Testing page.alert

Hello,

Testing newbie here. I have some AJAX code that would render an error
message back to the host using page.alert. How would I test that?
Personally I use RSpec, but Test::Unit is also fine. Thanks.

If some error arises

render :update do |page|
page.alert(“Error message!”)
end

Here’s how you can do it with rspec:

describe “some action” do
it “should alert with Error message!” do
page = mock(“page”)
page.should_receive(:alert).with(“Error message!”)
controller.expect_render(:update).and_yield(page)
get :some_action
end
end

Here’s how I think (haven’t tried it, but should work) you can do it
with test/unit and mocha:

def test_alert_with_error_messaged
page = mock()
page.expects(:alert).with(“Error message!”)
@controller.expects(:update).yields(page)
get :some_action
end

Cheers,
David
