Unit testing is a level of software testing that is used by developers to ensure that the implemented logic meets the requirements and behaves as expected. The following example uses the bUnit testing library for Blazor components to write comprehensive and stable unit test cases. It allows you to write test cases in C# or Razor syntax to verify outcomes with semantic HTML diffing and comparison logic.

Follow the steps below to test Blazor components.

  1. Create a simple Blazor Server/WebAssembly application.

  2. In Visual Studio 2019, right-click on the project solution and select the Add > New Project option.


  3. Select NUnit Test Project (.NET Core) and click Next button.

  4. Enter the project name and then click Create button. The created project will be displayed like the following.

    Created Project

  5. Open the NuGet manager for BlazorTest and search with the keyword bunit.web. The result will be displayed as seen in the following screenshot. Select bunit.web and install it.

  6. Right-click on BlazorTest project dependencies and add the project reference BlazorServerApp.

  7. Now, write a test case for a Razor component.

    1. Add a Razor component to your Blazor project.


      @page "/"
      <h3>Hello World</h3>
      <button class="btn btn-primary" @onclick="OnButtonClick">Ping Me</button>
      @if (IsVisible)
          <h5>Blazor component is clicked.</h5>
      @code {
          public bool IsVisible { get; set; }
          protected void OnButtonClick()
              IsVisible = true;

    2. Add the following test cases in your created test project file [UnitTest1.cs] to test the Blazor components.


      using NUnit.Framework;
      using Bunit;
      namespace TestProject1
          public class Tests
              public void Setup()
              public void Test1()
                  // Arrange
                  using var context = new Bunit.TestContext();
                  // Act
                  var cut = context.RenderComponent<BlazorServerApp.Pages.Index>();
                  // Assert
                  cut.Find("h5").MarkupMatches("<h5>Blazor component is clicked.</h5>");

    3. Then select the View > Test Explorer options in Visual Studio 2019 and run the test.

    4. Now you will see the list of test methods. The test run is successful, and the test case passes. You can also alter the test case if it fails.
