NUnit Test Attribute Execution Order

by

I went looking to find the order in which NUnit executes the test attributes/events.  Oddly enough, I couldn’t find it.  (Maybe I’m not googling it properly.)


Anyway, here’s the NUnit attribute event order:



  1. TestFixtureSetUp
  2. SetUp
  3. Test
  4. TearDown
  5. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 for each test that’s being run in this fixture.
  6. TestFixtureTearDown

  1. Well, TunaBomber, that’s the theory. But in reality, the impact on productivity of that is just too much of a cost for keeping a purist approach. I just tired of having to add massive set-up and tear-down to each test in order to compensate for a lack of support for ordered execution in NUnit GUI. So went searching for a way around… At least I learned the diff between SetUp and TestFixtureSetUp – thanks Ben.
