Time.parsedo not react the same when passed data that can’t be parsed:
<code> $ script/console Loading development environment. >> Time.parse "monkey" => Thu Jun 14 08:43:10 PDT 2007 >> Date.parse "monkey" ArgumentError: 3 elements of civil date are necessary from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/date.rb:650:in `new_with_hash' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/date.rb:695:in `parse' from (irb):2 >> </code>
assert_redirected_tocan fail if you are not consistent in your “strings vs symbols” notation. Example:
<code> class MonkeyWranglersController < ActionController def index redirect_to :controller "monkey_wranglers", :action => :list end end </code>
Now, the assertions:
<code> get :index assert_redirected_to :controller => "monkey_wranglers", :action => :list # passes ### get :index assert_redirected_to :controller => "monkey_wranglers", :action => "list" # fails </code>
ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper::cyclehelps you with the “every-other-row-should-be-a-different-color” pattern usually seen in tabular data.
