ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2

public abstract class ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2
extends ActivityTestCase

java.lang.Object

This class provides functional testing of a single activity. The activity under test will be created using the system infrastructure (by calling InstrumentationTestCase.launchActivity()) and you will then be able to manipulate your Activity directly.

Other options supported by this test case include:

This class replaces ActivityInstrumentationTestCase, which is deprecated. New tests should be written using this base class.

If you prefer an isolated unit test, see ActivityUnitTestCase.

Summary

Public constructors

ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2(String pkg, Class<T> activityClass)

This constructor was deprecated in API level 8. use ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2(Class) instead

ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2(Class<T> activityClass)

Creates an ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2.

Public methods

T getActivity()

Get the Activity under test, starting it if necessary.

void setActivityInitialTouchMode(boolean initialTouchMode)

Call this method before the first call to getActivity() to set the initial touch mode for the Activity under test.

void setActivityIntent(Intent i)

Call this method before the first call to getActivity() to inject a customized Intent into the Activity under test.

Protected methods

void runTest()

Runs the current unit test.

void setUp()

Sets up the fixture, for example, open a network connection.

void tearDown()

Make sure all resources are cleaned up and garbage collected before moving on to the next test.

Public constructors

ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2

Added in API level 3
ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2 (String pkg, 
                Class<T> activityClass)

This constructor was deprecated in API level 8.
use ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2(Class) instead

Creates an ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2.

Parameters
pkg String: ignored - no longer in use.
activityClass Class: The activity to test. This must be a class in the instrumentation targetPackage specified in the AndroidManifest.xml

ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2

Added in API level 8
ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2 (Class<T> activityClass)

Creates an ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2.

Parameters
activityClass Class: The activity to test. This must be a class in the instrumentation targetPackage specified in the AndroidManifest.xml

Public methods

getActivity

Added in API level 3
T getActivity ()

Get the Activity under test, starting it if necessary. For each test method invocation, the Activity will not actually be created until the first time this method is called.

If you wish to provide custom setup values to your Activity, you may call setActivityIntent(Intent) and/or setActivityInitialTouchMode(boolean) before your first call to getActivity(). Calling them after your Activity has started will have no effect.

NOTE: Activities under test may not be started from within the UI thread. If your test method is annotated with UiThreadTest, then your Activity will be started automatically just before your test method is run. You still call this method in order to get the Activity under test.

Returns
T the Activity under test

setActivityInitialTouchMode

Added in API level 3
void setActivityInitialTouchMode (boolean initialTouchMode)

Call this method before the first call to getActivity() to set the initial touch mode for the Activity under test.

If you do not call this, the touch mode will be false. If you call this after your Activity has been started, it will have no effect.

NOTE: Activities under test may not be started from within the UI thread. If your test method is annotated with UiThreadTest, then you must call setActivityInitialTouchMode(boolean) from setUp().

Parameters
initialTouchMode boolean: true if the Activity should be placed into "touch mode" when started

setActivityIntent

Added in API level 3
void setActivityIntent (Intent i)

Call this method before the first call to getActivity() to inject a customized Intent into the Activity under test.

If you do not call this, the default intent will be provided. If you call this after your Activity has been started, it will have no effect.

NOTE: Activities under test may not be started from within the UI thread. If your test method is annotated with UiThreadTest, then you must call setActivityIntent(Intent) from setUp().

The default Intent (if this method is not called) is: action = ACTION_MAIN flags = FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK All other fields are null or empty.

Parameters
i Intent: The Intent to start the Activity with, or null to reset to the default Intent.

Protected methods

runTest

Added in API level 3
void runTest ()

Runs the current unit test. If the unit test is annotated with UiThreadTest, force the Activity to be created before switching to the UI thread.

Throws
Throwable

setUp

Added in API level 3
void setUp ()

Sets up the fixture, for example, open a network connection. This method is called before a test is executed.

Throws
Exception

tearDown

Added in API level 3
void tearDown ()

Make sure all resources are cleaned up and garbage collected before moving on to the next test. Subclasses that override this method should make sure they call super.tearDown() at the end of the overriding method.

Throws
Exception
