I am a newbie so these questions may be real basic. I am using the community edition so I cannot use the natural typemocks.

I am trying to mock the class File and another class StreamReader.


Mock fMock = MockManager.Mock( typeof( File ), Constructor.StaticNotMocked );
MockObject srMock = MockManager.MockObject( typeof( StreamReader ), Constructor.Mocked, typeof( string ) );
//Mock srMock = MockManager.Mock( typeof( StreamReader ), Constructor.Mocked );
fMock.ExpectAndReturn( "OpenText", srMock.MockedInstance, typeof( string ) );

I have tried to use both the MockManager.Mock and MockManager.MockObject with StreamReader and I keep getting the error I listed in the subject line when I try to create the srMock object. What am I doing wrong?

Also, when should I use MockManager.Mock and MockManager.MockObject; what is the difference?

I would very much like to be able to mock System.IO.File, System.IO.FileInfo, System.IO.Directory, System.IO.DirectoryInfo, and System.Threading.Task classes

This currently is a huge block to me because of the nature of the code I am trying to mock, which completely relies upon the before mentioned classes.

We're extending our support in mscorlib types, most of the types you requested will be available in our next version :D

Could you guys please add support for the System.Environment class? Looking to unit test some code that deals with environment variables.
