NotBe

ShouldNotBe is the inverse of ShouldBe.

Objects

ShouldNotBe works on all types and compares using .Equals.

var theSimpsonsCat = new Cat { Name = "Santas little helper" };
theSimpsonsCat.Name.ShouldNotBe("Santas little helper");

DateTime(Offset)

ShouldNotBe DateTime overloads are similar to the numeric overloads and also support tolerances.

var date = new DateTime(2000, 6, 1);
date.ShouldNotBe(new DateTime(2000, 6, 1, 1, 0, 1), TimeSpan.FromHours(1.5));

Exception

date
should not be within
01:30:00
of
2000-06-01T01:00:01.0000000
but was
2000-06-01T00:00:00.0000000

TimeSpan

TimeSpan also has tolerance overloads

var timeSpan = TimeSpan.FromHours(1);
timeSpan.ShouldNotBe(timeSpan.Add(TimeSpan.FromHours(1.1d)), TimeSpan.FromHours(1.5d));

Exception

timeSpan
should not be within
01:30:00
of
02:06:00
