How to fake internal (Friend in VB) types
This guide will show you how to set up your project in order to be able to fake internal types in your tested system.
The assembly that generates the proxy instances must have access to
your internal types, therefore a
InternalsVisibleTo attribute must
be added to your tested assembly. Note that it is the assembly under
test, not your test-assembly that needs this attribute.
If your assembly is not signed with a strong name it's as easy as adding the equivalent of the following to your AssemblyInfo.cs/vb file:
For signed assemblies you have to specify the strong name of the proxy-generating assembly:
[assembly: InternalsVisibleTo("DynamicProxyGenAssembly2, PublicKey=0024000004800000940000000602000000240000525341310004000001000100c547cac37abd99c8db225ef2f6c8a3602f3b3606cc9891605d02baa56104f4cfc0734aa39b93bf7852f7d9266654753cc297e7d2edfe0bac1cdcf9f717241550e0a7b191195b7667bb4f64bcb8e2121380fd1d9d46ad2d92d2d15605093924cceaf74c4861eff62abf69b9291ed0a340e113be11e6a7d3113e92484cf7045cc7")]
