Is there a way to mock a system process standard out?

+2 votes
I would like to mock out the "Process" class used to call another exe. I have everything mocked out except for the stdout and stderrout. The output is piped to standard out  by hooking up a listener to outputDataReceived event. Is there any way to mock this so that the mock can send data to std out/raise that event?

Using VS2015 and typemock

Hi Alan,

Could you post a code example?

        public void Ctor()
            // ARRANGE

            var fakeProcess = Isolate.Fake.NextInstance<Process>();
            var outputHandle = Isolate.Fake.AllInstances<DataReceivedEventArgs>(Members.CallOriginal);
            // var outputHandle = Isolate.Fake.Instance<DataReceivedEventArgs>(Members.CallOriginal);
            Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fakeProcess.Start()).WillReturn(true);
            Isolate.WhenCalled(() => outputHandle.Data).WillReturn("test");
            var target = new SystemProcessController("cmd", "ver", stdOutHandler, null);

            // ACT

            Isolate.Invoke.Event(() => fakeProcess.OutputDataReceived += null, this, outputHandle);
