Rules For MSTest?

Nov 25, 2010 at 11:13 AM


I've recently implemented two custom rules in StyleCop to enforce some coding standards when writing unit tests.  The specific ones I've written so far are:


1) [TestMethod] decorated methods must have a [Description(string)] attribute.

2) Test methods with the [Description(string)] attribute must have a non-null or empty description.


A few other's I'm thinking about are enforcing the use of custom error messages in the Assert methods.


Seeming as StyleCop is a Microsoft tool and so is MSTest, is there any chance of rule for MSTest coding standards like the ones mentioned above being built into a future version?  Presumably if it was flexible enough, it could be easily extended for those using NUnit etc.
