  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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…

  8. Add 'Capabilities' row to 'NCrunch Distributed Processing' window

    Please add 'Capabilities' row to 'NCrunch Distributed Processing' window, so that it would be possible to group, sort and identify server at a glance by existing capabilities.

  9. 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

  10. Add 'Clear search' button next to "Text to search on" in "NCrunch Tests" window

    It'd be useful to clean the search text in one click, similar to OOTB VS and other software experience.

    Right now we have to focus on the text within the search box, then double click and delete, or backspace a lot.

    Out of the box VS test window has that little button to clear the search, as well as other systems do.

    Matter of habit and efficiency while working with UI across various apps.

  11. 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.

  12. Shortened name should just be the test name when viewing with Tree Structure set to test

    Currently, when I want to view tests in flat list, I set the tree structure to "Test" but all the following columns display the same values

    Name, Shortened Name and Full Test Name !

    It would be helpful if the Shortened Name just displayed the test name rather than the full namespace.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Add 'Import/Export' NCrunch servers list from *.csv file

    So far it's is a bit time consuming and annoying to put up 20-30 servers in the server list.

    It'd be nice to have an ability to import server list from *.csv list.
    Server ip, port, password would be just about right.

    Same same goes with exporting - export current list into *.csv list, so that other people can use them as well, or so that we won't have to put them again and again.

  17. Enhance 'NCrunch Distributed Processin -> Server Tasks' window with additional information

    It would be nice to enhance 'NCrunch Distributed Processin -> Server Tasks' window adding more context.

    Right now it shows 'Processing Taks: 1 test(s) in XXXXX.Test', so would be nice to expand on that and show what are the tests being run right now with that task.

  18. Enable columns grouping on both "NCrunch Distributed Processing'" and "NCrunch Tests" window

    Please enable grouping on "NCrunch Distributed Processing'" and "NCrunch Tests" window grids so that it would be possible to have extra dimension on grouping servers by capabilities, or tests by "Excecution status".

    With dozens servers we have to keep up with the name convention, naming the servers in a specific way. Grouping by capabilities would be a better choice.

    Same same with tests - grouping by excecution status, 'failed, being run, passed' would be just awesome to have - similar to out of the box Visual Studio tests window.

  19. Optimize test status refresh between VS reloads on large amount of tests

    Once VS loads, NCrunch seems to refresh tests status.

    We noticed performance degradation on 500-1000+ tests.
    It takes about 10 minutes (1 test per second or somehting) to get the whole suit refreshed on the status.

    Always '500+' tests are queried for execution, 100 failing, no tests ignored. Hope that VS won't go down, as NCrunch will start that refresh process again from the very beginning.

    With current config we have ~1000 tests and 8 Azure VMs in the grid, 4CPU + 8G RAM.
