The goal is to run some tests given some data in those Xml files.
How would you easily load a given Xml file into an XmlDoc within the unit test methods?
Current state is:
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
string xmlFile = "4.xml";
string dir = System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() + @"\Msgs\"
//dir is then the value of the current exe's path, which is
//d:\sourcecode\myproject\TestResults\myComputer 2009-10-08 16_07_45\Out
//we actually need:
doc.Load( dir + fileName); //should really use System.IO.Path.Combine()!
In the unit test project add a post-build event that copies the XML file to the output directory. Then, you can use your original code to get the XML file.
The post build event will look like something like this:
copy $(SolutionDir)file.xml $(ProjectDir)$(OutDir)file.xml
You may also need this to add to your path:
