Controller code doesn't seem to be called within rspec test

i call current_user in the index-method, but the test fails and says:
“#User::CategoriesController:0xb7439484 expected :current_user with
(any args) once, but received it 0 times”

Why?

Try putting line 7 before line 6.

Please quote at least the relevant part of the previous email when you
respond. I can get the context if I’m looking at mail in a web browser.
Not
so much on my phone.

If you reverse lines 6 and 7 on http://pastie.org/663143, the example
should pass, so I’m a bit mystified. That said, why are you specifying
that current_user is called rather than something about the response? Or
is
this just an excerpt you’re using for demonstration?

yes ok, i’ll keep that in mind.

I changed this two lines. Please have a look at the updated pastie:

Because current_user IS obviously called by the controller.

This is no real test or controller, i would write or use. But i found
out that this is the root of all my problems with rspec. So i boiled it
down to this simple example.

Hi David,
[email protected]:$ gem list -l rspec

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

rspec (1.2.9)
rspec-rails (1.2.9)
[email protected]:$

I started a new test: Have a look at my new code:
http://pastie.org/663455

  1. The categories_controller is NOT called from the test!

  2. I created another example with a message_controller and associated
    tests. There, the controller IS called!

You can see that, because the puts statement produces output in 2), but
not in 1).

Could the reason for this be the fact, that User::CategoriesController
inherits from UserController??

Cheers,
Alexander

Book^^

Paste UserController as well. If it has a before_filter in there that
prevents index from executing, that could be the source of the
problem.

Pat

Its definitly that line that causes trouble:

class User::CategoriesController < UserController
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

end

If i change it to:

class User::CategoriesController < ActionController::Base
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

end

the tests pass as expected.

But why may i not inheret my CategoriesController from UserController?
Do i have to change my code to make it testable?

Cheers,
Alexander
