    I have to verify multiple calls with different arguments to a method and MustBeCalled does the job.
    Some pieces are missing, though.

    For example, let's say I want to verify that the "Prompt(string text)" method is called just twice with the following two texts only: "hello", "world".

    Mock.Arrange(() => foo.Prompt("hello")).DoNothing().MustBeCalled();
    Mock.Arrange(() => foo.Prompt("world")).DoNothing().MustBeCalled(); 

    How do I know that it wasn't called a third time with any other argument?


    Also, I wanted to add that it's very annoying and especially time consuming not having any information about which MustBeCalled expectation failed.

    Hi Edoardo,
    Thanks again for contacting us.

    The idea behind MusBeCalled is asserting something that is already invoked. There can be numerous possibilities how a particular method can be called but the task of the assertion is to make sure that all your expectations are executed as you have set / arranged them.

    However, you can write the test in the following way that should make sure that for any argument other than the ones for which the expectations are set will fail the test.
    var foo = Mock.Create<Foo>();
    Mock.Arrange(() => foo.Prompt("hello")).DoNothing().InSequence().MustBeCalled();
    Mock.Arrange(() => foo.Prompt("world")).DoNothing().InSequence().MustBeCalled();
    Mock.Arrange(() => foo.Prompt(Arg.AnyString)).DoNothing().InSequence().OccursNever();

    Secondly, you are right about the exception that is been thrown for MustBeCalled, it should be more verbose on what call it failed for. I am including a task for it and hopefully it will be resolved in the next build and thanks for pointing that out.

    You can further the follow the task here:
