Hi,

I'm just learning jasmine and requirejs. I have this bit of code:

/*global describe, it, */
/*jshint -W117*/
define(
  [
    "js/helpers/HitPoints"
  ], 
  function( HitPoints ) {

    describe('Hitpoints stats', 
      function () {
        'use strict';

        var hitPoints = new HitPoints( 10, 10 );
        var oValues = hitPoints.getValues();

        /*beforeEach(function() {
          hitPoints = new HitPoints( 10, 10 );
          oValues = hitPoints.getValues();
        });*/

        it("has damages equal to expected from applyDamaage()", function () {

            hitPoints.setCallback( window , hitPoints.onHitsPointsChangedMan );
            hitPoints.applyDamage(2);

            expect(oValues.value).toEqual(2);
        });

        it("returns the values as objects", function () {
          //var oValues = hitPoints.getValues();

          expect(oValues).toBeDefined();
        });

    });

});

Open in new window


I'm trying to get the beforeEach currently commented out to work.

I tried using the this keyword too like (http://jasmine.github.io/2.0/introduction.html):

beforeEach(function() {
          this.hitPoints = new HitPoints( 10, 10 );
          this.oValues = hitPoints.getValues();
        });

Open in new window


But the other it() calls saying that this.hitPoints is undefined still. I changed the hitPoints variable to this.hitPoints in the it()  functions too.

Any  suggestions?

Thank you!

Oh, I think this is the answer which makes it work now!

ref. http://www.sep.com/sep-blog/2014/07/16/jasmine-a-whole-new-world-of-javascript-testing-3/

        var hitPoints,
            oValues;

        beforeEach(function() {
          hitPoints = new HitPoints( 10, 10 );
          oValues = hitPoints.getValues();
        });

Open in new window
