Hi forum

I'm using typemock

I read the docs on mocking static classes here:

I put together the test case below. But can't get it to work.

The test fails in the Isolate.WhenCalled line. So this is during setup of what to return when called. Why is is calling the method in this line?

Hope someone can help.

[TestMethod, Isolated]
public void TestMockStatic()
    Isolate.Fake.StaticMethods(typeof(Directory), Members.CallOriginal);
    Isolate.WhenCalled(() => Directory.EnumerateFiles(null)).WillReturn(new List<string> { "myconfigfile.xml" });


Best regards

The reason it fails is that Directory class belongs to mscorlib assembly and the support of this assembly is limited. We plan to support Directory class in the next version.

As a workaround you can use a wrapper class which will call Directory.EnumerateFiles and use it in production code and in tests.
