Logged diagnostics are diagnostics that you supply to the testing framework with a call to the log (TestCase) or log (Fixture) method.

Copy Semantics

Handle. To learn how handle classes affect copy operations, see Copying Objects.


  • PDF test reports are generated based on your system locale and the font families installed on your machine. When generating a report with a non-English locale, unless your machine has the Noto Sans CJK font families installed, the report might have pound sign characters (#) in place of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters.
