Using Code Coverage to Determine How Much Code Is Being Tested

To determine what proportion of your project's code is actually being tested using unit tests, you can use the code coverage feature of Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management. To do this, first edit the run configuration to indicate the assembly that contains the code whose coverage you want to measure. Then run tests on that code. Detailed code coverage statistics appear in a window, and you can also see, line-by-line, which code has been tested.
