Run Tests in Editor
When you open a function-based test file in the MATLAB® Editor or Live Editor, or when you open a class-based test file in the Editor, you can interactively run all tests in the file or run the test at your cursor location. This example shows how to run tests while working in the Editor or Live Editor.
In your current folder, create a function-based test file
function tests = sampleTest tests = functiontests(localfunctions); end function testA(testCase) verifyEqual(testCase,2+3,5) end function testB(testCase) verifyGreaterThan(testCase,42,13) end function testC(testCase) verifySubstring(testCase,"Hello World!","llo") end
When you save the test file, the Run section in the Editor (or Live Editor) tab changes and lets you run the tests in the file.
Click the Run Tests icon. MATLAB displays the command it uses to run the tests in the Command Window, and runs all the tests in the file.
Running sampleTest ... Done sampleTest __________ ans = 1×3 TestResult array with properties: Name Passed Failed Incomplete Duration Details Totals: 3 Passed, 0 Failed, 0 Incomplete. 0.45951 seconds testing time.
Now, place your cursor in the
testB function and click
Run Current Test. MATLAB runs
Running sampleTest . Done sampleTest __________ ans = TestResult with properties: Name: 'sampleTest/testB' Passed: 1 Failed: 0 Incomplete: 0 Duration: 0.0037 Details: [1×1 struct] Totals: 1 Passed, 0 Failed, 0 Incomplete. 0.0036537 seconds testing time.
In addition to running tests, you can customize the test run by using the test options under Run Tests. To access the full list of test options, click the down arrow under Run Tests, and then click Customize Test Run. MATLAB uses the selected test options whether you run all the tests in a file or just the test at your cursor location. When you select a test option, the selection persists for the duration of your current MATLAB session.
