Coverage Data Files

A space-delimited list of coverage files to merge and report on. Accepts wildcards.

Usage:
ncover.reporting.exe coverage\10.2.09*.xml

Append Trend to a File

Appends trend data from the merged coverage files to the specified output path and filename. The file will be created if it does not exist. If this parameter is specified and LoadTrendPath is not, then this file will provide trend data for the reports. Otherwise, the file specified by LoadTrendPath will provide trend data for the reports. If both CoverageTrendPath and LoadTrendPath are specified, then the trend data from the merged coverage files will be appended to the path in CoverageTrendPath before the trend data for the reports is loaded from LoadTrendPath. (If CoverageTrendPath and LoadTrendPath are the same full path and filename, then LoadTrendPath)

Usage:
//at "C:\data\trends\myproject.trend"

Build Id

Specify the build ID for the MergedCoverageDataFileName. Defaults to the build ID of the first coverage data file loaded.

Usage:
//bi myproject_3.0.12.3721

Hide

Specify what elements to hide (if any) in the report. These elements will still exist and affect coverage percentages, but they will not appear.

Usage:
//hi HideUnvisited

Possible Values:
None (default)
HideUnvisited
HideFullyCovered
HideThresholdCovered

Ignore Failed Builds

By default, reports with trend data will include trend data from builds that had failing tests. However, you can make the reports act as if that data doesn't exist by using this argument or setting it to true. Using this argument will make the reports only use trend data from builds that had no failing tests.

Usage:
//ifb 

Load Trend from a File

Rather than creating new trends from the coverage data, this parameter loads trend data for the report from the specified output path and filename, and uses the trend data in the given file without appending trend data from the merged coverage files.

Usage:
//lt "C:\data\trends\myproject.trend"

Output Path

Specify the default output path for all generated reports. Defaults to the current directory.
NOTE: this parameter is interpreted as a directory for the 'FullCoverageReport' and as a file for every other report.

Usage:
//op "D:\reports\html\fullcoverage10.2.09"

Output Report

The Reports option allows you to create multiple reports using the same filters, satisfactory thresholds, and sort order, giving you multiple views of the same data.

Usage:
//or Report Type[:File Format][:Output Path] [params (name=value, name=value)]

'Report Type' is the type of report to create.
For a list of possible values, see the Report Types Reference.

'File Format' specifies the file type (XML or HTML) to ouput the report file(s) in.
Possible Values are "Xml" or "Html".

'Output Path' is where the report will be created.
If no output path is specified, then the value of OutputPath will be used.

'Params ( ... )' is a construct that accepts a list of names or name-value pairs separated by commas.
For an exhaustive explanation of parameters, examples, a reference of the Report Types that support parameters, and the parameters they support, go to the NCover Reporting Parameters Reference.

Project Name

Set this value to control the project name that appears at the top of every generated report. By default, the project name is taken from the first coverage file loaded.

Usage:
//p "my very long project name"

Sort By

Specifies the sorting to apply to the reports. Default is no sorting.

Usage:
//so VisitCountDescending

Permitted values:
Name
ClassLine
CoveragePercentageAscending
CoveragePercentageDescending
UnvisitedSequencePointsAscending
UnvisitedSequencePointsDescending
VisitCountAscending
VisitCountDescending
FunctionCoverageAscending
FunctionCoverageDescending

Top Uncovered to Report

By default, NCover.Reporting only reports the top 10 most uncovered items in the "Top Uncovered" reports. Set this value to control how many are shown.

Usage:
//tu 50

Xslt Override Path

You may provide the path to the Xslt file you wish to use for the report.

Usage:
//xslt mycustomfile.xslt
