Javascript – Using object types with Jasmine’s toHaveBeenCalledWith method

bddjasminejavascripttdd

I've just started using Jasmine so please forgive the newbie question but is it possible to test for object types when using toHaveBeenCalledWith?

expect(object.method).toHaveBeenCalledWith(instanceof String);

I know I could this but it's checking the return value rather than the argument.

expect(k instanceof namespace.Klass).toBeTruthy();

Best Solution

I've discovered an even cooler mechanism, using jasmine.any(), as I find taking the arguments apart by hand to be sub-optimal for legibility.

In CoffeeScript:

obj = {}
obj.method = (arg1, arg2) ->

describe "callback", ->

   it "should be called with 'world' as second argument", ->
     spyOn(obj, 'method')
     obj.method('hello', 'world')
     expect(obj.method).toHaveBeenCalledWith(jasmine.any(String), 'world')
