Changing from <ul> to <table> causes rspec errors?
In the lecture this change was made and no rspec test was attempted. However, apparently 2 failures result from this:
Failure/Error: within("ul.todo_items") do Failure/Error: expect(page.all("ul.todo_items li").size).to eq(2) ... rspec ./spec/features/todo_items/create_spec.rb:6 # Adding todo items is successful with valid content rspec ./spec/features/todo_items/index_spec.rb:18 # Viewing todo items displays item content when a todo list has items
What's the best way to fix them? Would the followings be good ok?  create_spec.rb within("table.todo_items") do  index_spec.rb expect(page.all("table.todo_items td").size).to eq(4) within "table.todo_items" do
At any point after the lesson of "Writing Test Helpers", anyone should see the "ul vs table" errors if you run "bin/rake". I think it's a defect of this course to run the extaustive test just in the begining and dimishingly doing so in the latter lessons.
The fixes temporarily work at that moment; however, later in the lecture, other tables are introduced and hence they lose uniqueness as the table so that the rspec eventually fails as below:
1) Adding todo items is successful with valid content Failure/Error: within("table.todo_items") do Capybara::Ambiguous: Ambiguous match, found 2 elements matching css "table.todo_items" # ./spec/features/todo_items/create_spec.rb:13:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>' 2) Viewing todo items displays item content when a todo list has items Failure/Error: within "table.todo_items" do Capybara::Ambiguous: Ambiguous match, found 2 elements matching css "table.todo_items"
There must be a better solution. Anyone?
Thank you, Maciej. I only understand your fix in theory, but I'm not knowledgable enough to implement your fix. I need the fix that is detailed for beginners.
