I think what David said before about spec views is take it with a grain
If you think you need to check the presence of every field go ahead.
When I spec out my views I only spec what needs to be there:
I won’t check for the presence of a form fields new.rhtml_spec.rb
I would place my fields in a partial called fields and I spec their
I would spec in my new.rhtml_spec.rb if the partial fields was rendered.
It may satisfy you just to have a spec that says:
it “should show form” do
Its all up to you how granular you want to get.
