I am trying to read simple users list with wire method. However, I'm unable to test the variable value in jest promise, is there anything wrong with my code/understanding?



Jest -

import getUsers from "@salesforce/apex/UserUtil.getUsers";
import { registerLdsTestWireAdapter } from "@salesforce/sfdx-lwc-jest";
const mockGetRecord = require("./data/users.json");
const getRecordWireAdapter = registerLdsTestWireAdapter(getUsers);

describe("c-data-table-dragable", () => {
  afterEach(() => {
    // The jsdom instance is shared across test cases in a single file so reset the DOM
    while (document.body.firstChild) {

      // Prevent data saved on mocks from leaking between tests

it("Check if data is loaded or not", () => {
    const element = createElement("c-data-table-dragable", {
      is: DataTableDragable
    return Promise.resolve().then(() => {
      //expect(element.users.data).toBe(mockGetRecord) //--giving error : cannot read property data of undefined.
      //expect(element.users.error).toBeUndefined()//--giving error : cannot read proper error of undefined.

      //however, the below code is working fine means it's rendering on HTML part. 
      const trEls = element.shadowRoot.querySelectorAll('tr');

mock file -

    "Id": "0050U000004YzSVQA0",

The error you are getting is because you can access only @api properties in the jest test context.

Everything that is marked @track or the @wire is going to be not defined in the test context.

You should just test the DOM elements that have rendered fine with the proper number of elements instead.

  • Hi Mohit, I tried giving track decorator to another variable(which is a map) and try to read in the jest, still it's giving undefined for that. can you point me to any recipe which is using that so that I can try that?

    You need @api to access them! Track and wire won't be accessible! You query the dom elements for the same! Nov 22, 2020 at 6:06
