Execute a method when a variable value changes in Swift

This post is about how to execute a function when a variable value changes.

Instead of key-value observation, simply use a property observer for the variable. 

For e.g:

Whenever the value of variable named allSlot changes, the two lines will execute which are written in the didSet method.
private var allSlot: [String] = [] {
        didSet {
            slotTableView?.reloadData()
            enableRightBarButton()
        }
    }

Return multiple values from a function in objective C

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
