This is a question of technique. To what degree do projects generally test page/report layouts? Do you just check to see if the expected data is present or do you also check that the layout is presentable?

We use humans to check layout and presentation since it's visual and not something that can be determined correct by a program in a reasonably maintainable way (at least IMO). We use scenarios and specs to ensure that the application is providing the right display of information from the system, and the proper form/inputs that people should be able to access through the app. We find the combination gives us a good flexibility to change the UI while being confident that the app is still doing everything it should be, > -- > Posted via http://www.ruby-forum.com/. > _______________________________________________ > rspec-users mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/rspec-users > -- Zach Dennis http://www.continuousthinking.com http://www.mutuallyhuman.com
