adMob in test mode?

Can I use adMob in test mode?

I used

                <google:BannerAd.TestDeviceIDs>
                    <sys:String>......</sys:String>
                </google:BannerAd.TestDeviceIDs>

in my .xaml for adMob control, however can't figure out how use this in AdRotator's ad settings .xml

    <AdCultureDescriptor CultureName="default">
          <Probabilities Probability="100" AdType="AdMob" AppID="" />
    </AdCultureDescriptor>

So, is it possible to use adRotator to display adMob's test ads?

Thanks!

ALthough we do support test mode in some of the controls AdMob isn't one of them, however Google have no issue it seems in using proper ads during testing, most likely do to the sheer number of impressions you have to deliver to make a difference.

Also note though that Google are dropping AdMob fairly soon in favour of AdSense, were evaluating the use of AdSense in V2 but they have much stricter requirements to be qualified as a developer.
