Possible to run executable without .rxtst file?

Post by chowdhury_a » Wed May 23, 2012 3:52 pm

Hello,

Would it be possible to configure the build process so that the executable compiled can run without any dependency on an .rxtst file?

Thanks,
Chowdhury

Just to make it into an all-in-one package. Just a little less hassle.

Hi,

Okay, this is a point ;).
It is possible, you have to open the properties window of the test suite, right click on your *.rxtst file in the projects view and select "EmbeddedResource" as Build Action, then you have to input a Logical Name for it.
After this you have to copy following code into your Program.cs class:
var reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(typeof(Program).Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("The Logical Name of the RxTst file"));
var tstString = reader.ReadToEnd();
error = TestSuiteRunner.Run(typeof(Program), Environment.CommandLine, tstString);
This should make the trick.
