I dont understand why this rspec test is failing. Can you help?

I am getting the following error whilst performing the tests in rspec/capybara.

1 example, 1 failure

Failed examples:

rspec ./spec/features/todo_lists/edit_spec.rb:4 # Editing todo lists updates a todo list with the correct stuff

The following is the code that i'm trying to run.

Can anyone help me?

require 'spec_helper'

describe "Editing todo lists" do
    it "updates a todo list with the correct stuff" do

        todo_list = TodoList.create(title: "Groceries", description: "Grocery list")

        visit "/todo_lists"
        within "#todo_list_#{todo_list.id}" do
            click_link "Edit"

        fill_in "Title", with: "This is a new title"
        fill_in "Description", with: "New description"
        click_button "Update Todo List"


        expect(page).to have_content("Todo list was successfully updated.")
        expect(todo_list.title).to eq("This is a new title")
        expect(todo_list.description). to eq("New description")

It's ok I found the error.

The click_button "Update Todo List" should have had a lowercase "l" for the word list. so

The click_button "Update Todo list"

I was looking for an error on line 4

Thanks anyway and I hope that this helps other people.
