    Visual Studio: simple test case

    hi all,

    I am new to c++ and is trying to figure out how unit testing works in Visual Studio. The firt problem i have, is that my test class cannot find the class i want to instantiate.

    The program i am testing has a class called Cat_Population_Manager, and the test code is this:
    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    
    using namespace System;
    using namespace System::Text;
    using namespace System::Collections::Generic;
    using namespace	Microsoft::VisualStudio::TestTools::UnitTesting;
    
    namespace CatTesting
    {
    	[TestClass]
    	public ref class Cat_Test
    	{
    	public: 
    		[TestMethod]
    		void TestMethod1()
    		{
    			Cat_Population_Manager manager;
    			Assert.IsNotNull(manager);
    		}
    	};
    }
    And the error goes like this:
    1>------ Build started: Project: CatTesting, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
    1> Cat_Test.cpp
    1>Cat_Test.cpp(17): error C2065: 'Cat_Population_Manager' : undeclared identifier
    1>Cat_Test.cpp(17): error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'manager'
    1>Cat_Test.cpp(17): error C2065: 'manager' : undeclared identifier
    1>Cat_Test.cpp(18): error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '.'
    1>Cat_Test.cpp(18): error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '.'
    ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

    So Cat_Population_Manager is undeclared :-(
    Have tried for two days now, to make this work, but cant figure out how to declare it.

    Please help me...

    You need to include additional header, which contains Cat_Population_Manager definition.
    I never put signature, but I decided to make an exception.

    Do i simple write: #include "Cat_Population_Manager.h"
    because it will not except this. It makes a fatal error on that line.

    I cant understand it. What am i doing wrong??? Do i somehow have to tell VS where to find this file Cat_Population_Manager.h ?

    Put your header file in your project and then do
    Code:
    #include "your_Class_Name.h"
    I don't care if someone doesn't like me, i was not put on earth to entertain everyone.

    Visual Studio only contains tests for managed crap. But fear not, for there is a good native alternative. It's called Visual Assert. Try it.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Visual Assert was exactly what i needed. Thank you :-) Should be integrated in the original program and not an add-on.

    Should be, but isn't unfortunately due to Microsoft's thick-headedness. Can't be helped.
