Passing get request parameters in an rspec test

Hello

Please forgive my noobness to rspec. I have a controller method that
inspects the params[:id] object and renders a view that depends on the
existence of that :id.

I want to ensure that the view is rendered in the controller rspec test.
The rspec code is:

describe “GET ‘enrollments’” do
it “should be successful” do
get ‘enrollments’
response.should be_success
end
end

The ‘enrollments’ controller method inspects the params object, pulls
out
the :id and uses it in a few queries to populate a couple of instance
variables.

My question is “How do I pass in the params[:id] parameter to the get
‘enrollments’ line?”

Thanks in advance

Matt

We’re all noobs at some point in regard to something. No forgiveness

get ‘enrollments’, {:id => ‘1’)

One thing I’ve learned is to pay attention to the data type you use in
the params hash when you use get|post|put|delete. The params hash in a
real application is filled with strings, so yours should be too.

Thanks in advance

Peace,

get ‘enrollments’, {:id => ‘1’)

And, of course, that should be a curly at the end!

get ‘enrollments’, {:id => ‘1’}

Phillip - Yes, that worked, thanks a million!
