How to get currently running testcase name from testsuite in unittest

How can I get currently running testcase name, while in the testsuite collection there are 16 testcases. Tests are executed sequentially (in the order of adding test to the testSuite collection). When I add all tests to testSuite collection I can preview this object but how can I get currently executing test while tests are running. Maybe some variable holds this information?

example:

def suite():
testSuite= unittest.TestSuite()
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel__reservation_one_way_wizzair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_wizzair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_round_wizzair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_tair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_round_tair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_wizzair_credit_card'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_tair_credit_card'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_round_wizzair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_wizzair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_easyjet_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_ryanair_transfer'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_round_ryanair_credit_card'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_tair_duplicated'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_reservation_wrong_card_lowcost'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_tair_credit_card'))
testSuite.addTest(FlightsTestCases('test_sel_reservation_one_way_tair_wrong_credit_card'))

return testSuite

if __name__ == "__main__":
result = unittest.TextTestRunner(verbosity=2).run(suite())
sys.exit(not result.wasSuccessful())


Tests are executed using Selenium-RC framework.

Answer

unittest.TestCase.shortDescription()

Returns a description of the test, or None if no description has been provided. The default implementation of this method returns the first line of the test method’s docstring, if available, or None.

unittest.TestCase.id()

Return a string identifying the specific test case. This is usually the full name of the test method, including the module and class name.

Hopefully one of those is useful for your needs.
