Hamishwillee - Subedited/Reviewed

Hi Thomas

Excellent article, as I expected :-) I've subedted/reviewed it, please check I didn't break anything and that you are happy with the changes.

Most of the changes were minor layout issues - though I added a few more links to the SeeAlso. I changed the introduction because I found the focus on desktop a bit clunky - and the first paragraph was hard to read. I think it is better now. I don't mention code coverage there because it isn't supported. Code coverage section now has warning that it doesn't work at the top.

In terms of "room for improvement", some questions/thoughts:

  1. Is this only for C# or does the framework also support C++ on WP8? Worth stating somewhere
  2. Code coverage section - can we have a link to the uservoice post where people can vote if they care?
  3. Would be good to have link to your first use of Assert class.
  4. I prefer titles that don't specify the version something works on - because when WP9 comes along it needs to be changed. If it doesn't work on a particular version, make that clear using Notes or version categories. So perhaps: "How to use the Visual Studio Unit Testing Framework for Windows Phone apps" ?

Thanks so much for creating this. I think a really good addition to the wiki.

Influencer - Thanks

Hamish, you had so much to do to repair my incorrect English! Sorry.

Regarding code coverage, I was surprised that it isn't implemented when I tried it. That's why the beginning of the article didn't respect it. I submitted a new idea to uservoice today, I'll add the address in a moment.

I included WP8 in the title because it doesn't work for WP7.

There are some open points (at least for me): - I'll check VS2013 for code coverage but I have not much hope because I didn't read about a change. - I don't think there'll be a problem with C++ but I'll check. Please remind me if I forget it...

Hamishwillee - Thanks!

Hi Thomas

I renamed to remove the "8". People are supposed to work out versioning from the articlemetadata. If you thought it likely that this would only work for WP8 then it would make sense to have the WP8 in the title. I suspect however that it will work fine going forward :-)

Thanks very much for your other changes - look good.

Cheerio H

PS The English was mostly fine - mostly the sort of mistakes anyone will make if they are "too close" to the article - ie if you had come back to this after a few weeks you'd probably see the problems yourself. The article is really useful, and thats what counts.

Influencer - VS 2013 no improvement

I verified Code Coverage isn't implemented in VS2013.

So we have to continue voting for it on Uservoice.

Hamishwillee - Hey, I voted!

Thanks very much. It would seem to be a "no brainer" to add.
