Xcode - Finish with the exception not typed of type NSException when a button is pressed

advertisements

I'm new to app development and I'm following Apple's tutorial to learn. I've looked through a lot of questions asked about this type of error but none of them are helping me. In the tutorial, I'm stuck on the "Add Buttons to the View" section where I'm trying to implement a string to be printed out on the console when a button is tapped/clicked on. Only I get an error when doing so.

My code for the button in Swift:

import UIKit

class StarRatingControl: UIView {

    // MARK: Initialization

    required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {

        super.init(coder: aDecoder)

        let button = UIButton(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 44, height: 44))
        button.backgroundColor = UIColor.cyanColor()

        button.addTarget(self, action: "ratingButtonTapped", forControlEvents: .TouchDown)

        addSubview(button)

    }

    override func intrinsicContentSize() -> CGSize {

        return CGSize(width: 240, height: 44)

    }

    // MARK: Button Action

    func ratingButtonTapped(button: UIButton) {

        print("Button pressed!")

    }

}

The error:

I understand that Xcode keeps old references to action/outlets that I've deleted so I tried right-clicking on the View Controller in the Interface Builder to find items with the exclamation point next to them but I couldn't find anything(only troubleshooting method I know of so far). I'm using Xcode beta 7.0. Any help is appreciated!


You're missing the ":" in the selector, try the following instead:

button.addTarget(self, action: "ratingButtonTapped:", forControlEvents: .TouchDown)

I hope this help you.
