Hi Tolisss,

I think what you're looking for is the CallBase method.
The example is taken from the documentation:


// C#
public class BaseClass
{
    public virtual int SomeMethod()
    {
        return 1;
    }
}

public class DerivedClass() : BaseClass
{
    public override int SomeMethod()
    {
        return base.SomeMethod() + 1;
    }
}

[Test]
public void Test()
{
    Mock mock = MockManager.Mock(typeof(DerivedClass))
    // mock only BaseClass.SomeMethod when called from a DerivedClass Type.
    mock.CallBase.ExpectAndReturn("SomeMethod", 100);
    DerivedClass d = new DerivedClass();
    Assert.AreEqual(101, d.SomeMethod());
}


Let me know if this helps,

Hi,

Unfortunately, we don't have such a feature. It is a good idea and a time saver, so we'll add it to our future feature list.

What can save you a bit of a pain is in the former example, use MockAll instead of Mock. This will mock the method to all instances of a derived class.

Mock mock = MockManager.MockAll(typeof(DerivedClass)) ;
