Although there are pros and cons for testing private method, does Isolator have some helper API for calling original private methods directly from test?

I know I can use CallOriginal with WhenCalled but I have no way of calling the method itself on the test.

Hi soguy,

Isolator doesn't supply an API to drive private methods, but you can use one of the following:
- Visual Studio private accessors
- Reflection to obtain the private method by name and invoke it
- MbUnit private accessors

Thanks, will try. Just wondered if TypeMock has some helper for that...
