protected function DrupalWebTestCase::assertThemeOutput

7.x drupal_web_test_case.php protected DrupalWebTestCase::assertThemeOutput($callback, array $variables = array(), $expected, $message = '', $group = 'Other')

Asserts themed output.


$callback: The name of the theme function to invoke; e.g. 'links' for theme_links().

$variables: An array of variables to pass to the theme function.

$expected: The expected themed output string.

$message: (optional) A message to display with the assertion. Do not translate messages: use format_string() to embed variables in the message text, not t(). If left blank, a default message will be displayed.

$group: (optional) The group this message is in, which is displayed in a column in test output. Use 'Debug' to indicate this is debugging output. Do not translate this string. Defaults to 'Other'; most tests do not override this default.

Return value

TRUE on pass, FALSE on fail.
