Swift (Xcode) - Pass Value to Next Controller From Table Cell -> Action Button -> Segue

I have table view and in each cell have a button which opens up an action sheet. Once that action sheet opens up there is an action "Report Progress". When I press that action button, I want to open another view controller having segue identifier "ShowProgressReport". In that new view controller I have a property "ProjectName" which is empty by default. I want that property to get value from previous view controller. But I am unable to get index value in "prepareForSegue" method. Here's what I have coded:

TableView

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> ProjectTableViewCell {

let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("ProjectViewCell", forIndexPath:indexPath) as! ProjectTableViewCell

// Remove indenting of cell
cell.separatorInset = UIEdgeInsetsZero
cell.layoutMargins = UIEdgeInsetsZero

// Set project name
cell.ProjectName.text = self.ProjectsArray[indexPath.row] as? String

// Set action button
cell.ActionButton.tag = indexPath.row
cell.ActionButton.addTarget(self, action: #selector(ProjectsController.projectActions(_:)), forControlEvents: .TouchUpInside)

return cell

}


Button Action Sheet

@IBAction func projectActions(sender: UIButton) {
let index = sender.tag

let optionMenu = UIAlertController(title: nil, message: self.ProjectsArray[index] as? String, preferredStyle: .ActionSheet)

// Report Progress
let reportProgressAction = UIAlertAction(title: "Report Progress", style: .Default, handler: {
(alert: UIAlertAction!) -> Void in
self.performSegueWithIdentifier("ShowReportProgress", sender: self)
})

// Cancel
let cancelAction = UIAlertAction(title: "Cancel", style: .Cancel, handler: {
(alert: UIAlertAction!) -> Void in

})

optionMenu.addAction(reportProgressAction)
optionMenu.addAction(cancelAction)

self.presentViewController(optionMenu, animated: true, completion: nil)
}


Perform Segue

override func prepareForSegue(segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: AnyObject?) {

let index = sender?.tag

if segue.identifier == "ShowReportProgress"
{
let upcoming: ReportProgressController = segue.destinationViewController as! ReportProgressController

let ProjectName = self.ProjectsArray[index!] as? String --> Here it says: fatal error: unexpectedly found nil while unwrapping an Optional value
upcoming.ProjectName = ProjectName!
}

}


Any help?

Answer

In this line

self.performSegueWithIdentifier("ShowReportProgress", sender: self)

you are passing self which represents the view controller. You probably mean to pass the button.

self.performSegueWithIdentifier("ShowReportProgress", sender: sender)

You should always use optional bindings to avoid crashes and unwrap values which are guaranteed to exist.

if let button = sender where segue.identifier == "ShowReportProgress" {
    let upcoming: ReportProgressController = segue.destinationViewController as! ReportProgressController

    let ProjectName = self.ProjectsArray[button.tag] as! String
    upcoming.ProjectName = ProjectName
}
