Code Coverage by Project File

For the Simple Code example, the Code Coverage window percentages are not difficult to see given the coverage in the Editor window. For more complex applications (such as the Demo Code), the breakdown of coverage by file and function provides useful information for improving tests and coverage.

To provide targeted code coverage for specific file(s) in the project, you can change the file build properties.

1. Right-click on a project file and select Properties from the drop-down menu. The File Properties dialog will open.


2. In this dialog, check Override Build Options. Now other build option selections will appear. Click on Code Coverage.


3. Change the Code Coverage instrumentation option to Disable and then click OK.


4. The file will now show in bold. Run and halt the project; then, examine the Code Coverage window. The file will no longer be listed here. Open the file in the Editor to see that Code Coverage highlighting is not available.
