Data Driven Test Reporting Issue

I have a project that is using MSTest to perform data driven tests. At the conclusion of my build, TeamCity reports that I have successfully run 22 tests. But in the full log MSTest shows that it has run 242 tests. This makes sense because MSTest treats each row of data in a data driven test as a separate test. Is it possible to get TeamCity to report each test run instead of each physical test?

Could you please attach an .trx file. What VS version was it?

Sorry, I should have given you more details.

I am using Visual Studio 2008 SP1. My Team City Project is setup with the sln2008 build runner. I am using the standard path to MSTest and running a single test assembly.

I have attached the trx file.

It appears that TeamCity is counting <UnitTestResult> entries and checking the  outcome attribute. This works for most tests, but data driven tests include a <Counters> element and an <InnerResults> element. If the <Counters> element is present, you should be using the attributes.

How would you like those tests to be shown? I mean the names of that data driven tests.
I'll create a patch for your issue.

MSTest differentiates each test with "dataRowInfo", which is a number from 0 to the number of data rows.

If we have a data driven test called MyTest with three rows of data, the tests would be MyTest 0, MyTest 1, MyTest 2.

Could we add a column to results with data driven tests called dataRowInfo?

Sorry for the delay. The question is still relevant? If yes please leave a comment or create a separate thread.

Kind regards,

What was the outcome of this?  I believe I am having the same issue as the original post.

Please let me know when you get a chance.  Thanks! :)
