Test writing pauses unexpectedly
The combination of a Windows terminal and a mouse event problem can occasionally cause test writing to be paused, until the Enter key is pressed. This is a problem with Windows, but Diffblue can suggest the following workarounds:
- Use the
Enterkey as required.
QuickEdit Modein the Windows terminal. To do this, right click on the Title bar, choose Properties, select the Options tab, uncheck QuickEdit Mode, and click OK.
- Redirect the tests to be written to a file instead, by using the command
dcover create > output.txt(where
output.txtis the file to which you would like the tests to be written). Using
--batchis recommended so that the output is readable. Please note: Pressing the
Enterkey will always ensure that your test writing continues.
