Cell Matching

Fixtures may compare expected values provided in cells to actual values provided by the system under test.

CellMatching
actual typeactual valueexpected valuematches
stringaaaaaaTruea string is equal to expected
stringaaabbbFalsea string is not equal to expected
int55Truea number is equal to expected
int56Falsea number is not equal to expected
int5xxxExceptiona number doesn't match an invalid value

Special symbols and keywords can be used in the expected value cells.

Numbers can use comparison operators.

Numeric comparisons can be combined with symbol recall.

When a cell match fails, the Cell Differences are displayed.
