Undefined method `add_assertion' for nil:NilClass


#1

Hello,

I tried to use assertion’s the first time in my code and had absolutely
now
success. I always get following error:

TEST FAILED.undefined method add_assertion' for nil:NilClass c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/test/unit/testcase.rb:115:inadd_assertion’
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/test/unit/assertions.rb:353:in _wrap_assertion' c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/test/unit/assertions.rb:38:inassert’
./utils.rb:1376:in `bpVerifyOnPage’

Here is a code snipe (verify is a string that is passed to a function):

The if statement works fine. The assert gives me trouble. Why? What is
wrong? What is the nil class?
I also tried assert(true), assert_equal(“1234”,“1234”) with the same
result

class BPUtils < Test::Unit::TestCase

def initialize
end

def
 .........some code
   begin
   assert($ie.contains_text( verify ) )
   puts("TEST PASSED. Found test string #{verify}")

  #if $ie.contains_text( verify ) then
         	  #   some
  	  #else
                  #   some code
        #end

   rescue  => e
puts("TEST FAILED." + e.message + "\n" + e.backtrace.join("\n"))


# hand exception over to main program to quit the program
      	raise QuitProgram, "quit program", caller
   end

end

The code you’re posted doesn’t compile, so it can’t be a real example
of what’s not working. Can you provide a real example?
