QUnit asyncTest does not continue after error


How can I tell QUnit to consider errors during asyncTest as test failures and continue to next test?

here is an example which QUnit stops running after a ReferenceError: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/bakhshi/7VfSb/" rel="nofollow">jsfiddle</a>


Errors in asynchronous tests die silently if they arise while QUnit isn't officially running.

The simplest solution is to wrap every asyncTest contents in a try/catch block that propagates any errors <em>after</em> restarting QUnit. We don't actually have to pollute the code with a million try/catches--we can decorate your existing methods automagically.

For example:

// surrounds any function with a try/catch block to propagate errors to QUnit when // called during an asyncTest function asyncTrier(method) { return function () { try{ // if the method runs normally, great! method(); } catch (e) { // if not, restart QUnit and pass the error on QUnit.start(); throw new (e); } }; } QUnit.asyncTest("sample", 1, function () { setTimeout(asyncTrier(function(){ var foo = window.nonexistentobj.toString() + ""; // throws error QUnit.ok("foo defined", !!foo) QUnit.start(); }), 1000); });

Forked your Fiddle, with a sample wrapping method to automatically apply such a try/catch around every asynchronous block: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/bnMWd/4/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/bnMWd/4/</a>
