Hi guys i started a swift project. I am using swipegesturerecognizer.i am trying to call a func from different class in selector. but i am getting 'NSInvalidArgumentException'
can you help me pleas ?

import Foundation
import UIKit

class helperClass {

var onBoardingImageArray : [UIImage]?
var onBoardingPageControl : UIPageControl?
var onBoardingImageView : UIImageView?

init(imageArray : [UIImage] , pageControl : UIPageControl , yourImageView : UIImageView) {
onBoardingImageArray = imageArray
onBoardingPageControl = pageControl
onBoardingImageView = yourImageView

}


@objc func firstImageSwipeGestureAction(gesture :UIGestureRecognizer){
if let swipeGesture = gesture as? UISwipeGestureRecognizer {
switch swipeGesture.direction {
case UISwipeGestureRecognizerDirection.right:
if (onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage)! > 0{
print("Swiped right")
onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage -= 1
self.onBoardingImageView?.image = onBoardingImageArray?[(onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage)!]
}

case UISwipeGestureRecognizerDirection.left:
if (onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage)! < (onBoardingImageArray?.count)! - 1{
print("Swiped left")
onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage += 1
self.onBoardingImageView?.image = onBoardingImageArray?[(onBoardingPageControl?.currentPage)!]
}
default:
break
}
}
}

}


import UIKit

class MainController: UIViewController {

override func viewDidLoad() {
super.viewDidLoad()
// Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

self.addTaped()
}

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

func addTaped(){
let helpClasses : helperClass = helperClass.init(imageArray: self.firtImageViewArray! , pageControl:firstPageControl , yourImageView: firstImageView)

let firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: helpClasses, action: #selector(helpClasses.firstImageSwipeGestureAction))
firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer.direction = .right
self.firstImageView.isUserInteractionEnabled = true
self.firstImageView.addGestureRecognizer(firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer)

let firstImageswipeGestureRecognizerLeft = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: helpClasses, action: #selector(helpClasses.firstImageSwipeGestureAction))
firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer.direction = .left
self.firstImageView.isUserInteractionEnabled = true
self.firstImageView.addGestureRecognizer(firstImageswipeGestureRecognizerLeft)


}

@IBOutlet weak var firstImageView: UIImageView!
@IBOutlet weak var firstPageControl: UIPageControl!
let firtImageViewArray : [UIImage]? = [#imageLiteral(resourceName: "Eagle9")]

}


Can you help me pleas ?

Answer Source

You are setting up everything right, but make one mistake, when you initialise your helpClasses.

Because you declare the helpClasses variable inside the scope of addTaped() function, it will be allocated on the stack. As soon as your function finishes, helpClasses variable will be deallocated, removed from the stack, and it becomes nil. From than on, you are sending messages to an object, what is nil, therefore it is understandable, that nothing happens.

To overcome on this problem, declare your variable on the heap, outside of you functions scope. Best is if you declare it on the scope of your MainController.

Example:

import UIKit

class MainController: UIViewController {

override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

    self.addTaped()
}

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

func addTaped(){
// Initialise helpclasses here, but not as a local variable!!
    helpClasses = helperClass.init(imageArray: self.firtImageViewArray! , pageControl:firstPageControl , yourImageView: firstImageView)

    let firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: helpClasses, action: #selector(helpClasses.firstImageSwipeGestureAction))
    firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer.direction = .right
    self.firstImageView.isUserInteractionEnabled = true
    self.firstImageView.addGestureRecognizer(firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer)

    let firstImageswipeGestureRecognizerLeft = UISwipeGestureRecognizer(target: helpClasses, action: #selector(helpClasses.firstImageSwipeGestureAction))
    firstImageswipeGestureRecognizer.direction = .left
    self.firstImageView.isUserInteractionEnabled = true
    self.firstImageView.addGestureRecognizer(firstImageswipeGestureRecognizerLeft)


}

  @IBOutlet weak var firstImageView: UIImageView!
  @IBOutlet weak var firstPageControl: UIPageControl!
  let firtImageViewArray : [UIImage]? = [#imageLiteral(resourceName: "Eagle9")]
  // Move your helpClasses variable here
  var helpClasses: helperClass!
}
