Test that a select option is selected with Cucumber

This step tests whether a given select option comes preselected in the HTML. There is another step to test that an option is available at all.


Then /^"([^"]*)" should be selected for "([^"]*)"(?: within "([^\"]*)")?$/ do |value, field, selector| with_scope(selector) do field_labeled(field).find(:xpath, ".//option[@selected = 'selected'][text() = '#{value}']").should be_present end end


Then /^"([^"]*)" should be selected for "([^"]*)"$/ do |value, field| field_labeled(field)".//option[@selected = 'selected']").inner_html.should =~ /#{value}/ end
