I am looking for something like

MyProperty myProperty = fake.Property;
Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fake.Property).ReturnRecursiveFake<T>();

where the T can be of the type MyProperty, or a derived class of MyProperty.

This feature will allow me to control fake.Property better, because sometimes I want to return recursive fakes for the derived class type, not the base class type.

Is it possible to implement this feature?

Hi Soon Hui,

This is indeed a useful feature but until we implement it you can use the following instead:
var fakeDerived = Isolate.Fake.Instance<DerivedClass>();

Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fake.Property).WillReturn(fakeDerived);

or for a one liner:
Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fake.Property).WillReturn(Isolate.Fake.Instance<T>());

or using direct properties
fake.Property = Isolate.Fake.Instance<T>();
