Instance Method Details

#assert_difference(expressions, difference = 1, message = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

Test numeric difference between the return value of an expression as a result of what is evaluated in the yielded block.

assert_difference 'Article.count' do
  post :create, :article => {...}
end

An arbitrary expression is passed in and evaluated.

assert_difference 'assigns(:article).comments(:reload).size' do
  post :create, :comment => {...}
end

An arbitrary positive or negative difference can be specified. The default is +1.

assert_difference 'Article.count', -1 do
  post :delete, :id => ...
end

An array of expressions can also be passed in and evaluated.

assert_difference [ 'Article.count', 'Post.count' ], +2 do
  post :create, :article => {...}
end

A error message can be specified.

assert_difference 'Article.count', -1, "An Article should be destroyed" do
  post :delete, :id => ...
end

  expression_evaluations.each_with_index do |expression, i|
    assert_equal original_values[i] + difference, expression.call, message
  end
end

#assert_no_difference(expressions, message = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

Assertion that the numeric result of evaluating an expression is not changed before and after invoking the passed in block.

assert_no_difference 'Article.count' do
  post :create, :article => invalid_attributes
end

A error message can be specified.

assert_no_difference 'Article.count', "An Article should not be destroyed" do
  post :create, :article => invalid_attributes
end
