Yesterday when I was running my Unit Test Cases from Visual Studio Test Explorer, I found that few of my test cases have been skipped by Visual Studio. I wondered why it happened. Then I did some googling & found that it a piece of code in my Unit Test case which was causing Visual Studio Test Explorer to display status as Skipped instead of Completed.
Yes, It was
Assert.Inconclusive() method that was causing the issue. Whenever test runner encounter this line of code in your unit test, it marks that unit test case as skipped & displays it with a warning triangle.
In this case, Test Runner actually is not skipping any of your tests cases but somehow misguiding you with its status. 😊
