JSON Question

'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: 'Invalid type in JSON write (_SwiftValue)' with alamofire swift3

I've encountered following error while uploading Swift3 using XCode8.


'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: 'Invalid type in JSON write
(_SwiftValue)'


let param: Parameters = [
"email":txrNRC.text as AnyObject,
"password":txtPassword.text as AnyObject
]


Please let me know how to solve that issue. I've already tried with
let param: NSDictionary
but got same error message.

Answer

First of all in Swift 3 the Objective-C equivalent of id is Any rather than AnyObject, that avoids also the AnyObject castings.

The error message indicates that an illegal type is used (Parameters), JSON supports only string, number, <null> and array / dictionary.

In your case the dictionary is [String:String], a type annotation is not needed at all

let param = [
    "email" : txrNRC.text,
    "password" : txtPassword.text
]

If txrNRC and txtPassword are optionals you need to unwrap them or use the nil coalescing operator to assign a placeholder if the value is nil
