Home > @loopback/testlab > createStubInstance
Creates a new object with the given functions as the prototype and stubs all implemented functions.
Note: The given constructor function is not invoked. See also the stub API.
This is a helper method replacing
sinon.createStubInstance and working around the limitations of TypeScript and Sinon, where Sinon is not able to list private/protected members in the type definition of the stub instance and therefore the stub instance cannot be assigned to places expecting TType.

export declare function createStubInstance<TType extends object>(constructor: sinon.StubbableType<TType>): StubbedInstanceWithSinonAccessor<TType>;
|constructor||sinon.StubbableType<TType>||Object or class to stub.|
A stubbed version of the constructor, with an extra property
stubs providing access to stub API for individual methods.
