When using assertLinkById in a test and the test fails, it causes a fatal error because of a missing test.

Example of the errormessage:
Fatal error: Call to a member function asString() on a non-object in simpletest/simpletest/trunk/web_tester.php on line 1110

I tried to create a failing test for this in acceptancetests:

--- test/acceptance_test.php (revision 1968)
+++ test/acceptance_test.php (working copy)
@@ -319,7 +320,13 @@
$this->assertTrue($this->clickLinkById(1));
$this->assertText('target for the SimpleTest');
}
+ function testLinkIdFollowingFail() {
+ // $this->expectException(); <-- expectException could be usefull for the webtest as well...
+ $this->get($this->samples() . 'link_confirm.php');
+ $this->assertLinkById("test-link-that-does-not-exist");
+ }

But I didn't get it to work.

    It's working for me : I couldn't reproduce the bug with the /trunk version. Your test is indeed failing but not with a fatal error anymore.

    Yours,
