Visual Studio 2017 Live Unit Tests


One of the best features in Visual Studio 2017 is Live Unit Tests. It allows you to see the lines of code that are covered by unit tests and the result of running those unit tests. Live unit tests also update the results of the unit tests and the lines on the code on the modification of the code without manually running the unit tests. By click on the red X icon on the left, you can see which unit test(s) are failing and you can quickly jump to it to fix it. The – icon indicates that the line is not covered by any unit tests. Live unit test supports MSTest, NUnit, and XUnit using C# and VB.NET.

Visual Studio 2017 Gets a New Start Page


 

One of the new features in Visual Studio 2017 is the new Start Page. As shown below, it looks spacious and everything is at your finger tip. Notice on the right-hand side, you can collapse the news feed if you are not interested in that. On the left-hand side, the recent solutions is grouped by This month Last month and Older. To the right of that, you can open a new project from VSTS, or from a local folder without using the menus. Finally, you can create a new project by using one of the recent project templates or search for a project template without using the dialog.
