var searchResults = [String]()
@IBOutlet weak var searchTable: UITableView!
@IBOutlet weak var mySearchBar: UISearchBar!
override func viewDidLoad() {


func tableView(tableView: UITableView, numberOfRowsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
return searchResults.count

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

let cell = searchTable.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("searchCell", forIndexPath: indexPath) as! UITableViewCell

when i click in the search button in the keyboard using simulator no thing is happen

i tried searchBarTextDidBeginEditing it's not working too

did i do something wrong ?

Your code is fine, but you need to set mySearchBar.delegate = self or you could do it on the storyboard, using ctrl+drag the search bar to the viewController and choosing delegate.
