How to extend common helper methods to view specs?

Hi, there,

I have some methods which I have written as helpers.
They are in spec/support/controller_macros.rb (yes, I will change the
name soon).

The 2 methods, login_user and login_admin_user works in the
controller specs BUT fail to work in the view specs when I call them
in the view specs.

---------- spec/spec_helper.rb start --------------------------

This file is copied to spec/ when you run 'rails generate

rspec:install’
ENV[“RAILS_ENV”] ||= ‘test’
require File.expand_path("…/…/config/environment", FILE)
require ‘rspec/rails’
require ‘webrat’

Requires supporting ruby files with custom matchers and macros, etc,

in spec/support/ and its subdirectories.

Dir[Rails.root.join(“spec/support/**/*.rb”)].each {|f| require f}

RSpec.configure do |config|

config.include Devise::TestHelpers, :type => :controller
config.extend ControllerMacros, :type => :view
config.extend ControllerMacros, :type => :controller

config.before(:suite) do
DatabaseCleaner.strategy = :transaction
DatabaseCleaner.clean_with(:truncation)
end

config.before(:each) do
DatabaseCleaner.start
end

config.after(:each) do
DatabaseCleaner.clean
end

end

---------- spec/spec_helper.rb end --------------------------

i am already extending it to the view (ie. ‘config.extend
ControllerMacros, :type => :controller’).

What am I missing?

Thank you

Gordon

What are you trying to do in the methods? You can probably just stub
what you need:
