Unit test explorer with single test is confusing.

I have mapped CTRLT to run a single test. When I'm in the test method, I hit CTRLT to pull up the test explorer. I see the graphical tree including tests I've run in the passed. I'd like my previous test runs to go away when I rerun a single method. At that point, I'm only concerned with the single test method I'm currently on.

Also, I see the preview window, but I'd like an option for text-only output. When running a single test method as I do all day in my TDD process, I code a single test and run it. At that point, I only need text output from NUnit. I don't need the graphical display. If there was an option to just put the NUnit output in my Output window of Visual Studio, I'd be happy.

Either way, I only want to focus on one test at a time when I run from a test method.

Best regards,

Hello Jeffrey,

I think it is a good thing to do in a future release, but not for 3.0 for
sure - release is almost happened :)
I don't think it would be Output window, because you as well may want to
run a fixture and thus we need space for all tests. So it could be quick
dismissable window displaying fixture setup, test setup, test run, test teardown
and fixture teardown with any relevant output.
I think we also should make output window navigable by keyboard, but that's
a bit different story.

For now, you can use ReSharper's CloseRecentTool command (Ctrl-Shift-F4)
to quickly close last ReSharper's tool window, which would be Unit Test Session
in this case.

Sincerely,
