HighBall Part Duex (#5) Oh Dear, Tests!

Ok, I got this far, marked up some xaml, and got the boot strappers boot strapping some views view their respective presenters within the modules.  Yeah!

But really, what happens if I move forward now?  Without tests I get myself into trouble.  I could just move forward, but I?d have no regression, no ability to cleanly refactor, and no ability to know if I broke things that already work!  So I?m heading into the world of unit tests and am going to figure out how to make future endeavors more TDD (or TAD ? Test After Development?).  Either way, this thing needs some tests before I bluntly slam into the next steps.

First off, make sure you have the appropriate equipment for the job.  The Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight ? February 2009 link has the goods you?ll need.  The specific links are as follows;

Install the SDK, then put those assemblies somewhere handy.  I nabbed a bit of reference from Justin Angel at this juncture.  He has a great write up on getting these parts setup with the Silverlight Unit Testing Framework, Rhinomocks, Unity, and ReSharper ? exactly along the lines of what I wanted.  After a quick perusal of his blog entry I tore through a quick setup and first tests.

 

?first tests.

?here?s the assemblies:

D:\Machine Load\Visual Studio 2008\All the Parts for UI Unit Tests w Silverlight and WPF\White-bin-11-9-2008

D:\Machine Load\Visual Studio 2008\All the Parts for UI Unit Tests w Silverlight and WPF\Unit test framework\Unit test framework
