Methods

_addTestCaseToTestTree

(
  • parentNode
  • testCase
)
private static

Adds a test case to the test tree as a child of the specified node.

Parameters:

  • parentNode TestNode

    The node to add the test case to as a child.

  • testCase Test.TestCase

    The test case to add.

_addTestSuiteToTestTree

(
  • parentNode
  • testSuite
)
private static

Adds a test suite to the test tree as a child of the specified node.

Parameters:

  • parentNode TestNode

    The node to add the test suite to as a child.

  • testSuite Test.TestSuite

    The test suite to add.

_buildTestTree

() private static

Builds the test tree based on items in the master suite. The tree is a hierarchical representation of the test suites, test cases, and test functions. The resulting tree is stored in _root and the pointer _cur is set to the root initially.

_execNonTestMethod

(
  • node
  • methodName
  • allowAsync
)
Boolean private

Executes a non-test method (init, setUp, tearDown, destroy) and traps an errors. If an error occurs, an error event is fired.

Parameters:

  • node Object

    The test node in the testing tree.

  • methodName String

    The name of the method to execute.

  • allowAsync Boolean

    Determines if the method can be called asynchronously.

Returns:

Boolean:

True if an async method was called, false if not.

_handleError

(
  • error
)
private static

Handles an error as if it occurred within the currently executing test. This is for mock methods that may be called asynchronously and therefore out of the scope of the TestRunner. Previously, this error would bubble up to the browser. Now, this method is used to tell TestRunner about the error. This should never be called by anyplace other than the Mock object.

Parameters:

  • error Error

    The error object.

_handleTestObjectComplete

(
  • node
)
private

Handles the completion of a test object's tests. Tallies test results from one level up to the next.

Parameters:

  • node TestNode

    The TestNode representing the test object.

_next

() TestNode private static

Retrieves the next node in the test tree.

Returns:

TestNode:

The next node in the test tree or null if the end is reached.

_run

(
  • testObject
)
Object private static

Runs a test case or test suite, returning the results.

Parameters:

  • testObject Test.TestCase | YUITest.TestSuite

    The test case or test suite to run.

Returns:

Object:

Results of the execution with properties passed, failed, and total.

_runTest

(
  • node
)
private static

Runs a single test based on the data provided in the node.

Parameters:

  • node TestNode

    The TestNode representing the test to run.

add

(
  • testObject
)
static

Adds a test suite or test case to the list of test objects to run.

Parameters:

  • testObject Object

    Either a TestCase or a TestSuite that should be run.

callback

() Function private

Used to continue processing when a method marked with "async:" is executed. This should not be used in test methods, only in init(). Each argument is a string, and when the returned function is executed, the arguments are assigned to the context data object using the string as the key name (value is the argument itself).

Returns:

Function:

A callback function.

clear

() static

Removes all test objects from the runner.

getCoverage

(
  • format
)
Object | String

Returns the coverage report for the files that have been executed. This returns only coverage information for files that have been instrumented using YUI Test Coverage and only those that were run in the same pass.

Parameters:

  • format Function

    (Optional) A coverage format to return results in.

Returns:

Object | String:

Either the coverage object or, if a coverage format is specified, a string representing the results in that format.

getName

() String

Retrieves the name of the current result set.

Returns:

String:

The name of the result set.

getResults

(
  • format
)
Object | String

Returns the last complete results set from the TestRunner. Null is returned if the TestRunner is running or no tests have been run.

Parameters:

  • format Function

    (Optional) A test format to return the results in.

Returns:

Object | String:

Either the results object or, if a test format is passed as the argument, a string representing the results in a specific format.

isRunning

() Boolean

Indicates that the TestRunner is busy running tests and therefore can't be stopped and results cannot be gathered.

Returns:

Boolean:

True if the TestRunner is running, false if not.

isWaiting

() Boolean static

Indicates if the TestRunner is waiting for a test to resume

Returns:

Boolean:

True if the TestRunner is waiting, false if not.

resume

(
  • segment
)
static

Resumes the TestRunner after wait() was called.

Parameters:

  • segment Function

    The function to run as the rest of the haulted test.

run

(
  • options
)
static

Runs the test suite.

Parameters:

  • options Object | Boolean

    (Optional) Options for the runner: oldMode indicates the TestRunner should work in the YUI <= 2.8 way of internally managing test suites. groups is an array of test groups indicating which tests to run.

setName

(
  • name
)

The name assigned to the master suite of the TestRunner. This is the name that is output as the root's name when results are retrieved.

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the result set.

Properties

_cur

TestNode private static

Pointer to the current node in the test tree.

_data

Object private static

Data object that is passed around from method to method.

_groups

String private static

The list of test groups to run. The list is represented by a comma delimited string with commas at the start and end.

Object private static

Holds copy of the results object generated when all tests are complete.
