I tried 2 methods of mocking out static calls on SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges on Sharepoint 2010:

1. Isolate.WhenCalled(() => SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() => { })).DoInstead((ctx) => Console.WriteLine("called"));

2. var mock = MockManager.Mock(typeof(SPSecurity), Constructor.Mocked);
mock.MockMethodCalled += new MockMethodCalledEventHandler(mock_MockMethodCalled);

both of them fail with error:

Test 'ConsoleApplication1.Tests.test1' failed: System.TypeInitializationException : The type initializer for 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSecurity' threw an exception.
----> TypeMock.TypeMockException :
*** Faking behavior on struct Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSecurity+SPOperationEntry is not supported in the following cases:
1. Faking behavior on more than one struct of the same type.
2. Faking behavior on more than one method on the same struct.

My Question: Is it possible to fake this call? And how?

I run the example you posted and got the same results.
This a bug :evil:
We'll update you once it is fixed.

I found a workaround for the problem:
Simply fake the static constructor of SPSecurity class before you fake any methods on it.
So the test should be:
Isolate.WhenCalled(() => SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() => { })).DoInstead((ctx) => Console.WriteLine("called"));

Please let me know if works for you.

Now problem occurs with code below:

Isolate.WhenCalled(() => SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() => { })).DoInstead((ctx) => ((SPSecurity.CodeToRunElevated)ctx.Parameters[0])());
var fakeSite = Isolate.Fake.Instance<SPSite>(Members.ReturnRecursiveFakes);

SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() => Console.WriteLine("nice"));
SPSite site = new SPSite(""); //still nice
SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() => site = new SPSite("")); //not nice, original SP call

Apparently now when we execute code inside mocked out RunWithElevatedPrivilieges no mocks are present and original calls to SP take place.

The behavior you see is due to a known limitation of DoInstead:
Fakes can not work inside DoInstead since the callback is invoked inside the Isolator and fakes can not be created inside the Isolator.

Can you please try to explain what are you trying to do in the test?
We'll try to help you out with it.

Everywhere in my production code i have following statements:

()=> new SPSite(...).OpenWeb()... //etc.

Could you please provide me with info how to use TypeMock to write unit tests for such code (so it can be run on build server without sharepoint installed)?

I need to mock out call to RunWithElevatedPrivileges and i need mocks for Sharepint objects inside.

Any news on how to make this work?

Sorry about taking this long to get back to you. We've been trying to work around the mentioned limitation, and finally managed to implement a fix that will allow fakes in DoInstead() in most scenarios. I will send it to you offline through our support email.

You mentioned that there is a solution to the problem can you please post it?

As everything works until the code under test tries to create the SPSite then I get the following error:

System.InvalidOperationException was unhandled by user code

Message=This operation can be performed only on a computer that is joined to a server farm by users who have permissions in SQL Server to read from the configuration database. To connect this server to the server farm, use the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard, located on the Start menu in Administrative Tools.

I assume that inside the delegate TypeMock cannot create the fakes?

Is there a way to do this properly?

What version are you using?
The latest version of the Isolator (6.0.6) has this ability.

Please try it and let me know if solves the problem.

Try the following code. It has been tested and it seems to be working fine.

Paste this function in your Test Fixture:

public static void SecuritycMockMockMethodCalled(object sender, MockMethodCallEventArgs e)
            if (e.CalledMethodName.Equals("RunWithElevatedPrivileges"))
                var del = (SPSecurity.CodeToRunElevated)e.SentArguments[0];
                var res = del.BeginInvoke(null, null);

And then paste these lines in your tests:

var securityMock = MockManager.Mock(typeof(SPSecurity));
            securityMock.MockMethodCalled += new MockMethodCalledEventHandler(SecuritycMockMockMethodCalled);

Let me know if you need further help.
