  1. VSTS Plugin to show the Code Coverage over time

    The console tool is cool to generate a report. If there would be a VSTS plugin to show the coverage absolut or over time this would be a great feature.

    • Endlessly Churn While Logged out

      I'd like to keep Visual Studio open, log out of my account while keeping the machine on, and have NCrunch run Endless Churn in the background.

      • Scroll wheel zoom For NCrunch Windows

        It would be nice to be able to use the scroll wheel to zoom in/out when in a NCrunch window.

        • Add 'Collapse All' and 'Expand All' buttons in the UI which would allow me to collapse all the test groupings with 1 click

          It's quite time consuming collapsing the test groupings. I often do this when I want to hone in on a specific project but without loosing complete visibility of the rest. At present I have to perform lots and lots of separate mouse clicks to condence the test groups down - and kind of loose the will to live in the process

          • Add coverage markers to the Find Results Window

            When searching for something in the project file, it would be nice to be able to see whether or not the line in the find results window is covered by a test.

            For instance, I know the piece I'm currently testing is sensitive to the use of DateTime.Now so I need to search all places where DateTime.Now is called and then browse to the code to see if the failing test used that instance in the search results.

            • White color for "lines covered by passing tests"

              I have tried using the color white for marking lines covered by passing tests, so that I only get highlights on lines of code needing my attention.

              However, when setting anything above 224 it switches back to black, probably some kind of contrast code that kicks in. Could I ask for an option to turn this behavior off, so that if I *want* white color, I can *get* white color?

              • In Tests window, include analyze time in "Last execution time" for test projects

                For test projects, the "Last execution time" seems to contain the build time, where "Cumulative Build time" (I assume) aggregates these figures.
                Say I have some projects with a build time of 20s, and analyze time of 30s before any test is run, I would like build+analyze time as a column, so I can spot test projects being overall bottlenecks.
                Since analyze time is part of my "sit and wait" period, I get a better overview of which projects are bottle necks if these durations are inccluded in metrics, and can tell which projects I need to split into smaller…

                • Look at working with Live Share

                  Visual Studio Live Share is a new collaborative sharing tool that is currently in development for both VS and VS Code.

                  We are currently evaluating it, and we noticed that annoyingly, there is currently no way to have the nice dots / coverage NCrunch provides to remote guests.

                  There is a task / issue logged with Live Share https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/live-share/issues/125 which they seem interested in creating an API eventually.

                  I think you guys should look at trying to integrate with this... as I believe Live Share looks to be on the right track at the moment... and having NCrunch integrated into…

                  • Churn Mode - More fine grained statistics for test columns

                    When running churn mode I am interested in "Total test executions" i,.e. how many time test has been run in current churn mode, and "Total execution time" i.e. how long the churn mode has been going on (i.e. has it spent 1 minute or 30 minutes).

                    This so I know, when I decide cancel, that I ran it for e.g. 10 000 iterations and/or in 10 minutes so next time I want to "churn it" I get a hint how long I need to churn it .

                    • Time limit option for Churn mode

                      I would like to be able to Churn tests for x seconds/minutes and if it hasn't failed within that time stop churning.

                      This so after I have fixed a failing test, which I know fails in churn mode within x seconds, I don't want to run "Churn until it fails" but rather set a time period I know should be sufficient to reproduce it.

                      • Don't show "NCrunch Client Disabled" as an error in red

                        When I try to connect to an NCrunch grid node and get "NCrunch Client DIsabled" in red text, my first impulse is to troubleshoot. Is it a firewall problem? Bad password? Something else?

                        Then it clicks...*client*. I don't have NCrunch enabled in my current Visual Studio solution (or maybe I don't even have a solution loaded yet).

                        Well, obviously NCrunch won't send anything to the node if there's nothing to send. This isn't really an *error*, per se, so I don't think NCrunch should show the message in red in this case.

                        • Allow multiple simultaneous instances with different filters

                          It would be great if I could get multiple risk/progress bars pointed at different categories of tests. I would like to see (for instance) one risk/progress bar for acceptance, one for integration, and one for unit tests. It would be great if these were full parallel instances - like with their own configuration and everything. For instance, having acceptance tests farmed out to servers makes a lot of sense but all my unit tests should run locally because it takes longer to farm out a batch than to run it.

                          • Merge "custom environment variables" settings between shared/user settings.

                            Today the "custom environment variables" are "all or nothing" between the layers, e.g. if you have 5 settings in "shared settings" and want a new one (or modify one) locally, you need to duplicate all 5 in "my settings" to avoid the other ones being "unset" in the test runner.

                            I would like "my settings" to only override the ones I specify, so I can keep the 5 ones in "shared settings" being "active", and only add (or modify) 1 specific in "my settings".

                            • History of work session

                              I'd like to be able to see the history of my work session, meaning at the end of the day I'd like to see visually when my code was compiling, when my tests were all green.
                              The purpose is to be able to identify if I spend a lot of time in those states and try to reduce that time.
                              It would be useful for self-improvement or coaching.

                                  • Add "Title" field for simplified grid node management and identification

                                    As a NCrunch user, I would like to have an easy way to identify and manage my grid node while using distributing processing window.

                                    Currently, "server name" field is the only way to identify remote servers. With automated, disposable, DevOps-iified infrastructure, such identification is highly desiured. Out server names are random strings, such as this:

                                    MB-{RANDOM-8-CHARS}

                                    * MB-DMHJBDTDD
                                    * MB-THDRFBDF
                                    * MB-MKDHSVTD

                                    We don't really care or have control over this while scaling grid nodes infrastructure.

                                    It would be nice to have an additional field "Title" or "Display Title" for grid node so that we can have a human-readable name…

                                    • Toolbar button for "Run Selected Test(s) In Existing Process"

                                      I often have failing tests in my test window that I want to re-run in existing process (if there is one), e.g. when modifying database the tests are hitting.
                                      Today I must go via RMB->Advanced, rather than just clicking a toolbar button (similar what exists with "run test(s) in new process".

                                      • Extend line hit markers to include hit count and first hit order

                                        Two existing requests want hit count:

                                        https://ncrunch.uservoice.com/forums/245203-feature-requests/suggestions/6077791-show-number-of-lines-uniquely-covered-by-a-test

                                        , but I think that it would also be great if you could include a first hit order, then from a glance you could see the execution steps through the code (probably by thread in case multiple threads are used) and determine if line A was executed before line B

                                        • Goto TestCaseSourceAttribute's source from Tests window.

                                          I would be nice if it was possible to opt-in to change behavior of the context menu "Go to selected test" in that way:

                                          With NUnit, one can write:

                                          public static IEnumerable<TestCaseData> MyTestCaseSourceMethodName()
                                          {
                                          // return test cases...
                                          }

                                          [TestCaseSource("MyTestCaseSourceMethodName")]
                                          public void MyTest(int someArgument)
                                          {
                                          // do test...
                                          }

                                          The test case factory method can be an separate (static) class.
                                          In my case, I have a test with several dozens of test cases.

                                          When a test fails, I can easily go to the failing test implementation, but I cannot easily find the culprit test case.
