SOLVED: Array Filtering

Forums > SwiftUI

Let's say I have an array of objects, like so:

  "name": "david",
  "type": "human"
  "name": "chris",
  "type": "human"
  "name": "thor",
  "type": "god"
  "name": "wolverine",
  "type": "mutant"

Now I have another array, like so:

["human", "puppy", "automobile"]

How can I get all the objects from the first array that have a type value that exists in the second array?


Assuming the shape of your data object from that JSON:

import Foundation

struct CharacterData {
    let name: String
    let type: String

//presumably the data would normally be loaded from some JSON
//but for sake of example I'm just building it manually
let characters: [CharacterData] = [
    CharacterData(name: "David", type: "human"),
    CharacterData(name: "Chris", type: "human"),
    CharacterData(name: "Thor", type: "god"),
    CharacterData(name: "Wolverine", type: "mutant"),

let filteredCharacters = characters.filter {
    ["human", "puppy", "automobile"].contains($0.type)





Just a follow-up to say that this is exactly what I needed and works perfectly. Thanks again.
