See more: NUnit reflection
I'm trying to run NUNIT tests through Reflection in C#. I load the assemble and get the methods, then I want to filter out for methods only assigned the NUnit.FrameWork.TestAttribute.
 
I have tried this and it doesn't work:
 
 var testTypes = from t in ltAssm.GetTypes()
                        let attributes = t.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(NUnit.Framework.TestFixtureAttribute), true)
                        where attributes != null && attributes.Length > 0
                        orderby t.Name
                        select t;
        foreach (var type in testTypes)
        {
            //get test method in class.
            var testMethods = from m in type.GetMethods()
                              let attributes = m.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(NUnit.Framework.TestAttribute), true)
                              where attributes != null && attributes.Length > 0
                              orderby m.Name
                              select m;
            foreach (var method in testMethods)
            {
                methods.Add(method);
            }
        }
no methods picked up even though there are 50.
 
Even running this simple line doesn't pick anything up:
 
var xx = classMethods[11].GetCustomAttributes(typeof(NUnit.Framework.TestAttribute), false);
I also tried instantiating the type and still nothing.
 
Those same methods have another custom attribute which I created and assigned to them, if I attempt to retrieve the methods using that Attrib, then they are retrieved.
 
Anyone know of something special that needs to be done for Reflection to recognize Nunit's TestAttribute?

You did not show the code sample to be tested. How can we know that you correctly applied the test attributes to the test classes and test methods?
