isEmptyDomElement top-level constant Matchers

Matcher const isEmptyDomElement

Allows you to assert whether an element has content or not.

Similar to jest-dom's toBeEmptyDOMElement matcher.


<span data-test-id="not-empty"><span data-test-id="empty"></span></span>
import 'package:react/react.dart' as react;
import 'package:react_testing_library/matchers.dart' show isEmptyDomElement;
import 'package:react_testing_library/react_testing_library.dart' as rtl;
import 'package:test/test.dart';

main() {
  test('', () {
    // Render the DOM shown in the example snippet above
    final view = rtl.render(
      react.span({'data-test-id': 'not-empty'},
        react.span({'data-test-id': 'empty'}),

    // Use the `isEmptyDomElement` matcher as the second argument of `expect()`
    expect(view.getByTestId('empty'), isEmptyDomElement);
    expect(view.getByTestId('not-empty'), isNot(isEmptyDomElement));

NOTE: render() supports React vDom elements / custom components created using either the react or over_react packages.

The examples shown here use the react package since the react_testing_library does not have a direct dependency on over_react - but both libraries are fully supported.
