Return multiple values from a function in objective C

We can return tuples in swift as follows:-

func getData()->(Int,Int,Int){//...code herereturn( hour, minute, second)}You can't do that in objective-c. Best option is using parameters by reference. Something like this.

Disabling print for Production In Swift Project

You'll need to set up a compiler flag to use the Swift preprocessor - go to the Swift Compiler - Custom Flags section of Build Settings to set up a -D DEBUG flag:

Then in your code you can define a DLog() function and only print your message if the DEBUG flag is set:
func DLog(message: String, function: String = __FUNCTION__) { #if DEBUG     println("\(function): \(message)") #endif }

Collection view inside table view with NO vertical scrolling

UICollectionView inside a UITableViewCell — dynamic height?
Given the following structure: TableViewTableViewCellCollectionViewCollectionViewCellCollectionViewCellCollectionViewCell[...variable number of cells or different cell sizes]
The solution is to tell auto layout to compute first the collectionViewCell sizes, then the collection view contentSize, and use it as the size of your cell. This is the UIView method that "does the magic": -(void)systemLayoutSizeFittingSize:(CGSize)targetSize      withHorizontalFittingPriority:(UILayoutPriority)horizontalFittingPriority            verticalFittingPriority:(UILayoutPriority)verticalFittingPriority

Thanks to this awesome answer.
