Swipe gesture recognizer swift

I have been looking on the internet for a few hours now on how to use the Swipe Gesture Recognizer. I do not want to code it, because I have tried nearly every single example and that doesn't work. However, I know that there is a Swipe Gesture Recognizer in the object library, but it doesn't seem to work. Can somebody please show me a link to a place where I can use the Swipe Gesture Recognizer from the Object Library or show me how to do it?



(If I am being to broad for some reason, or you don't like my question, please do not -1 this, just comment and I will make the change, please).

(Handle Swipes is the name of the function)

Here is the code:

import UIKit

class Alabama1: UIViewController {
@IBOutlet weak var label: UILabel!

override func viewDidLoad() {

let reveal = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: Selector("handleSwipes"))
let next = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: Selector("handleSwipes"))

// Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
reveal.direction = .Up
next.direction = .Left



override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
// Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

func handleSwipes(sender:UISwipeGestureRecognizer) {
if (sender.direction == .Up) {
label.text = "Motgomery"

You are missing semicolumn in adding event. Try like so:

let reveal = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: Selector("handleSwipes:"))
let next = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: Selector("handleSwipes:"))
