Swift Question

Convert Float to Int in Swift

I want to convert a

Float
to an
Int
in Swift. Basic casting like this does not work because these types are not primitives, unlike
float
s and
int
s in Objective-C

var float: Float = 2.2
var integer: Int = float as Float


But this produces the following error message:


'Float' is not convertible to 'Int'


Any idea how to property convert from
Float
to
Int
?

Answer

You can convert Float to Int in Swift like this:

var myIntValue:Int = Int(myFloatValue)
println "My value is \(myIntValue)"

You can also achieve this result with @paulm's comment:

var myIntValue = Int(myFloatValue)
