Method: Minitest::Mock#expect

Defined in:
lib/minitest/mock.rb

#expect(name, retval, args = [], **kwargs, &blk) ⇒ Object

Expect that method name is called, optionally with args (and kwargs or a blk, and returns retval.

@mock.expect(:meaning_of_life, 42)
@mock.meaning_of_life # => 42

@mock.expect(:do_something_with, true, [some_obj, true])
@mock.do_something_with(some_obj, true) # => true

@mock.expect(:do_something_else, true) do |a1, a2|
  a1 == "buggs" && a2 == :bunny
end

args is compared to the expected args using case equality (ie, the '===' operator), allowing for less specific expectations.

@mock.expect(:uses_any_string, true, [String])
@mock.uses_any_string("foo") # => true
@mock.verify  # => true

@mock.expect(:uses_one_string, true, ["foo"])
@mock.uses_one_string("bar") # => raises MockExpectationError

If a method will be called multiple times, specify a new expect for each one. They will be used in the order you define them.

@mock.expect(:ordinal_increment, 'first')
@mock.expect(:ordinal_increment, 'second')

@mock.ordinal_increment # => 'first'
@mock.ordinal_increment # => 'second'
@mock.ordinal_increment # => raises MockExpectationError "No more expects available for :ordinal_increment"
