Swift Question

geocoder.geocodeAddressString no longer works with swift update today

https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/mac/releasenotes/General/APIDiffsMacOSX10_11/Swift/CoreLocation.html

shows that there were a couple of changes

func geocodeAddressString(_ addressString: String!, completionHandler completionHandler: CLGeocodeCompletionHandler!)


to:

func geocodeAddressString(_ addressString: String, completionHandler completionHandler: CLGeocodeCompletionHandler)


my code was:

var geocoder = CLGeocoder()

geocoder.geocodeAddressString("\(event!.street), \(event!.city), \(event!.country)", completionHandler: {(placemarks: [AnyObject]!, error: NSError!) -> Void in
if let placemark = placemarks?[0] as? CLPlacemark {
self.event!.lat = placemark.location!.coordinate.latitude
self.event!.long = placemark.location!.coordinate.longitude

self.event!.getMiles(self.currentLocation!.location!.coordinate.latitude, clong: self.currentLocation!.location!.coordinate.longitude)
var mile = self.event!.miles != nil ? NSString(format: "%.1f miles", self.event!.miles!) : "Location services off"
self.milesButton.setTitle(mile as String, forState: .Normal)
}
})


tried:

var geocoder = CLGeocoder()
let address = "\(event!.street), \(event!.city), \(event!.country)"
geocoder.geocodeAddressString(address, completionHandler: {(placemarks: [CLPlacemark]) in
let placemark = placemarks[0]
self.event!.lat = placemark.location!.coordinate.latitude
self.event!.long = placemark.location!.coordinate.longitude
self.event!.getMiles(self.currentLocation!.location!.coordinate.latitude, clong: self.currentLocation!.location!.coordinate.longitude)
var mile = self.event!.miles != nil ? NSString(format: "%.1f miles", self.event!.miles!) : "Location services off"
self.milesButton.setTitle(mile as String, forState: .Normal)
})


it just keeps saying that its not allowed. tried a few different combinations. this is do to the latest update to xcode / swift

thanks in advance

Answer

Use geocodeAddressString this way:

geocoder.geocodeAddressString(address, completionHandler: {(placemarks: [CLPlacemark]?, error: NSError?) -> Void in

})

And it will work fine.
