Firstly, I searched the forum (and google) and found this. Sadly, none of the linked posts were helpful in solving my problem.

This is my test:

    public class GetExternalEndpointsActivityFixture
        public void Execute_WillReturnConfiguredExternalEndpoints()
            var mySection = Isolate.Fake.Instance<MyConfigSection>();
            var externalEndpointsCollection = Isolate.Fake.Instance<ExternalEndpointsCollection>();
            Isolate.WhenCalled(() => mySection.ExternalEndpoints = externalEndpointsCollection);
            var sectionName = "mySection";
            Isolate.WhenCalled(() => ConfigurationManager.GetSection(sectionName)).WillReturn(mySection); // <-- This fails

I've removed anything that isn't related directly to the problem. On the final line, which is marked with a comment, TypeMock complains:

TypeMock.TypeMockException :
*** No method calls found in recording block. Please check:
* Are you trying to fake a field instead of a property?
* Are you are trying to fake an unsupported mscorlib type? See supported types here:

This is a method, not a field, so I assume it isn't talking about that. Also, ConfigurationManager isn't part of the mscorlib, and I understand that what I am doing should be fully supported by TM.

The version I am using is

Hello Gary,

It seems that the cause of the problem is this line:

 Isolate.WhenCalled(() => mySection.ExternalEndpoints = externalEndpointsCollection);

What are you trying to set in this line?

I think it should look something like this:

Isolate.WhenCalled(() => mySection.ExternalEndpoints).WillReturn(externalEndpointsCollection);

Please try and let me know of it helps,

Hmmm... That worked, thank you. That's great, but the stack trace was pointing me to the line *after*, which is when I mock GetSection. Slightly misleading, but I realize that the prior call was nuts so that explains it.

Thanks again,
