Instance Method Details

#assert_bad_value(object_or_klass, attribute, value, error_message_to_expect = nil) ⇒ Object

Asserts that an Active Record model invalidates the passed value by making sure the error_message_to_expect is contained within the list of errors for that attribute.

assert_bad_value(User.new, :email, "invalid")
assert_bad_value(User.new, :ssn, "123", /length/)

If a class is passed as the first argument, a new object will be instantiated before the assertion. If an instance variable exists with the same name as the class (underscored), that object will be used instead.

assert_bad_value(User, :email, "invalid")

product = Product.new(:tangible => true)
assert_bad_value(product, :price, "0")

#assert_good_value(object_or_klass, attribute, value, error_message_to_avoid = nil) ⇒ Object

Asserts that an Active Record model validates with the passed value by making sure the error_message_to_avoid is not contained within the list of errors for that attribute.

assert_good_value(User.new, :email, "[email protected]")
assert_good_value(User.new, :ssn, "123456789", /length/)

If a class is passed as the first argument, a new object will be instantiated before the assertion. If an instance variable exists with the same name as the class (underscored), that object will be used instead.

assert_good_value(User, :email, "[email protected]")

product = Product.new(:tangible => false)
assert_good_value(product, :price, "0")
