Selenium C# How to Generate Extent Reports

Reports play a fundamental role when it comes to TESTING. Tester can now know the real-time reports of test suit execution. Reports made ease to know the ratio of Pass? Or Fail? Post-test suit execution and it is the only documentation to know about test execution results.

Everyone wish to see the detailed description of the test results. Don’t you? here is the solution for it. And, let us see how these reports can be achieved? in Selenium C# – NUnit framework automation testing.

To achieve detailed test execution results as HTML reports we need to rely on third party tool called => Extent Reports. These reports provide decent narration of test execution results and are depicted in PIE chart.

How to Reference Extent Reports in MS Visual Studio

Step 1) Project> Manage NuGet Packages

Step 2) In the next window

  1. Search for ExtentReports
  2. Select the search result
  3. Click Install

Step 3) Install selenium support from NuGet package

Step 3) Click ‘I Accept’

Step 4) Create a new C# class with the below code for Extent Reports.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;

namespace RnD
    public class TestDemo1
        public IWebDriver driver;

        public static ExtentTest test;
        public static ExtentReports extent;

        public void Initialize()
            driver = new ChromeDriver();

        public void ExtentStart()
            extent = new ExtentReports();
            var htmlreporter = new ExtentHtmlReporter(@"D:\ReportResults\Report" + DateTime.Now.ToString("_MMddyyyy_hhmmtt") + ".html");


        public void BrowserTest()
            test = null;
            test = extent.CreateTest("T001").Info("Login Test");

            test.Log(Status.Info, "Go to URL");

            //provide username
            //provide password

                WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1));
                wait.Until(ExpectedConditions.ElementIsVisible(By.XPath("//h3[contains(.,'WELCOME :)')]")));
                //Test Result
                test.Log(Status.Pass, "Test Pass");


            catch (Exception e)

                test.Log(Status.Fail, "Test Fail");


        public void closeBrowser()

        public void ExtentClose()

Post running test method, the test execution report looks as shown below:
