Test edit changing value

My question today is:

How do I write function test to simulate the user changing a value in an
edit form? Say, I have a form with a lookup to tech_id. When the user
selects a different tech_id, I want to verify that other fields have
also
changed ie( tech_name, tech_pay_rate, etc). This is what I have so far:

def test_changing_technician_id
get :edit, :id => 1
assert_response :success
assert_template ‘edit’
assert_not_nil assigns(:work_order_labor)
assert assigns(:work_order_labor).valid? # but how do I access the
:work_order_labor object?

verify that we have the correct name the technician id

this line doesn’t work

assert_equal 'Alfred', work_order_labor.technician_name

# change technician id to 2

post :update,

work_order_labor = WorkOrderLabor.find_by_id(1)

# verify that the technician_name is now ' Betty'
assert_equal 'Betty',   work_order_labor.technician_name

end

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Actually, you just did! If you want to keep it around, try changing
the line above to:
assert (work_order_labor = assigns(:work_order_labor)).valid?
(note the space after assert is important unless you put in the
parentheses for the assert((wor…).valid?)

# verify that the technician_name is now ' Betty'
assert_equal 'Betty',   work_order_labor.technician_name

end

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’d suggest that you test what the UI actually presents. Does the
user select a technician id or a name? You say to change the id, but
then you check for a name change.
