nextResponder in Swift 3

in Swift 2 this code works fine

override func nextResponder() -> UIResponder? {
// it's called when user make any touch event
return super.nextResponder()

it's basically helps to get notification about any user interaction.

in Swift 3 now it's a variable not a function and I can't even observe it with didSet.

so how to use the code above in Swift 3


You can override the variable:

override var next: UIResponder? {
    get {
        // do something

As the variable is defined as a read-only variable, implementing didSet doesn't make sense. You're not supposed to set this variable. Instead, different subclasses of UIResponder can override the variable and return different values. The base class returns nil.

Note: The variable is called next in Swift 3 and nextResponder in Objective-C and earlier Swift versions. This can be seen in the documentation when you switch between Swift and Objective-C in the right column.
