How to convert Int to int in swift?

I have a variable called number of type Int

var number = value!.integerValue as Int

Now I have to create a NSNumber object using that value.

I am trying to use this constructor

value = NSNumber(int: number)

, but it does not work.

It expect the primitive type int, not Int I guess.

Anyone know how to get around this?



You just do value = number

As you can see in the documentation:

Swift automatically bridges certain native number types, such as Int and Float, to NSNumber. This bridging lets you create an NSNumber from one of these types:


let n = 42
let m: NSNumber = n
It also allows you to pass a value of type Int, for example, to an argument expecting an NSNumber. Note that because NSNumber can contain a variety of different types, you cannot pass it to something expecting an Int value.

All of the following types are automatically bridged to NSNumber:
