#9351 closed enhancement (fixed)

Displaying hint with _assertFailure

Reported by: lmdavid Owned by: dante
Priority: high Milestone: 1.4
Component: TestFramework Version: 1.3.0

As I was looking at runner.js, I found that you can provide more specific error messages to assertions errors as a hint. For example: doh.assertFalse = function(/*Object*/ condition, /*String?*/ hint){

Unfortunately this feature seems to be disabled by the following line in the definition of doh._AssertFailure = function(msg, hint){ ...

if(!(this instanceof doh._AssertFailure)){

return new doh._AssertFailure(msg);


.. Should not it be read: return new doh._AssertFailure(msg,hint); ?

I tried it like this and it displays the hints correctly. Is there any reason for the missing argument in the original source code ?
