I have an index template that contains a tabulated list of database items,

displayed via a “show” action. In Cucumber I know how to test that the show
template is rendered when one of those links is clicked using webrat’s
“click_link” method and response.should render_template.

This is a Webrat question - not a Cucumber question.

What I’m not sure about is whether it’s possible to specify that a
particular link gets clicked, since there are multiple links on the page
with the same text. I’d like to be able to test that the particular database

Use the #clicks_link_within method in Webrat.

Only if you know the answer :slight_smile:

Thanks Aslak. You’ve made me realize I have been looking at an old
version of the documentation, here:
http://www.brynary.com/uploads/webrat/rdoc/index.html. So I didn’t
realize there was a click_links_within method. Google has just led me
here: http://webrat.rubyforge.org/.

Please make sure you view http://github.com/brynary/webrat/tree/master
for the latest code as things change much faster they they get pushed
up to RubyForge.

Thanks, although note that that also leads back to the old
documentation.

The webrat code is very simple and readable IMO, even for a ruby
newbie like me. When I’m wondering how to do something, I usually just
open the source.

I think there’s also a #within call which takes a block, so you might
be able to do something like.

within :div_for_object_123 do
clicks_link ‘Follow Me’
end

This is based on a conversation I heard over the other side of the
desk, so take it with a pinch of salt :wink:

cheers,
Matt
