself versus all other info build/analyze/servers etc.)

                • Filter settings in NCrunch Configuration window by name

                  Similar to the "Search" edit for tests I would like a "Search" edit for settings. This so I quickly can change setting I am looking for by typing e.g. "env" to find the custom enviornment variables settings (for the current settings layer I have selected)

                  • Abort grid node processing in NCrunch Console if no more tests are to be executed

                    From forum: https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2641_Why-is-not-NCrunch-aborting-build-analysis-on-pending-grid-nodes-when-no-work-remains.aspx

                    If I have 1 slow grid node connected to NCrunch Console, and NCrunch engine has completed all tests for the engine mode, I want the slow grid node to abort its build/analyze processing since there are no more tests to execute anyhow.

                    Background: My NCrunchConsole runs on a fast server, one grid node might be very slow. So even though the console tool is completed building/analyzing/running tests within 3 minutes, it sits and wait for the slow grid node to complete building for another e.g. 15 minutes (see forum post for a timeline example).

                    • "Pin tests" link in "coverage has been set to show X test only" window

                      Similar to https://ncrunch.uservoice.com/forums/245203-feature-requests/suggestions/6363545-when-showing-coverage-for-specific-tests-show-icon , I have X pinned tests, and currently only show coverage for 1 test.
                      The code I am looking indicates uncovered (or filtered due to coverage filter).
                      I would like a link similar "Click to return to normal" that reveals the tests currently showing coverage for (easiest way I guess is to pin them).
                      This way I can easily navigate to the tests currently used in coverage filter, without currently having covered code under cursor.

                      • Add RMB menu "Run starting test on all enabled servers"

                        I have an explicit test which resets database to a clean state. If for whatever reason the db state becomes invalid, I would like to run this test on all connected/enabled "servers" (local and grid nodes).

                        Today I must select one by one ("Run starting test on server>X ") to ensure db is reset within each grid node.

                        • Option to always show compile warnings

                          [v3.23.0.10]
                          Today compile warnings are hidden with NCrunch for successfully built projects, I must select to "show all tests" and then select each project to see them.

                          I would like a toolbar button or similar which toggles compile warnings, so I can always spot those before committing even if project builds without errors.

                          • Incremental build for console tool

                            From https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2644_Incremental-build-with-NCrunch-console.aspx

                            I run NCrunch console on TeamCity with engine mode "run impacted tests only" (with switch -NCrunchCacheStoragePath) but the build/analyze phase is always restarting from scratch instead of utilizing "incremental build" functionality, which causes the session to run longer than needed even if no source files have been modified.

                            I would want, in some way, to have the console tool session behave as an "incremental build" with MsBuild would do, granted nothing has changed in source files and NCrunch cache folder is kept between sessions.

                            • Allow to run in memory only

                              It would be nice if I could run ncrunch in memory only. That would extend the lifetime of SSDs and would be much faster. At the moment this is only possible with a ram drive.

                                (going "all in" the grid component could maybe be replaced with a component with filter-per-column possibilities)

                                • Pin tests matching engine mode

                                  Before selecting an engine mode (e.g. "Performance Tests") I would like to see which tests that would be executed for this mode, e.g. by pinning them. This way I can choose only to test run a single matching test for triage.

                                  Ideas for implementation:
                                  A) Create a sub menu on each engine mode "Pin matching tests" or similar, while the top menu item (engine mode name) still behaves as today.

                                  B) Add a NCrunch tests window toolbar button "Do not run tests automatically", then add a menu item "Pin test matching current engine mode". Then one can disable auto-execution, select…

                                    • Sign all application exe files

                                      Please sign all the exe files installed and utilized during execution so that we can whitelist your exe files with security software.

                                      • Support Install Directory Outside of AppData

                                        Due to security restrictions on programs executing out of AppData at my company, they whitelist another directory where we can install development software. Because NCrunch does not allow an install directory outside of AppData, I am unable to get it to work under this security policy.

                                        It is pretty common to allow custom install paths, so I am requesting that you support this feature for NCrunch as well.

                                        • Add "Configure selected component" RMB menu on NCrunch project warnings

                                          [v3.22]
                                          Today I can select a project in NCrunch Tests window and RMB and choose "Configure selected component" to easily find it in the NCrunch Configuration pane.
                                          However for project warnings I cannot do this (e.g. for warning "NCrunch detected unusual behaviour around the resolution of referenced assemblies required by this project in its test environment"). and must manually navigate to the project in the configuration pane, which is tedious for large solutions.
