    • License server - Show client version

      On the license management page, show the client version for each line. This way I know who should update their clients.

      • Make the test timeout depends on RepeatAttribute (NUnit)

        The default timeout is 60 sec. One can change that value but it would be nice if NCrunch could adapt timeout based on the number of repetitions of the same test (in respect of RepeatAttribute of NUnit).
        Today, if I specify a timeout of 120 sec, that timeout is applied no matter how much times the test is repeated in the same tests session.

        • User custom performance metrics (displayed with performance metrics)

          My prime use case would be counting and measuring SQL queries (would make easier to monitor impact of changes by other developpers).

          Hovering the green/red marker next to a line would display the count and total time for each custom metric.

          This could be implemented with a simple attribute like NCrunch.MetricAttribute("SQL") that would be added on functions and/or with a IDisposable scope (using(NCrunch.Metric("SQL")).

          They would be noop when not compiled by NCrunch.

          • Filter to show running tests.

            Hi, I'd like to have a new filter option along side the "show passing/failing/unexecuted/ignored tests" buttons which would allow me to "show running tests". My use case would be to have show enabled for failing, unexecuted, and running tests -- so I can more clearly see what NCrunch is up to at any given moment.

            • enable debug on ignored tests

              Often I get to the end of a TDD run and create a total integration test. This test necessarily hits dev database and http endpoints. I want to carefully control the execution of this test, not have it run continually. Ergo, I ignore it. Right clicking on the now "ignored" tests, I see the options to debug, but they don't do anything.

              It would be perfect if I could step into and debug ignored tests.

              • Show coverage on LOC even when tests are excluded

                We have a lot of integration tests that interact with the database, and as such, we flag these to be excluded from NCrunch using an attribute/customized engine mode.

                While that is great, I would still like to be notified that the actual LOC are covered by something. Right now, I get the white dot/"no coverage"

                It would be nice to still mark these lines as covered by a test - even if its excluded. Mark it with some other color, and let me drill into the tests in the test suite.

                • Make pending test colors configurable

                  I find finished tests (solid color) difficult to distinguish from pending tests (semi-translucent). I suggest making this configurable, either by allowing the user to specify the alpha for pending tests, or by providing completely separate color choices for pending test states.

                  • Allow the NCrunch Tests window to nest/group by Class

                    i have my tests setup like this:

                    public class CalculatorTests{
                    public class AddMethod{
                    [Fact]
                    public void DoesAdd() { /**/ }
                    }
                    }

                    I'd like to be able to see the tests grouped by class so I can ignore (for example) all the 'AddMethod' tests. I appreciate I could do this by categories, but it'd be a nice addition.

                    • Update CodeLens test stats

                      In Visual Studio 2015, Code Lens shows me 0 passing tests, while NCrunch shows me all green markers.
                      Maybe it is possible for NCrunch to update the CodeLens test statistics.

                      • Hotkey to skip sliding build window

                        I have a sliding build window turned on as my tests can be fairly intensive to run. Sometimes, however, I'm done making a change and don't want to wait for the sliding window to activate. It'd be nice to have a hotkey to bypass the sliding window on demand.

                        I take advantage of all the other fantastic hotkeys around running tests immediately, so this isn't a very big deal. But it'd be nice to have. :)

                          • ternary coverage

                            Increase resolution of coverage so that a ternary expression shows code coverage if one branch is not covered. (Otherwise my team is going to make me always use 8-line ifs instead of 1-line ternaries just so we can see code coverage completely :'( )

                            • Hide non test projects in the NCrunch Tests window

                              I typically leave the 'Show Passing Tests' filter enabled. However, when it is enabled, non-test projects also show up in the list with a check next to them. It would be good if the non-test projects would not show up at all in the tests view since there are no tests in them.

                              • Allow projects to marked as no parallel execution

                                We have an integration test that has a setup task that get runs once before the tests execute to create and teardown the integration test database.

                                The problem with the way NCrunch executes is we get multiple instances of the database continually created (they have GUIDs in the name so they don't clash) but ideally I'd just like to be able to mark the integration test project to run all the tests in a single thread so the NUnit SetupFixture doesn't get run multiple times ... or if the are going to run in multiple threads to stop the reentrance…

                                • Add button to enable/disable word wrap in test output window

                                  The test output window currently wraps text which can make it difficult to read stack traces. An option to disable word wrap would be helpful, especially if it could be toggled via a button on the window itself.

                                    • Color the console output

                                      I really like the idea of separation of console outputs by test. But, the problem is, that with more logs the output becomes cluttered. There is an excellent plugin for Visual Studio called VSColorOuput that allows to specify regular expressions to color the console output in the output window.

                                      Would you consider:
                                      1. Add similar coloring preferences to console output
                                      or
                                      2. Output console to the output window, as requested in another feature request?

                                      • Turn off rosyln analyzers during NCrunch Build

                                        Inspired by post http://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postsm7582_Build-fails-with-custom-analyzers.aspx

                                        Rosyln analyzers in Visual studio 2015 get run during NCrunch Builds. Would it speed up compilation if analyzers were turned off in NCrunch?

                                        I cant think of a reason why it is necessary - Visual studio gives you real time feedback in the editor and on manual compiles. I wouldn't watch the NCrunch output window for build warnings

                                        • Native support for xUnit Collection attributes

                                          Currently xUnit Collection attributes are not prohibiting nCrunch from running tests inside one collection in parallel. So developers require to decorate old tests with nCrunch-related attributes for those test not to be executed in parallel.
