In the last post I talked about how to integrate tests in the build environment. When we talk about testing I always think on unit testing for my classes and methods but I usually forget UI testing.
With Qt we have a really nice environment to test GUI as well. Widgets implement all the power of signals and slots, and Qt provides a wide range of signals so we can keep track of what happened and what’s currently happening. The fact that we can work with QSignalSpy makes all or testing easier. At least if we know what to test, because some times is not that straight-forward with widgets. Specially with QListWidget, QTableWidget and QTreeWidget classes.
In the Qt5 repository we can finde a lot of tests for those classes:(more…)
