Allow use of DataTestMethod / DataRow in all unit testing projects
As I understand it these attributes are limited to use in WinRT/Metro and now with update 2, Windows Phone 8. It would be very helpful to be able to use them in all test projects e.g.
[DataRow(" ", "a")]
public void TestMathos1(string value1, string value2)
Assert.AreEqual(value1 + value2, string.Concat(value1, value2));
NUnit has TestCases commented
I have recently left MSTest over this. I am astounded this feature was never added except to, gasp, Windows Store apps??! Oh really.
Alfredo Chavez commented
It's just idiotic to think that MSTest remains stalled in the stone age while all the other (cool) guys are moving forward in bounds and leaps. Just add the feature or make XUnit part of VS for one and drop MSTest entirely.
Federico Soto commented
Add these feature to all the Unit Test project. I need it to write Data Driven test cases.
John Theisen commented
And 5 more months have gone by and still this feature 1) has no reason for having been implemented only for windows store apps 2) missed the market completely by focusing on a segment that needs it less than the other segments 3) and it is YEARS behind the other major frameworks. People, let's get with this! You are forcing devs/tests to cut and paste tests and leads to reduced agility.
Jocke Ek commented
Please include the feature for all application types, it's very useful when writing tests. Should be included in a unit test framework.
Kevin Aung commented
This would help a lot. I really like mstest but thinking about switching to NUnit because they have this feature.

We ended up switching to nunit. There are far too many features missing from mstest to bother persevering with it.
People have been requesting this feature for years.
Its a bit of a slap in the face to see it in Wart/Metro and not have it for real .Net projects.
Kishore Raavi commented
Yes I too agree with this
Joshua DeLong commented
I agree. You can reference the library in your test project now manually but the Test Explorer will not find the test methods. The library on depends on mscorlib, System, and System.Core so there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to use it in other test projects.
