step( [ message ] )

A marker for progress in a given test.

name description
message (string) Message to display for the step


The step() assertion registers a passing assertion with a provided message. This makes it easy to check that specific portions of code are being executed, especially in asynchronous test cases and when used with verifySteps(). A step will always pass unless a message is not provided.

Together with the verifySteps() method, step() assertions give you an easy way to verify both the count and order of code execution.


QUnit.test( "step test", function( assert ) {
  assert.expect( 1 );
  obj.hook = function() {
    assert.step('Hook is called!');

Note: See the verifySteps entry for more detailed examples.
