Deprecation warning

setMethods is deprecated and will be removed in future releases.

There's no clear path to replace setMethods, because it really depends on your previous usage. It easily leads to flaky tests that rely on implementation details, which is discouraged.

We suggest rethinking those tests.

To stub a complex method extract it from the component and test it in isolation. To assert that a method is called, use your test runner to spy on it.

Sets Wrapper vm methods and forces update.

Note the Wrapper must contain a Vue instance.

  • Arguments:

    • {Object} methods
  • Example:

import { mount } from '@vue/test-utils'
import sinon from 'sinon'
import Foo from './Foo.vue'

const wrapper = mount(Foo)
const clickMethodStub = sinon.stub()

wrapper.setMethods({ clickMethod: clickMethodStub })
