If I’m using Karma and Jasmine to test my Ionic application, here’s how I’d test a click event:
spyOn(storyPreview, 'goToStory'); var previewInner = storyPreviewEl.querySelector('.story-preview'); previewInner.click(); // previewInner.tap() <----- this doesn't work // previewInner.dispatchEvent('tap') <----- neither does this storyPreviewFixture.detectChanges(); expect(storyPreview.goToStory).toHaveBeenCalled();
However, I wanted to use the
(tap) directive instead of the
(click) because it responds much faster but I wasn’t able to figure out how to test that in my unit test. Doing
previewInner.tap() doesn’t work. I know you guys are using Hammer under the hood and I saw a post on Stack Overflow about Hammer specifically but figured I’d ask here in case others were wondering how to test it for Ionic.
