Load custom xib from viewcontroller in SWIFT

In custom UIView class  class NearByOffer: UIView, override the init method as follows


    override init(frame: CGRect) {
        super.init(frame: frame)
        xibSetup()
    }

    required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
        super.init(coder: aDecoder)

 }


Set up the xib as follows:-

func xibSetup() {
        view = loadViewFromNib()
        
        view.frame = bounds
        view.autoresizingMask = [UIViewAutoresizing.FlexibleWidth, UIViewAutoresizing.FlexibleHeight]        
        // Adding custom subview on top of our view (over any custom drawing > see note below)
        view.backgroundColor = UIColor(white: 1.0, alpha: 0.5)
        addSubview(view)
    }


Load view from custom nib/xib as follows:-
    func loadViewFromNib() -> UIView {
        let bundle = NSBundle(forClass: self.dynamicType)
        let nib = UINib(nibName: "NearByOffer", bundle: bundle)
        
        // Assumes UIView is top level and only object in CustomView.xib file
        let view = nib.instantiateWithOwner(self, options: nil)[0] as! UIView
        return view
    }



USAGE in ViewController

    func showNearByOfferPopup()
    {
        let window = UIApplication.sharedApplication().delegate?.window
        let nearByOfferViewObject = NearByOffer(frame: (window!?.frame)!)
        window!!.addSubview(nearByOfferViewObject)
    }

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 }

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.
