    Warning: The content of this article may be out of date. While the information on the layout debugger is still useful, the testing information is much less relevant now than it has been, as the "rtest" testing framework described here has been superseded by the reftest framework. It is unclear whether or how well rtest continues to work and whether it is still used or not.

    Subject Overview

    Changes in layout, parser and content code can have unintended side effects, also known as regressions. It is good style to check for these unwanted regressions and fixing them before checkin rather than causing Bugzilla avalanches.

    Prerequisites

    In order to run these tests, you will need to have:

    1. Make sure that your build is a debug build (in short you need ac_add_options --enable-debug in your .mozconfig file).
    2. to build the layoutdebugger itself, build either all extensions or include layoutdebug in your .mozconfig file. For example ac_add_options --enable-extensions=all.
    3. a Mozilla tree with the test files at %MOZ_SRC%/layout/html/tests,
    4. DISABLE_TESTS should not be defined (so ac_add_options --enable-tests),
    5. patience and time.

    Test Runs

    • Go to the %MOZ_SRC%/layout/html/tests/block directory.
    • Avoid the nasty assertions to pop up by set XPCOM_DEBUG_BREAK=warn, the world would be a much better place if we could first fix those assertions.
    • As you will probably run your normal Mozilla in parallel with the testing issue then: set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 at the command prompt.
    • Start the layout debugger via mozilla -layoutdebug - P foo where foo is just another profile than your main profile.
    • Select from the Regression-Test Menu the Add New List...entry.
      Menu display Add New List..
    • Select %MOZ_SRC%/layout/html/tests/block/rtest.lst.
    • Execute the baseline test
      baseline run
    • Shutdown the layoutdebugger
    • Execute mozilla -layoutdebug - P foo >selftest.txt
    • Execute the verify test
      verify run
    • Make a note which tests have failed grep 'failed' selftest.txt (these are false positives, quite frequently they indicate reflow problems, pages showing differently when loaded from cache)
    • Make your changes to the source, recompile.
    • Execute mozilla -layoutdebug - P foo >outputfile.txt
    • Execute the verify test
    • Make a note which tests have failed grep 'failed' outputfile.txt
    • Check how many tests have failed and analyze your results:
      • If the regression tests have failed at the same place as the previous diagnosed false positives => ignore
      • Try to figure out what the other regressions are: Are they improving the picture or are they regressions?
      • Note the difficult to explain test failures.
    • Change the source if necessary until the regression tests indicate that your patch does not fork the block and table layout
    • Submit your patch and lists the remaining differences in the bug

    Be prepared to cycle.

    How the layout regression tests work

    First the URL's to test are red from rtest.lst files in various directories. layout/html/tests/block/rtest.lst points to them.

    Snippet from rtest.lst in the table/marvin directory:

    body_col.html
    body_tbody.html
    body_tfoot.html
    body_thead.html
    col_span.html
    

    The regression tests compare the frame tree dumps recorded at two different times. The URL's to test are red from rtest.lstFor every file in rtest.lst Mozilla takes the root frame and dumps the whole tree via nsFrame::DumpRegression.

    The frame tree dumps are invoked by the nsILayoutDebugger. The frame trees are dumped to separate files in a baseline or verify directory for all URL's in rtest.lst (see: nsRegressionTester::DumpFrameModel).

    Their name is generated by replacing the old extension .html or .xml with .rgd. For appendCells1.html a file appendCells1.rgd will be created in the baseline or verify subdirectory.

    A typical beginning of a dump (*.rgd file) looks like:

    <frame va="15022440" type="Viewport(-1)" state="270340" parent="0">
      <view va="47171904">
      </view>
      <stylecontext va="15022232">
    
        <font serif 240 240 0 />

    The baseline log will look like:

    The second verify run creates first the frame dumps in the verify subdirectories (verify) and compares each frame dump with the corresponding reference frame dump. If they differ in critical points the test fails.

    A typical part of the verify log would look like:

    Type Manifest File: e:\moz_src\mozilla\obj-i586-pc-msvc\dist\bin\components\xpti.dat

    Comparison for file:///E:/moz_src/mozilla/layout/html/tests/table/core/baseline/standards1.rgd  failed.
    

    The first regression test has failed and it is marked so.

    Adding new regression tests

    Once you have checked in the code:

    • please add your testcase for the bug to the regression tests.
    • A testcase should only contain local files.
    • Place the images in table/images block/images or (don't forget cvs commit -kb)
    • and the test file in the table/bugs or block/bugs directory.
    • Update the rtest.lst file in the corresponding directory in order to include your file.

    Additional Notes

    There is a special type of frame dumps - the printing regression tests, they are invoked by the -Prt command line argument to the viewer and include first a display then a frame dump taking into account the printer pages. Please contact if you need help with running those tests.

    I would like to thank Chris Karnaze for his guidance and fantasai for her language support.
