Arguments

x

[any]
Object to check.

classes

[character]
Class names to check for inheritance with inherits. x must inherit from all specified classes.

ordered

[logical(1)]
Expect x to be specialized in provided order. Default is FALSE.

cloneable

[logical(1)]
If TRUE, check that x has a clone method. If FALSE, ensure that x is not cloneable.

public

[character]
Names of expected public slots. This includes active bindings.

private

[character]
Names of expected private slots.

null.ok

[logical(1)]
If set to TRUE, x may also be NULL. In this case only a type check of x is performed, all additional checks are disabled.

.var.name

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in assertions. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

add

[AssertCollection]
Collection to store assertion messages. See AssertCollection.

info

[character(1)]
Extra information to be included in the message for the testthat reporter. See expect_that.

label

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in messages. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

Value

Depending on the function prefix: If the check is successful, the functions assertClass/assert_class return x invisibly, whereas checkClass/check_class and testClass/test_class return TRUE. If the check is not successful, assertClass/assert_class throws an error message, testClass/test_class returns FALSE, and checkClass returns a string with the error message. The function expect_class always returns an expectation.

Examples

library(R6) generator = R6Class("Bar", public = list(a = 5), private = list(b = 42), active = list(c = function() 99) ) x = generator$new() checkR6(x, "Bar", cloneable = TRUE, public = "a")
#> [1] TRUE
