I am very new to using C#/Specflow to write tests so thank you for the patience. I have a test that ends like this:

Then the Details page should display the rating zip code
    And the Details page should display the ID
    And the Details page should display the Eligible Employee count

And the code behind looks like this:

    [Then(@"the Details page should display the rating zip code")]
    public void ThenTheDetailsPageShouldDisplayTheRatingZipCode()

    {          
        string actualvalue = Driver.Instance.FindElement(By.CssSelector("div.GroupInfoRow:nth-child(3) > label:nth-child(2)")).Text;
        Assert.IsTrue(actualvalue.Equals(actualvalue));          
    }

    [Then(@"the Details page should display the ID")]
    public void ThenTheDetailsPageShouldDisplayTheID()
    {
        string actualvalue = Driver.Instance.FindElement(By.CssSelector("div.GroupInfoRow:nth-child(1) > label:nth-child(2)")).Text;
        Assert.IsTrue(actualvalue.Equals(actualvalue));
    }

    [Then(@"the Details page should display the Eligible Employee count")]
    public void ThenTheDetailsPageShouldDisplayTheEligibleEmployeeCount()
    {
        string actualvalue = Driver.Instance.FindElement(By.CssSelector("div.GroupInfoRow:nth-child(4) > label:nth-child(2)")).Text;
        Assert.IsTrue(actualvalue.Equals(actualvalue));
    }

I would rather it be displayed in a table format but I'm not sure how to do it.

Thank you.

  • What do you mean with table format? – Niels van Reijmersdal Apr 18 at 7:20
  • @NielsvanReijmersdal, I mean the following when I say table, a Specflow table (and my apologies this is not formatted properly when I save it): <p> Then the Details page should display the following: | field | value | | ZipCode | <zipcode> | | ID | <ID> | | EligibleEmpCount | <EligEmpCount> |</p> – Jo-Anne Apr 18 at 16:53

Your specflow file should look like this:

Then the Details page should display the rating zip code
    And the Details page should display
    | Parameter       | Value |
    |  ID             | 5     |
    |  Employee Count | 125   |

And your code should look like this:

[Then(@"the Details page should display")]
public void DetailsPageShouldDisplay(Table table)
{
   List<TestParameter> detailsParameter = table.CreateSet<TestParameter>().ToList();
   // then iterate through detailsParameter by Name and do proper assertions
}

And your TestParameter class should look like this:

public class TestParameter
{
    [TableAliases("Parameter", "Field")]
    public string Name { get; set; } = "";

    public string Value { get; set; } = "";
}

Instead of using Assert, you can create your own Assert class (a singleton), where the method IsXXX call Assert.IsXXX, capture any possible Exception, save the message, and continue. In a @AfterScenario, you can call Assert.IsTrue(false, singletonObject.message) or do whatever you want with the Exceptions if you have any Exception capture there.

I am not a C# programmer, but the idea would be something like:

public void IsTrue(Boolean value, String message) { 
    try{
      Assert.IsTrue(value, message);
    } catch (AssertionError e) {
      this.HasFailed = true;
      this.ExceptionList.add(e); // or this.ExceptionList.add(e.message) or this.ExceptionList.add(message); 
    }
}
