Channel List

The ChannelListViewController contains a simple TableView that shows a list of Channels. This section will only deal with the essential functionality and not styling.

Set up the TableView like so in your viewDidLoad:

// This is the data backing the TableView
var channels = [ParticipatedChannel]()
override func viewDidLoad() {
// Get the AppDelegate which contains the Mitter object
let appDelegate = UIApplication.shared.delegate as! AppDelegate
// TableView setup
// Fetch the list of channels and display
appDelegate.mitter.channels.getChannelsForCurrentUser {
result in
switch result {
case .success(let fetchedChannels):
self.channels = fetchedChannels
print("Received all channels for logged in user")
case .error:
print("Couldn't fetch all channels for logged in user")

To render the cell, modify the UITableViewDelegate function as follows:

func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
// create a new cell if needed or reuse an old one
let cell: UITableViewCell = self.tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: cellReuseIdentifier) as UITableViewCell!
// set the text from the data model
cell.textLabel?.text = self.channels[indexPath.row].channel.channelId
return cell

To open the ChannelWindowViewController on clicking a cell:

func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) {
let storyboard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main", bundle: nil)
let channelWindowViewController = storyboard.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "channelWindowView") as! ChannelWindowViewController
channelWindowViewController.channelId = channels[indexPath.row].channel.channelId
navigationController!.pushViewController(channelWindowViewController, animated: true)
