OS X app doesn't launch new window on dock icon press in Swift

I am making a Mac app in Swift, and running into a problem. When my app is first launched from the terminated state, it automatically launches a new window. But if the user

s out of my app (with the red X icon) instead of quitting it, then hits the app icon of my app, a new window doesn't automatically open.

How can I make my Mac app launch a new window every time the dock icon is hit, as long as there isn't already a window of my app open?

Add this to your App Delegate:

func applicationShouldHandleReopen(theApplication: NSApplication, hasVisibleWindows flag: Bool) -> Bool {
    if !flag {
        for window: AnyObject in {
    return true
