Subject Writing unit tests for the powerpoint code
Date Thu, 12 May 2005 08:54:51 GMT
Hi All

I've been following the discussions on unit testing the formula code with 
interest. I'm hoping to write some unit tests shortly for the powerpoint 
code, but I'm not sure how best to go about it.

I can think of a few useful unit tests straight off. Things like ensuring 
that a file gets read in and is then written out the same, checking that 
records fine their children correctly, that sort of thing. I guess to do 
these I'll need to knock up a few test ppt files to include with the 
tests, but this shouldn't be too bad.

The main issue is that much of the hard work ATM is getting powerpoint to 
like apparently valid files. How best should I handle a test that spits 
out a file, but needs someone to copy it to windows, open up powerpoint, 
and see if it likes the file?
