Hi all,

I'm working on a FASTA filter script, as per this email:

Current code here:

I've added a basic test, but it won't run (see output below). I think
the interesting bit of the error output is this exception: cannot find
value/label "blastp_four_human_vs_rhodopsin.tabular" in list control,
coming from function set_form_control_value in the twill.utils module.

This is something to do with the columns parameter, a multiselect
option referencing the columns in this tabular file. Removing the
validator makes no difference. However, if I change the columns
parameter to a plain text parameter, the test passes:

I've tried searching the provided wrappers for similar examples (column
multi-select from a tabular file). I found filters/uniq.xml (works but uses
a bed file rather than a simple tabular file) and stats/cor.xml (needs R
and rpy which I don't have installed yet) which have tests, and finally
plotting/bar_chart.xml which has no unit tests.

Would someone familiar with the internals of the Galaxy tests and
how they set tool parameters be able to try reproducing this for me?
The branch has all the unit test files required, and there are no new
dependencies needed.

Thank you,



Here is the output (on Linux - other tests tried pass):

$ ./ -id fasta_filter_by_id

continuing, but caught exception: cannot find value/label

Hello again,

for the original email and full log. The most interesting part of the logging
was the caught exception (and the tool being tested was never run):

cannot find value/label "blastp_four_human_vs_rhodopsin.tabular" in list control

I don't recall if/how this was resolved, I've since deprecated this tool
itself - replacing it with a more general version:

However, I've just hit what seems to be a very similar issue while
trying to add what should be a simple unit test to my sequence
renaming script, / which is in the
main Tool Shed here:

Here's the current latest code (not yet pushed to the public
Tool Shed), which is now on the test Tool Shed and on my
bitbucket branch:

Here's the test itself,

                         <param name="input_file"
value="four_human_proteins.fasta" ftype="fasta" />
                         <param name="input_tabular"
value="four_human_proteins.rename.tabular" ftype="tabular" />
                         <param name="old_column" value="1" />
                         <param name="new_column" value="2" />
                         <output name="output_file"
file="four_human_proteins.rename.fasta" ftype="fasta" />

Now I am quite puzzled by what happens running the test, the
full output is at the end of this email. Strangely the tool itself
is never actually run, and instead Galaxy compares one of
the input files to the expected output file and they don't match.

As in my email from 2010, this is most interesting line in the output,
just after the two input files are 'uploaded' to the current history:

base.twilltestcase DEBUG 2013-04-22 18:20:18,061 In submit_form,
continuing, but caught exception: cannot find value/label
"four_human_proteins.rename.tabular" in list control

It would appear that the tabular file has not been added to
the potential valid datasets available to the $input_tabular

This test should have been attempted on the Test Tool Shed
last night, but there is nothing to show for it - something that
has happened in other corner cases - I'll flag this on the other
thread. Likely this is due to the exception within the test
framework itself.
