NAME

       "Tickit::Test" - unit testing for "Tickit"-based code

SYNOPSIS

        use Test::More tests => 2;
        use Tickit::Test;

        use Tickit::Widget::Static;

        my $win = mk_window;

        my $widget = Tickit::Widget::Static->new( text => "Message" );

        $widget->set_window( $win );

        flush_tickit;

        is_termlog( [ SETPEN,
                      CLEAR,
                      GOTO(0,0),
                      SETPEN,
                      PRINT("Message"),
                      SETBG(undef),
                      ERASECH(73) ] );

        is_display( [ "Message" ] );

DESCRIPTION

       This module helps write unit tests for Tickit-based code, such as Tickit::Widget
       subclasses. Primarily, it provides a mock terminal implementation, allowing the code under
       test to affect a virtual terminal, whose state is inspectable by the unit test script.

       This module is used by the "Tickit" unit tests themselves, and provided as an installable
       module, so that authors of widget subclasses can use it too.

FUNCTIONS

   mk_term
          $term = mk_term

       Constructs and returns the mock terminal to unit test with. This object will be cached and
       returned if this function is called again. Most unit tests will want a root window as
       well; for convenience see instead "mk_term_and_window".

       The mock terminal usually starts with a size of 80 columns and 25 lines, though can be
       overridden by passing named arguments.

        $term = mk_term lines => 30, cols => 100;

   mk_window
          $win = mk_window

       Construct a root window using the mock terminal, to unit test with.

   mk_term_and_window
          ( $term, $win ) = mk_term_and_window

       Constructs and returns the mock terminal and root window; equivalent to calling each of
       "mk_term" and "mk_window" separately.

   flush_tickit
          flush_tickit

       Flushes any pending "later" events in the testing "Tickit" object. Because the unit test
       script has no real event loop, this is required instead, to flush any pending events.

   drain_termlog
          drain_termlog

       Drains any pending events from the method log used by the "is_termlog" test.  Useful to
       clear up non-tested events before running a test.

   clear_term
          clear_term

       Clears the entire content form the mock terminal. Useful at the end of a section of tests
       before starting another one. Don't forget to "drain_termlog" afterwards.

   resize_term
          resize_term( $lines, $cols )

       Resize the virtual testing terminal to the size given

   presskey
          presskey( $type, $str, $mod )

       Fire a key event

   pressmouse
          pressmouse( $type, $button, $line, $col, $mod )

       Fire a mouse button event

TEST FUNCTIONS

       The following functions can be used like "Test::More" primitives, in unit test scripts.

   is_termlog
          is_termlog( [ @log ], $name )

       Asserts that the mock terminal log contains exactly the given sequence of methods. See
       also the helper functions below.

       Because this test is quite fragile, relying on the exact nature and order of drawing
       methods invoked on the terminal, it should only be used rarely. Most normal cases of
       widget unit tests should instead only use "is_display".

          is_termlog( { $pos => \@log, ... }, $name )

       The expectation HASH is keyed by strings giving a GOTO position, and the test asserts that
       a sequence of GOTO and other operations were performed equivalent to the expectations
       given in the HASH.

       This differs from the simpler ARRAY reference form by being somewhat more robust against
       rendering order. It checks that every expectation sequence happens exactly once, but does
       not care which order the sections happen in.

        is_termlog( { "0,0" => [ PRINT("Hello") ],
                      "0,6" => [ PRINT("World!") ] } );

   is_display
          is_display( $lines, $name )

       Asserts that the mock terminal display is exactly that as given by the content of $lines,
       which must be an ARRAY reference containing one value for each line of the display. Each
       item may either be a plain string, or an ARRAY reference.

       If a plain string is given, it asserts that the characters on display are those as given
       by the string (trailing blanks may be omitted). The pen attributes of the characters do
       not matter in this case.

        is_display( [ "some lines of",
                      "content here" ] );

       If an ARRAY reference is given, it should contain chunks of content from the "TEXT"
       function. Each chunk represents content on display for the corresponding columns.

        is_display( [ [TEXT("some"), TEXT(" lines of")],
                      "content here" ] );

       The "TEXT" function accepts pen attributes, to assert that the displayed characters have
       exactly the attributes given. In character cells containing spaces, only the "bg"
       attribute is tested.

        is_display( [ [TEXT("This is ",fg=>2), TEXT("bold",fg=>2,b=>1) ] ] );

       The "BLANK" function is a shortcut to providing a number of blank cells

        BLANK(20,bg=>1)  is   TEXT("                    ",bg=>1)

       The "BLANKLINE" and "BLANKLINES" functions are a shortcut to providing an entire line, or
       several lines, of blank content. They yield an array reference or list of array references
       directly.

        BLANKLINE      is   [TEXT("")]
        BLANKLINES(3)  is   [TEXT("")], [TEXT("")], [TEXT("")]

   is_cursorpos
          is_cursorpos( $line, $col, $name )

       Asserts that the mock terminal cursor is at the given position.

METHOD LOG HELPER FUNCTIONS

       The following functions can be used to help write the expected log for a call to
       "is_termlog".

        CLEAR
        GOTO($line,$col)
        ERASECH($count,$move_to_end)
        SCROLLRECT($top,$left,$lines,$cols,$downward,$rightward)
        PRINT($string)
        SETPEN(%attrs)
        SETBG($bg_attr)
