How should I write tests for Forms in Django with Python

0 votes

I want to simulate requests to my views in Django when I'm writing tests. 

This is mainly to test the forms. Here's a snippet of a simple test request:

from django.tests import TestCase

class MyTests(TestCase):
    def test_forms(self):
        response = self.client.post("/my/form/", {'something':'something'})
        self.assertEqual(response.status_code, 200) # we get our page back with an error

from django.tests import TestCase

class MyTests(TestCase):
    def test_forms(self):
        response = self.client.post("/my/form/", {'something':'something'})
        self.assertFormError(response, 'form', 'something', 'This field is required.')

Where "form" is the context variable name for your form, "something" is the field name, and "This field is required." is the exact text of the expected validation error.
