testing

The value-dt-test-abbr-YYYY-MM-DD-abbr-HH-MM test demonstrate the concatenation of two abbr title attributes to create one datetime value:

  • YYYY-MM-DD in abbr element title attribute, with locale/language-specific contents
  • HH:MM in abbr element title attribute, with locale/language-specific contents

in an hCalendar event.

markup pattern

Here is the markup pattern fragment (escaped, and with abstract not real values) that is being tested:

<span class="dtstart">
  <abbr class="value" title="YYYY-MM-DD">
  day of the week, month, and day
  </abbr> 
  at 
  <abbr class="value" title="HH:MM">
  HHpm
  </abbr>
</span>


test

hCalendar test in actual markup on the page (view or edit source to see actual hCalendar markup)

The sample event will take place on Friday, June 5th at 8pm

expected iCalendar output

Here is the expected iCalendar output, omitting optional "X-" properties, and implementation specific "PRODID" property:

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
VERSION:2.0
METHOD:PUBLISH
CALSCALE:GREGORIAN
BEGIN:VEVENT
SUMMARY;LANGUAGE=en;CHARSET=utf-8:sample event
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20090605T200000
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

The key line that an hCalendar to iCalendar converter must match in order to pass this test:

DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20090605T200000

Acceptable variant:

DTSTART:20090605T200000

Asserts

A set of programming tests for xUnit testing frameworks
Test Result Comment
vevent[0].dtstart IsEqualToISODate("2009-06-05T20:00") With the value class pattern the results should contain a date and time


results

derivation

This test was derived from the first example shown after "the following are possible" in Jeremy Keith's blog post Microformation.
