Faking SPContext–for testing only…

Keith Dahlby has a good post on creating a fake SPContext.  Here’s the link and the code

NOTE: This is not production safe code – use at own risk…


public static SPContext FakeSPContext(SPWeb contextWeb) 
{ // Ensure HttpContext.Current if (HttpContext.Current null) { HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest("", web.Url, ""); HttpContext.Current = new HttpContext(request, new HttpResponse(TextWriter.Null)); }

// SPContext is based on SPControl.GetContextWeb(), which looks here if(HttpContext.Current.Items["HttpHandlerSPWeb"] null) HttpContext.Current.Items["HttpHandlerSPWeb"] = web;

return SPContext.Current; }
