Quick Blurb: Test Tools Toolbar in Visual Studio and Useless Icons

Test IconsLet’s play a little game. To the left of this text are the five central icons from the Test Tools Toolbar in Visual Studio. Their commands are, in an unordered manner: Test List Editor, Test Runs, Test View, Code Coverage Results and Test Results. Connect the icon to the appropriate command, without checking Visual Studio.

The purpose of this game? To show that whenever you don’t think about your icons enough, they’re meaningless and therefore useless. There may be a certain logic behind this set of icons, but since it has eluded me for the few seconds I tried to understand it, it’s as if it wasn’t there in the first place.
