Instance Method Details

- (Object) pending - (Object) pending(message) - (Object) pending(message, &block)

Note:

before(:each) hooks are eval'd when you use the pending method within an example. If you want to declare an example pending and bypass the before hooks as well, you can pass :pending => true to the it method:

it "does something", :pending => true do
  # ...
end

or pass :pending => "something else getting finished" to add a message to the summary report:

it "does something", :pending => "something else getting finished" do
  # ...
end

Stops execution of an example, and reports it as pending. Takes an optional message and block.

Examples:

describe "an example" do
  # reported as "Pending: no reason given"
  it "is pending with no message" do
    pending
    this_does_not_get_executed
  end

  # reported as "Pending: something else getting finished"
  it "is pending with a custom message" do
    pending("something else getting finished")
    this_does_not_get_executed
  end

  # reported as "Pending: something else getting finished"
  it "is pending with a failing block" do
    pending("something else getting finished") do
      raise "this is the failure"
    end
  end

  # reported as failure, saying we expected the block to fail but
  # it passed.
  it "is pending with a passing block" do
    pending("something else getting finished") do
      true.should be(true)
    end
  end
end

Parameters:

  • message (String)

    optional message to add to the summary report.

  • block (Block)

    optional block. If it fails, the example is reported as pending. If it executes cleanly the example fails.
