didSelectRowAtIndexPath not working, Swift 3

Can anyone see why in the world didSelectRowAtIndexPath would not be called? I have triple checked by

both in the code and in storyboard.

class AddCard: UIViewController,UIPopoverPresentationControllerDelegate, UITableViewDataSource, UITableViewDelegate {

@IBOutlet weak var cardView: UIView!
@IBOutlet weak var tableView: UITableView!

let tableItems = ["Background Color","Background Image","Font Style","Font Color"]
let cellID = "cell"

override func viewDidLoad() {

tableView.delegate = self
tableView.dataSource = self

override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
// Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

func setBackgroundColor (_ color: UIColor) {
cardView.backgroundColor = color

func numberOfSectionsInTableView(tableView: UITableView) -> Int {
return 1

func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, numberOfRowsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
return tableItems.count

func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: cellID, for: indexPath as IndexPath)

let row = indexPath.row
cell.textLabel?.text = tableItems[row]

return cell

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAtIndexPath indexPath: IndexPath) {
tableView.deselectRow(at: indexPath as IndexPath, animated: true)
let row = indexPath.row
case 0:
let popoverVC = storyboard?.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "colorPickerVC") as! ColorPickerViewController
popoverVC.modalPresentationStyle = .popover
popoverVC.preferredContentSize = CGSize(width: 284, height: 446)
if let popoverController = popoverVC.popoverPresentationController {
popoverController.sourceView = self.view
popoverController.sourceRect = CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 85, height: 30)
popoverController.permittedArrowDirections = .any
popoverController.delegate = self
popoverVC.delegate = self
present(popoverVC, animated: true, completion: nil)
default: break

Swift 3 modified the signature of the method (a lot of methods too, new "rules"/style)

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAtIndexPath indexPath: IndexPath) with
func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAt indexPath: IndexPath)

Notice the _, the didSelectRowAt vs didSelectRowAtIndexPath, like the other ones you updated (which adapted also the same "style"), but not this one.

Remove the line and let XCode do the autocompletion. Else, you can just replace it with the one from the doc.
