ClassCleanupAttribute Class

Identifies a method that contains code to be used after all the tests in the test class have run and to free resources obtained by the test class. This class cannot be inherited.

The ClassCleanupAttribute type exposes the following members.

Constructors

Name Description
Public method ClassCleanupAttribute Initializes a new instance of the ClassCleanupAttribute class.

Properties

Name Description
Public property TypeId When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Top

Methods

Name Description
Public method Equals Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttribute When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Match When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit Interface Implementations

Name Description
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetIDsOfNames Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetTypeInfo Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetTypeInfoCount Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#Invoke Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Remarks

The method marked with this attribute will be run after methods marked with the TestCleanupAttribute and before the method marked with AssemblyCleanupAttribute. Only one method in an class may be decorated with this attribute.

Important

This attribute should not be used on ASP.NET unit tests, that is, any test with [HostType("ASP.NET")] attribute. Because of the stateless nature of IIS and ASP.NET, a method decorated with this attribute might be called more than once per test run.

This attribute can be specified on a method. Only one instance of this attribute may be applied to a method.

For more information about how to use attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

Examples

The following examples demonstrate the initialization and clean-up attributes used to indicate which methods should be run by the test engine at different periods of the test.

The first code samples contain a class and method to test. To run this example, create a class library project and replace the code with the following example.

using System;

namespace SampleClassLib
{
    public class DivideClass
    {
        public static int DivideMethod(int denominator)
        {
            return (2 / denominator);
        }
    }
}
Imports System

Namespace SampleClassLib
    Public Class DivideClass
        Shared Function DivideMethod(ByVal denominator As Integer) As Integer
            Return 2 \ denominator
        End Function
    End Class
End Namespace

The following example contains code to test DivideMethod() found in the previous code examples. Create a test project and put the following code in a test class document. Add the appropriate references to the project. This code contains attributes that control the initialization and clean-up execution order for the method, class, and assembly.

In particular, note the ClassCleanup attribute on the ClassCleanup()method.
