    I am using JustMock with visual studio 2015 (just mock Q3 2015: 2015.3.929.5).

    I am getting method not found error when I mocked private method and asserting on private method call as following

    public class Foo
        private void DoPrivate()
            //Do something


    Following is test method

    public void ShouldInvokeNonPublicMember()
        Foo foo = new Foo();

        bool called = false;

        // Arrange
        Mock.NonPublic.Arrange(foo, "DoPrivate").DoInstead(() => called = true);

        // Act

        // Assert

    Here assert is always failing since DoInstead get not get triggered and method DoPrivate does not get called.

    I also tried with Mock.NonPublic.Arrange(foo, "DoPrivate").DoNothing().MustBeCalled(); After asserting this throws error as "DoPrivate()" method not found.


    Please suggest.

    We couldn't reproduce the issue with JustMock 2015.3.929.5. Please note that your Foo type is missing DoPublic. I added a public DoPublic method that calls DoPrivate (assuming that is what your are trying to do) and the test passes on our side.

    Could you please send us a sample project that demonstrates the problem? Please, send us the exact error message you are getting on your side as well.
