Ability to generate report with High Cyclomatic Complexity

Dec 12, 2014 at 1:40 PM
Is it possible to generate a report with methods with high Cyclomatic Complexity?

If not, could this feature be added?

Can you explain what you want to do?
Where should Cyclomatic Complexity come from?

Should ReportGenerator calculate this metric for each class?

Currently when the report is generated there are several metrics available, such as Cyclomatic Complexity, for a class when you click in to the class view. I am wondering simply if there is a method to generate these metrics for all classes and place them in a html page.

Ok, now I understand.

Yes this is possible by writing a custom report.
If you like I can provide you a sample plugin.

If you want to try it yourself start here:

I created a plugin for ReportGenerator that shows the Cyclomatic Complexity in the summary report for each class.

Please drop the DLL "bin/ReportGenerator.CyclomaticComplexityReport.dll" into your ReportGenerator directory.

Then use one of the following report types: CCHtml, CCHtmlSummary, CCTextSummary
E.g. ReportGenerator.exe -reporttypes:CCHTML -reports:MyOpenCoverReport.xml -tartgetdir:MyTargetDirectory

The archive also contains the source code of the plugin.

Hi daniel,

I tries using the report u ve posted below and i am unable to make it works :(
i always get:
"Unknown report type 'CCHtmlSummary'."
Using following commandLine
ReportGenerator.exe -reporttype:CCHtml -reports:_CodeCoverageResult.xml -targetdir:CCReport

I only dropped the dll into reportGenerator installation directory.
Could u tell me where i am wrong?

Probably just a typo, please try:
ReportGenerator.exe -reporttypes:CCHtml -reports:_CodeCoverageResult.xml -targetdir:CCReport

Please use this updated version:

The old plugin was only compatible with ReportGenerator versions <2.1
