FakeItEasy provides a Roslyn analyzer to detect incorrect usages of the library that cannot be prevented by the API or the compiler but will typically result in bugs at runtime.


The analyzer works in Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 or later. Install one of these NuGet packages in each project that needs it:


The analyzer currently provides the following diagnostics:

Id Summary Code Fix? Description
FakeItEasy0001 Unused call specification no Triggered when you specify a call but don't configure or assert it, making it a no-op.
FakeItEasy0002 Non-virtual member configuration no Triggered when you try to configure a non-virtual member, which cannot be faked.
FakeItEasy0003 Argument constraint outside call spec no Triggered when you try to use an argument constraint outside of a call specification.
FakeItEasy0004 Argument constraint nullability mismatch yes Triggered when you use a non-nullable argument constraint for a nullable parameter. Calls where the argument is null won't be matched. If this is intentional, consider using A<T?>.That.IsNotNull() instead. If it's not, make the argument constraint nullable (A<T?>).
FakeItEasy0005 Argument constraint type mismatch yes Triggered when you use an argument constraint whose type doesn't match the parameter. No such calls can be matched.
FakeItEasy0006 Assertion uses legacy Repeated class yes Triggered when you make an assertion using the obsolete MustHaveHappened(Repeated) overload. Retired since version 6.0.0
