This should always be the base class for all coded Web performance tests that are written in languages that do not support Visual C# iterator-like syntax. To write a Web performance test in Visual C#, see WebTest for an example. To run a test outside Visual Studio 2005 Team System, see Running automated tests from the command line for more information.

This class must be inherited; it cannot be instantiated.

Notes to Inheritors

When you inherit from ThreadedWebTest, you must override Run.


The following is a coded Web performance test called MyCodedWebTest that inherits from ThreadedWebTest. The second request posts the form information that is contained in three controls back to the server.

Option Strict Off
Option Explicit On
