    • 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.

          • Inline run configuration

            I'm a long time NCrunch user but I feel the feedback loop has worsened significantly over time,

            An incremental compile on my solution takes ~1s but I often have to wait between 20-40s for ncunch to do the same. (I have no clue if this is because of workspace copying or what).

            What I really want from NCrunch is an inline run mode that runs directly on my build output everytime I build (which I do very often)

            But currently I can not instruct NCrunch to run directly on my build output or only try to run (build) after a…

              • Enable real time output of the test being run in "NCrunch Tests" window

                It would be nice to have real-time or at least "refreshed" every 5-10 seconds "Test output" console in NCrunch Tests" window.

                Right now the output is provided once test is completed, but it would be useful to have some kind of "refresh every N seconds" option for integration tests. They might take minutes to run, and sometimes it is extremely useful to see output in real time - either to kill the test or to see what's going on.

                • Support the new Visual Studio Code IDE

                  Support the new Visual Studio Code editor.
                  While it doesn't yet provide extensibility for utils like NCrunch, it is apparently planned for upcoming development, so I wanted to get this on the NCrunch radar.

                  • Assign license key to developer name in mylicenses page

                    I'd like to be able to assign a company seat license to a developer's name. Currently under the https://www.ncrunch.net/User/MyLicenses page I can't figure out which key is being used by which developer.

                    As my team grows and as developers come and go this becomes a more time consuming process to manage. I'd rather not do this via another spreasheet.

                    • inherit colors from environment

                      I don't use Windows default colour scheme. Instead, I reduce the amount of light hitting my eyes by using a black background and green text (very retro, ha ha). Some NCrunch windows / dialogs set their background color to grey, which makes green text difficult to read.

                      So, please, don't override my local settings, just allow your windows / dialogs to use whatever colours I have already set up for myself.

                      Thanks!

                      • Be able to Bind a key (F5) to run debugger in the current test cursor located in

                        It would great to use the muscle memory of pressing F5 to debug code, by allowing the functionality of "Right click on a unit test and select Debug starting test in new task runner process" to happen based on where the cursor is currently located.

                        • Separate test output to separate dockable window

                          (Similar to https://ncrunch.uservoice.com/forums/245203-feature-requests/suggestions/5689966-display-test-output-in-text-window-on-button-clic )

                          I sometimes work from home with 1 monitor and at work with 3 monitors. I also tend to like having test output in a less "important" place than the tests themselves.
                          With vstudio2015 the split setting (bottom or right) is not restored via the windows layout feature.
                          if test output was a separate window I can choose to place/dock it wherever I like (and also restore/save its position).

                          • Provide a better filtering on 'Tests being excecuted right now' in 'NCrunch tests' window

                            With large amount of tests, say 500-1000, it is impossible to see what is going on right now - which tests are being executed.

                            NCrunch has a specific icon on that, but all such tests are spread across the 'NCrunch tests' window, so we have to scroll here and there to see where NCrunch is up to - which tests are being run right now.

                            It might not b an issue for unit tests, but integration tests take about 1-2 minutes each to execute, so sometimes it is not clear what's is going on.

                            Would be nice to have either…

                            • Improve hover-over hints on tests indicators/icons in 'NCrunch Tests' window

                              Oh boy, we still have absolutely no idea what do some icons mean. Really.

                              All these alerts icons on the test/assembly row, then green or red clocks, then green question marks. That IS so much puzzling. Seems we lived in VS space too much, at least it was simple - not run, run and pass/failed :)

                              Please add hints on hover-over providing an explanation and suggestion on what is going on with the current test or whole test set.

                                • Let tests run continuously parallel but randomized - to find concurrency issues

                                  I had the problem that my test setup created some files and sometimes test would interfere because they moved some files. In general i would like to find out if there are concurrency issues in my code or in my tests. I know its not a safe way to find them, but if I could say "these 3 tests should run in parallel for a while" would ease debugging if I already know there is an issue

                                  • Better exception handing so that VS won't be crushed

                                    Please improve stability/exception handling, provide optional "Submit crash report" window so that we can feedback the exception and other details, and isolate NCrunch from the VS.

                                    We have been seeing unstable behaviour caused by NCrunch while intensively running 1000+ tests across dozens server nodes, all of them cause VS restarted.

                                    That's extremely annoying giving the fact that after the VS crash NCrunch "tries" to pick up tests from the very beginning. We can't complete the whole test suite having crashed somewhere along the way.

                                    • Mark tests using TestCaseSource as failed if an error in the method providing the TestCaseData fails

                                      Currently an NUnit test that uses a TestCaseSource attribute to provide the data will not show up at all if the method providing the TestCaseSource data has an exception.

                                      I often end up resorting to Resharper to run the offending test to find out what is going on.

                                      It would be nice if the tests that are failing because their TestCaseSource is not running can show up as failed tests the same way that they do in Resharper.

                                      • Add 'Run tests on servers with capability(es)' ability

                                        So far we have two options to run tests:

                                        1) Run all/selected/whatever tests on all servers, so they would be run with per-capability match
                                        2) Run tests on a particular server

                                        That is not convenient once we want to run a test or set of the tests on a server with a particular capability.

                                        For instance, we'd like to run a test or a test suit against server with "WinXp" or "Win7" or "Win8".

                                        The things is that we can do that, but we either need to manually set the server, or we have to set the attributes on the…

                                        • Show/Hide previously passing, but now out of date tests

                                          When using the engine mode of "Run impacted tests only, other tests manually", the Test Window provides a green question mark indicator next to tests that were previously passing, but are now out of date (at least that's what we believe the green question mark indicates).

                                          We would like to request an enhancement to the Test Window to show/hide the green question mark tests; this would be an icon next to the current four indicators that will toggle the visible tests: Passing (green check mark), Failing (red X), UnExecuted (blue question mark with an eyeball), and Ignored (yellowish circle with…
