Question or problem in the Swift programming language:
I’m attempting to share a text file with a UIActivityViewController. I’m creating and writing to my file in my app, and then allowing the user to share this file using whatever means they would like.
Currently I can access the file like this:
let text2 = String(contentsOfFile: path, encoding: NSUTF8StringEncoding) let objectsToShare = [text2] let activityVC = UIActivityViewController(activityItems: objectsToShare, applicationActivities: nil) self.presentViewController(activityVC, animated: true, completion: nil)
Which works well, but it shares a long string of the contents of the file. Instead, I would like to share the file itself. How can I do this with Swift?
How to solve the problem:
After a little more searching I came up with the solution, turns out that instead of the actual file, I should have been trying to share the URL. I replaced
let text2 = String(contentsOfFile:path, encoding: NSUTF8StringEncoding)
let activityItem:NSURL = NSURL(fileURLWithPath:path)
and it works as expected!
