Testing autoform submission with Jasmine and velocity

Hi Guys,

I am pretty new to meteor. I was trying to use autoform to create an automatic form and test it. But I can’t seem to get it right.

I was simply trying to test an error scenario for the book example. Where we have a book schema with required fields and submitting the empty form to give us the error messages.

I am using both packages collection2 and autoform, my schema looks like this:

Books = new Mongo.Collection("books");

var Schemas = {};

Schemas.Book = new SimpleSchema({
    title: {
        type: String,
        label: "Title",
        max: 200
    author: {
        type: String,
        label: "Author"
    copies: {
        type: Number,
        label: "Number of copies",
        min: 0
    lastCheckedOut: {
        type: Date,
        label: "Last date this book was checked out",
        optional: true
    summary: {
        type: String,
        label: "Brief summary",
        optional: true,
        max: 1000


I added a form like this:


  <h1>Welcome to Meteor!</h1>

  {{> insertBookForm}}

<template name="insertBookForm">
  {{> quickForm collection="Books" id="insertBookForm" type="insert"}}

I added velocity and jasmine and my test looks like this:

describe("Initial insert form ", function() {
  it("insert form should submit", function() {

    var spyEvent = spyOnEvent('#insertBookForm', 'submit');
    var form = $('#insertBookForm');

    var block = form.find("span.help-block")

    expect(block[0].outerHTML).toContain('Title is required');

And my error is:

Expected '<span class="help-block"></span>' to contain 'Title is required'.

Showing that no error appeared for the title.

Can somebody help and explain to me why is this happening?
I have an example repository here that you can download: https://github.com/andreorvalho/test_autoform_submit

I am not sure if this has to do with some async situation I am not understanding or if it is autoform that does things a little different.

Hope somebody can help me.

Best regards,
