phpUnit and getMock

I am using phpunit in my yii project. I’m new to phpUnit and have run into a tough problem.

I am testing a function in a class whose constructor I absolutely have to disable because it news up an object that I can’t access from the test. So, I use the code:

public function testConnect(){

    $mock = $this->getMockBuilder('FSCall')





    $call = new FSCall;



…where ‘setOpened’ is a local function that function connect calls, but I don’t need it to actually call the function for the unit test.

The problem is that phpUnit returns the error "Call to undefined method FSCall::connect()". The function is in the FSCall class. Now I can "fix" the error by doing a…


…but then the connects function doesn’t actually get called.

What am I misunderstanding here?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Similar trouble, but I’m stuck with attaching Mock object.

CException: "__METHOD__" and its behaviors do not have a method or closure named "attach".

Can someone suggest an example for Yii and getMock(), please?
