class ErrorHolder(TestHolder): (source)

View In Hierarchy

Used to insert arbitrary errors into a test suite run. Provides enough methods to look like a TestCase, however, when it is run, it simply adds an error to the TestResult. The most common use-case is for when a module fails to import.
Method __init__
Method __repr__ Undocumented
Method run Run the test, reporting the error.
Instance Variable error Undocumented
