Test Properties

Each test in the project exposes the properties of an existing file in the solution as well as Test Studio Dev related properties which concerns the test execution.

Properties of File in the Solution

Selecting the Properties option from the right click context menu in the Solution explorer opens the Properties pane for the test as an existing file in the current solution.

Test Properties as a File in Solution

The Visual Studio Property pane displays the selected file properties. These are standard for any file in the project/solution.

The test properties which concern the test execution can be accessed by clicking the Properties Button in the test ribbon.
