Yet don’t be anxious; you could convert a String’s contents to an Int or Double, with no kind casting: click on right here to view code photo 17> var myConvertedInt = s. toInt() myConvertedInt: Int? = 123 18> The String variety has a distinct procedure for changing its contents to an integer: toInt(). this technique evaluates the string’s contents and if it contains characters composed of a sound integer, it presents the integer illustration. on-line 17, myConvertedInt is asserted and assigned an Int worth at the similar line. you're most likely wondered by way of the Int? proven in Swift’s reaction for line 17, and rightly pondering “What is that query mark doing there? ” It’s a hallmark that myConvertedInt is a unique kind of Int: an non-compulsory Int. We’ll speak much more approximately optionals later, yet for now, simply recognize that they enable a variable to tackle a distinct price referred to as nil. Being particular Having fast infer the kind of your variables or constants is beautiful convenient. You don’t need to inform speedy what an integer is, or what a bunch with a fractional part is—it simply is familiar with. besides the fact that, occasionally it's your decision to explicitly claim a variable or consistent to be a definite kind. speedy permits you to put up for sale the sort as a part of the statement: click on right here to view code snapshot 18> var myNewNumber : Double = three myNewNumber: Double = three 19> pointing out a variable or consistent with a particular sort is as effortless as including a colon, by way of the kind identify, after the variable or consistent identify. right here, you’ve declared myNewNumber as a Double and assigned the quantity three to it, and speedy dutifully studies the announcement. What could have occurred when you left off the : Double on-line 18? speedy could have evaluated the task, made up our minds that the worth was once an Int, and made myNewNumber that style. during this specific case, we overrode Swift’s inherent assumption, and compelled it to kind the variable in line with our needs. Let’s examine what occurs if we go away off the task of the variable or consistent to a cost: click on right here to view code picture 19> var m : Int :19:5 errors: variables at the moment should have an preliminary worth while entered on the best point of the REPL 20> allow rr : Int :20:5: mistakes: 'let' declarations require an initializer expression allow rr : Int ^ on-line 19, a variable named m was once declared to be an Int, yet didn't assign a cost at assertion time. fast back an blunders indicating that an preliminary worth needs to be assigned within the context of the REPL. at the subsequent line, the allow command broadcasts rr as an Int, yet doesn't assign a price. become aware of that speedy returns an blunders indicating that an initializer expression is needed. when you consider that constants are only that—constant—the worth needs to be assigned whilst the consistent is said. Strings and issues to date, you’ve delved a section into the numeric kinds, yet one other sort in quick is used quite a lot: the String kind. As you observed past, a string in speedy is a number of characters bounded by way of double fees (""). here's a completely legitimate statement of a string: click on the following to view code photograph 20> allow myState = "Louisiana" myState: String = "Louisiana" 21> So is that this: click on the following to view code photo 21> permit myParish : String = "St.
