SOLVED: No exact matches in call to instance method 'append'

Forums > SwiftUI

Hello ! So what happens here is that there will be a first loop that just returns the first result and then stops. The idea is rather to collect all the results in an array and then return the result after the loop. But I have an error "No exact matches in call to instance method 'append' " can you help me ?

    func fetchAllFavorites() -> [Favorite] {

        let urls : [URL] = FileManager.default.urls(for: .documentDirectory, in: .userDomainMask)
        var results: [Favorite] = []
        do {
            for url in urls {
                let favoriteItem = try Data(contentsOf: url)
                let item = try JSONDecoder().decode(Favorite.self, from: favoriteItem)
                return results
        } catch {


results is an array of Favorite

favoriteItem is of the type Data

You can't add a Data type to an array that holds Favorite types

use append(item) instead


ok it's good ^^thk you
