Test discovery without test running?

Is there any way to populate the list of individual tests in Wing's 'Testing' window without executing all the tests in a module? I would like to be able to select an individual test to run without first having to execute all the tests. Something similar to pytest --collect-only.

If you open the test code in the editor and place the caret in the test, using Run Tests at Cursor in the Testing menu should run that test. There are times where this won't help, for example if tests are generated at runtime, but it covers most real world cases.

Are you referring to 'Run Tests' in the right click menu? I wasn't aware of that feature. When I try to use it however I get

ERROR: Not found: path/to/test/module.py::test_name|0|

Note the |0| after the test name.

No, I meant the item in the Testing menu in the menu bar. The context menu item should also work, but appears to be broken in Wing 8 due to changes in the underlying code analysis system. We'll try to fix that soon... thanks for pointing out the problem!

Ah, I see it now. The testing menu item works as you describe. Thanks!

If possible, It would also be nice if we could populate tests in the 'Testing' pane without running them. I'm a big fan of that view.

I think this may only be possible with some testing frameworks, but I agree it would be nice to have.
