What are you trying to achieve?

I want to check failed step in my custom extension with $stepEvent->getStep()->hasFailed() method.

What do you get instead?

I've got a wrong failed step (it's always before the real one). The reason is step decorators: Retry and TryTo.
Retry should be failed only if all attempts left. TryTo shouldn't fails at all.

Provide console output if related. Use -vvv mode for more details.

I assert equals "tryTo","dontTryDoIt","TryTo fail"
  Failed to perform: TryTo fail
  Failed asserting that two strings are equal., skipping...
  Step: assert equals "tryTo","dontTryDoIt","TryTo fail"
  Is Failed: 1
I assert false true,"The real one problem"
  Step: assert false true,"The real one problem"
  Is Failed: 1

 Test  tests/acceptance/TempCest:checkTryTo
 Step  Assert equals "tryTo","dontTryDoIt","TryTo fail"
 Fail  The real one problem

Provide test source code if related



use \Codeception\Events;

class FailInfoExtension extends \Codeception\Extension 
	public static $events = [
		Events::STEP_AFTER => 'stepAfter',

	public function stepAfter(\Codeception\Event\StepEvent $e) {
		codecept_debug('Step: ' . $e->getStep());
		codecept_debug('Is Failed: ' . $e->getStep()->hasFailed());


class TempCest 
	public function checkTryTo(AcceptanceTester $I) {
		$I->tryToAssertEquals('tryTo', 'dontTryDoIt', 'TryTo fail');
		$I->assertFalse(true, 'The real one problem');

I may have stumbled over this problem/bug as well, but I am not certain:

  • Codeception exit code and (HTML) report are OK (not showing any error), but in the WebDriver's Recorder extension report (when not deleting succesful tests) such tests are shown as error AND in all "slides" of the recordings of this test after the first tryTo* step the step info background colour is red (instead of black)

In acceptance webdriver suite.yml:

    - Codeception\Extension\Recorder:
        delete_successful: false
  - \Codeception\Step\Retry
  - \Codeception\Step\TryTo
