Share Your “Dash”, Win Some Cash – #NCoverDash

ncover-dash-for-cashOver the past several months, many of our customers have shared amazing stories and use cases for how code coverage and NCover fit into their efforts to deliver amazing .NET applications.  We think NCover is great (of course, we are a little biased), but you continue to blow us away with how far you have taken NCover!

So, to celebrate your code coverage prowess, we are asking you to share either a screenshot of your NCover dashboard, an NCover trend graph or any other NCover related screenshot you are proud of with #NCoverDash on either Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

For each NCover screenshot or NCover related image you share via any of those networks during the month of February, we will enter you for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card.  Share one image across all three social networks, get three entries.  Share three images across all three social networks, get nine entires.  The more you share with #NCoverDash, the more chances you have to win.

It doesn’t matter whether you an existing customer or a trial user, whether you share results from a personal project or a commercial project (you can crop the image so you don’t share your secret sauce) or whether you have achieved 95% branch coverage or…well, something a lot less than that.  Just share your “dash,” and you’ll be entered for a chance to win some cash.

Good luck and keep that .NET code covered!

Video Tutorial on Code Coverage Visualization with NCover Bolt

NCover-Code-Coverage-Visualization-With-NCover-Bolt

Without having to switch between programs while you test, NCover Bolt saves you time and effort by providing you with both a test runner and code coverage visualization software all within the same window. Bolt runs as a multi-platform test runner with the ability to work in multiple frameworks simultaneously. With its versatility and simple use, Bolt is the only test running program you will ever need.

Bolt also provides you with the ability to see your coverage and edit your code all from the same window. Having code coverage software integrated with the editor makes for a simple and easy way to test your code and correct mistakes.

Find more on using NCover Bolt at http://www.ncover.com/support/docs/bolt/bolt-quick-start.


NCover Bolt, a multi-platform test runner with code coverage, gives you not only the ability to run your unit tests in Visual Studio, but also to see coverage visualization from the VS IDE.   NCover Bolt allows users to: Run both MSTest and NUnit tests. View code coverage metrics from within Visual Studio. Drill down into the most recent test run to explore coverage from the module level all the way down to lines of individual code.   Find more on using NCover Bolt at http://www.ncover.com/support/docs/bolt/bolt-quick-start   Visit us online at http://www.ncover.com or start a free NCover trial at http://www.ncover.com/trial NCover Bolt, a multi-platform test runner, gives you the ability to both run your unit tests and also see coverage visualization from within Visual Studio. The ability to see your coverage results from within the development environment reduces time spent finding uncovered code and makes it easier for developers to test the most important portions of code more thoroughly. To see the full range of coverage information provided by Bolt, we recommend selecting the following three options under the NCover menu on your toolbar: Enable Coverage, Highlight Code, and Show Branch Coverage Visualization. Any combination of these options may also be deselected depending upon your usage requirements. Once you run a test and collect coverage, the results will appear in the source code view window in the form of code highlighting. code highlighting tells you which lines of code were run and which lines were missed. Lines of code highlighted in green were successfully covered, while lines displayed in red remain untested. Within the same window, you will also see Bolt’s branch coverage visualization. Branch coverage visualization represents the path the code followed when it was executed. By hovering over each sequence, you can see the possible path or paths of your code. Each green ball represents a covered sequence point, and a red diamond represents an uncovered sequence point. On the right side of the window, you will see the uncovered code margin, allowing you to quickly identify and go to untested portions of your code. Another way to view coverage information is with the Bolt Code Coverage Window. To access this window, click on the NCover menu item and select Bolt Code Coverage under the View submenu. A new tab will appear beside the Bolt Tests containing the Branch Coverage, Sequence Coverage, and several other metrics in a tree-view. You can browse the tree-view and click to expand your covered modules, displaying the coverage metrics all the way down to the individual test. Bolt retains the most recent test results, giving you the ability to drill down into your results to find possible bugs within your code. By drilling down all the way to the Method, you can quickly and easily determine what portion of code is causing the problem. When Bolt and Desktop are used in conjunction with one another, a full history of tests can be viewed within the interactive reporting interface of NCover Desktop.

Video Tutorial on Running Tests with NCover Bolt Test Runner

NCover-Bolt-Running-Tests-With-BoltNCover has recently released a new test runner named Bolt.  This video will walk you through the various ways to run tests and gives you a quick tour of the interface.  Running tests with Bolt will allow you to test using multiple frameworks and also allow you to view your coverage from the most recent test within the editor window.   Understanding a new program is the first step in making it work for you to accurately test your code.  Once your code has been tested with coverage, you can quickly and easily view your coverage results from within the editor.

Find more on using NCover Bolt at http://www.ncover.com/support/docs/bolt/bolt-quick-start.


NCover Bolt provides several options for running your unit tests.   NCover Bolt enables you to:   Run tests from within Visual Studio in the Bolt Tests window. Run tests from within Visual Studio in the Code Editor window. Run tests and see results from the command line.   Find more on using NCover Bolt at http://www.ncover.com/support/docs/bolt/bolt-quick-start Visit us online at http://www.ncover.com or start a free NCover trial at http://www.ncover.com/trial The NCover Bolt multi-platform test runner gives you the ability to run tests from within Visual Studio or from the command line. To run tests from within Visual Studio, open the NCover menu and select either Run Tests or Debug Tests. By default, your selection will be applied to to all of the assemblies in your project. To run only a subset of the assemblies, select the assemblies you want to test and then select the Run Tests or Debug Tests option, either from the NCover menu or from the Bolt Run Tests or Debug Tests icons at the top of the Bolt Tests window. In addition, you may run a single assembly from within the Bolt Test window by right clicking the Bolt icon located next to the desired assembly. The NCover Bolt test runner can also be executed from within the Code Editor window by clicking on the Bolt icon next to the desired test and either running or debugging that particular test. It is important to note that when you choose to run a single test or a subset of tests, only the affected code will be profiled and all other code will be displayed as uncovered. As your development process requires, you may also elect at any time to either disable the Bolt Test Runner or prevent the Bolt Test Runner from collecting code coverage. NCover Bolt also provides you with the ability to run tests from the Windows command line. The command line format for Bolt is executed by the Bolt.exe. When Bolt is called from the command line, a prompt will appear presenting all of the arguments that Bolt accepts. Arguments include filters, the location where you would like to save the results, a working directory, and a parameter to manually specify which version of the test runner agent you would like to use. Running from the command line will also allow you to see the results of your tests printed to the command prompt. The number of tests failed, ignored, and passed will all be printed, along with the testing, setup and teardown times.
