SOLVED: Not seeing print in debugger window

Forums > iOS

I don't see anything in the debugger window. Shouldn't I see: "The time is now (time)") 5 times with the current time? Why don't I see that?

The page I am on is "Triggering events repeatedly using a timer" from Hacking with iOS: Swift Edition

My code is exactly as on the webpage tuturial.

Apologies as I'm still trying to navigagate this forum. I'm not sure which category of the forum to post this in so this is my best effort.


Hi @huedoku

Are you running it in a simulator? You will not see anything in the console until then.


I did not know that, thank you for responding NigelGee.
