Quick Start

Given you have a system under test and a dependency:

public class SystemUnderTest
  public SystemUnderTest(IDependency dependency)

public interface IDependency

When writing your unit test, use the Autofac.Extras.Moq.AutoMock class to instantiate the system under test. Doing this will automatically inject a mock dependency into the constructor for you. At the time you create the AutoMock factory, you can specify default mock behavior:

  • AutoMock.GetLoose() - creates automatic mocks using loose mocking behavior.
  • AutoMock.GetStrict() - creates automatic mocks using strict mocking behavior.
  • AutoMock.GetFromRepository(repo) - creates mocks based on an existing configured repository.
public void Test()
  using (var mock = AutoMock.GetLoose())
    // The AutoMock class will inject a mock IDependency
    // into the SystemUnderTest constructor
    var sut = mock.Create<SystemUnderTest>();
