SIGABRT in Chapter 4, p. 71

Just after adding the UIHostingController(coder: coder… code to the @IBSegueAction, I run and get SIGABRT. Not sure why. I’ve compared to final code and cannot find differences. I’m running XCode 11.2.1 on Catalina 10.15.1. Debug below. FYI, the text sometimes directs us to certain files, but it is not always clear which ones. The fact that we are using the BullsEye and RGBullsEye over many chapters can be confusing. Please reference with keen specificity. For instance, p. 68 mentions RGBullsEye from Chpt 2 and Chpt 3 in folder. I only see one RGBullsEye. Then on the next page, we are dragging from the finder. I’m hoping the one I got was correct, but how would I know?

hi! there’s only one RGBullsEye project in the starter folder: I’ll edit the text to say “modified with a few of the improvements from Chapter 3”. Sorry for the confusion.

the screenshot shows the RGBullsEye project open in Finder, with ContentView.swift selected, and an arrow indicating where to drag it. Hopefully, if it’s clear there’s only one RGBullsEye project, then It will be clear which file to drag.

However, I’ve noticed that sometimes the “Copy items if needed” doesn’t work. Check the File Inspector for ContentView.swift in your BullsEye project, to make sure it really is in BullsEye/BullsEye.

I can’t reproduce your SIGABRT, even if I change a letter in openRGBullsEye, the console shows a message, but the app only hangs, with no SIGABRT or call stack.

At what point do you get the SIGABRT? when you tap Play RGBullsEye?

Does the final project run OK?

Thanks for responding. The problem was happening when I pressed the Play RGBullsEye button. However, it is no longer happening. I disconnected everything and reworked steps 3 and 4. Now it works. Yesterday, I scrutinized the code carefully, but perhaps I made some erroneous connection; or, maybe was just a fluke. Who knows? Either way it is working now.

I appreciate how much work you and your team put into these books, and it feels comforting to know that the authors take pride in their work and want to make a great product. Thanks!

thanks for the update! catalina and Xcode are still a little flaky, even the non-beta versions, but their phantom problems are usually less specific than what you got. glad it’s working now :slight_smile:
