}
]
})


function from where I called it

func getJSON(){

let getEndPoint: String = "http://xxx/api/get_user_profile_info/"
Alamofire.request(getEndPoint)
.responseJSON { response in

guard response.result.error == nil else {
// got an error in getting the data, need to handle it
print("error calling GET")
print(response.result.error!)
return
}

if let value = response.result.value {

let json = JSON(value)
// print(jsonM)
//print("message are***********************************************")
//print(json["message"].dictionary)
let message = json["message"].dictionary

for items in message! {

print("items are.....******************", items)


}


//DispatchQueue.main.async {
// self.afData = 1
// self.tableView.reloadData()

}
}

}


Model Class

class ProfileJSON {

var user_Image: URL?
var post_image:URL?


init(items: JSON) {

self.user_Image = items["user_img"].URL

let post_imgAA = items["post_img"].array
for itemsIMG in post_imgAA! {
self.post_image = itemsIMG["guid"].URL
}
}

}


I want to get the user_img to show as profile picture and the
post_img for showing picture in the CollectionViewCell . Finding it difficult to convert JSON Dictionary to Swift MutableObject . Any suggestion , any tutorial link would be great great help for me. I have just started to work with JSON from this month , finding it difficult.

Answer

In your ProfileJSON you need to create array of URL type for post_image because user_Image is once but post_image is coming multiple times and then you can get post_image from dictionary like this.

class ProfileJSON {

    var user_Image: URL?
    var post_image: [URL?] = [URL?]()

    init(dic: [String: Any]) {
        if let userUrl = dic["user_img"] as? String {
            self.user_Image = URL(string: userUrl)
        }

        //For getting only number keys with ascending order
        let keys = (Array(dic.keys) as [String]).filter { (Int($0) != nil) }.sorted {
            (s1, s2) -> Bool in return s1.localizedStandardCompare(s2) == .orderedAscending
        }

        //Loop through the keys Array and append all your `post_image`.
        for key in keys {
            if let post_imgArray = dic[key] as? [[String: Any]] {
                for post in post_imgArray {
                    if let postUrl = post["guid"] as? String {
                        self.post_image.append(URL(string: postUrl))
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }        
}

Now create the object of ProfileJSON after initialization of message like this.

if let message = json["message"] as? [String: Any] {
     let profileJSON = ProfileJSON(dic: message)
}
