  1. Display test output in text window (on button click)

    We use extensive logging information to analyze test failures.

    Currently the test output is only displayed in a split window of the tests window. This makes reading and analyzing long test outputs (especially with long lines) rather difficult.

    Therefore it would be nice to be able to display the test output with one button click in a separate (temporary) text window (similar to the Visual Studio test runner).

  2. Add a way (toolbar button ideally) to pin visible tests.

    Often I want to pin failing tests, then make a change so a large number pass, then I want to unpin the passing ones. I can unpin all, show only failing then would like to pin all visible.

  3. Attribute to exclude specific tests from automatically running

    I have several unit tests and integration tests within the same project. It would be great to have an attribute to exclude the integration tests from automatic runs. These tests would only be trigger-able manually

  4. Detect Microsoft.Net.Compilers references and automatically copy it to the workspace

    The Microsoft.Net.Compilers package allows projects to use a specific version of the compiler. When NCrunch attempts to build a project referencing that package it will fail by default with the error: "packages\Microsoft.Net.Compilers.2.4.0\build..\tools\csc.exe" is invalid." The current workaround is to add the tools directory for that package in the "Additional Files to Include" dialog.

    NCrunch should recognize that this package is unique and handle it automatically.

  5. Add window showing slowest lines of code

    The slow hotspot markers were super useful in me rewriting portions of test / application code to speed them up.

    It would be useful to be able to see a list of the slowest lines of code so attention can be given to refactoring them.

    Bonus points if this can be sorted based on total time under test, and also average time under test

  6. allow copy paste from exception details window

    It would be helpful to be able to be able to copy paste text from the exception details popup that displays when you click the X mark in the ncrunch gutter, e. g. stack trace, exception message, ...
    Right now, the test has to actually be executed in debug mode in the task runner to be able to copy text from the standard visual studio exception popup window

  7. Allow to rerun all tests matching current engine mode

    If I have 2 engine modes "Manual" and "All Automatically except HttpTest", I must toggle between the 2 in order to re-execute all tests.

    I would want a way to execute all tests matching the active engine mode, without having to toggle between "Manual" and the one I would want to be re-executed.

  8. Allow negative wildcard inclusions

    NCrunch allows you to add files and directory to include in the workspace using file globbing patterns. This is a great feature. However, this feature could be improved to also allow you to specify "negative inclusions", which would greatly benefit large solutions.

    My solution has 107 projects in it and one of the projects is a test project that runs some "solution-wide" tests using Roslyn Compiler Services. So this test project requires that the entire solution be in the workspace. However, what I don't need are all the {bin,obj}*. files, just the .cs and .csproj files.

    Currently, it's really difficult…

  9. Engine mode condition to allow distribute processing only of some tests

    Summary: I would like to specify an engine mode e.g. "Run db tests locally, all other distributed".
    Details: I would like to define grid nodes condition in the NCrunch engine mode settings. A first simple step would be to add setting similar to "Tests to execute on this machine", but under the Distributed Processing node. This way I can ensure no test with category [DbTest] is executed on grid nodes, but only on local (where I have the test db set up).

  10. Include Process Id in NCrunch Console Timeline report

    I would like to see when NCrunch starts up a new, or reuses existing, process in the NCrunch Console Timeline report, so I can find if long test run duration is due to process startup time or due to slow test run.

  11. Run same test with different configuration options (similar to NUnit's TestCase)

    Let's say I need to support 2 db providers (e.g. SqlServer and Sqlite) and I write the same (1) test for both but in the configuration file for the test project I define which db provider it should connect to.

    Currently the work process is something like:
    1) Run all tests with SqlServer provider setting set
    2) Change configuration file to use Sqlite provider.
    3) Re-run all tests to tests towards Sqlite provider.

    What I would like to have is something like:
    1) In a setting for a test project, define x number of "environment configurations" where I guess the…

  12. Option to hide NCrunch warnings per user

    I would like a solution setting so clicking "Click here to hide this warning" ends up in my .ncrunchproject.user instead of team shared .ncrunchproject file.

    Background:
    I have a lot of warnings in projects I am hiding, after validating they are valid to ignore. If I am not experienced with NCrunch I probably do not know what they mean, hide it and commit changes to .ncrunchproject files.
    The warnings also include grid nodes warnings, which might only be specific for my machine (if we e.g. do not share grid nodes for the team settings) and really makes no sense to…

  13. improve indicators for explicit and ignored tests

    I use Nunit but I guess there are similar concepts for other test frameworks. Currently any explicit or ignored tests have white icons in the editor and show as unexecuted in the tests window.

    I would like the option to change these indicators. In particular to change the colour/shape for the ignored/explicit tests icon in the editor.

    I would also like a filter for both explicit and ignored tests in the tests window. This would help me to track these tests down quickly

  14. Allow AssemblyVersion to be ignored in order to prevent errors in NCrunch

    If the AssemblyVersion attribute contains an asterisk (eg "1.0.0.*") then NCrunch cannot reliably build the solution.

    Currently, there is no way to prevent NCrunch from resolving the AssemblyVersion of each project and this causes problems with inconsistencies and NCrunch reporting build errors because MSBuild is expecting a different version of the assembly to the one provided.

    The current alternative to this involves polluting non-test project files with NCrunch-related hacks, which is not very clean.

    In order to resolve this issue, I suggest that a setting feature be added to NCrunch which allows AssemblyVersion resolution to be disabled.

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  18. 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?

  19. 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.
