If this is your first time working with a Phidget, we suggest starting with the Getting Started page for your specific device. This can be found in the user guide for your device. That page will walk you through installing drivers and libraries for your operating system, and will then bring you back here to use Swift specifically. Swift is capable of using the complete Phidget22 API, including events. We also provide example code in Swift for all Phidget devices.

Swift is capable of using the complete Phidget API, including events. When using it on iOS devices, however, Phidgets can only be remotely controlled over a network using the Phidget Network Service because they don't support direct USB connection.

Swift can be developed with Xcode on macOS.

Data Interval/Change Trigger - Learn about these two properties that control how much data comes in from your sensors.

Using Multiple Phidgets - It can be difficult to figure out how to use more than one Phidget in your program. This page will guide you through the steps.

Polling vs. Events - Your program can gather data in either a polling-driven or event-driven manner. Learn the difference to determine which is best for your application.

Logging, Exceptions, and Errors - Learn about all the tools you can use to debug your program.

Common Problems and Solutions / Workarounds

If you know of common problems using this lanaguage (for example, having to create sub-VIs when using multiple phidgets in labview) put them here.
