Unrecognized Selector Sent to Instance

Exception NSException * "-[UIView setDelegate:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7f82d74110c0" 0x0000600000826760

Hello! I am very new to Swift and could really use some guidance as I am getting started. I have done my best to try to solve this using tutorials and other resources. I keep getting this error when I try to run. Thank you in advance and please be kind, I am learning!

This is the message I am receiving:

HERE IS THE CODE:

import UIKit

@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
    // Override point for customization after application launch.
    return true
}

// MARK: UISceneSession Lifecycle

func application(_ application: UIApplication, configurationForConnecting connectingSceneSession: UISceneSession, options: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) -> UISceneConfiguration {
    // Called when a new scene session is being created.
    // Use this method to select a configuration to create the new scene with.
    return UISceneConfiguration(name: "Default Configuration", sessionRole: connectingSceneSession.role)
}

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didDiscardSceneSessions sceneSessions: Set<UISceneSession>) {
    // Called when the user discards a scene session.
    // If any sessions were discarded while the application was not running, this will be called shortly after application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions.
    // Use this method to release any resources that were specific to the discarded scenes, as they will not return.
}

}

Your app delegate looks fine. The problem is elsewhere, perhaps in The_Golf_ClubViewController. I’m probably getting the terminology wrong, but “unrecognized selector” means you’re asking an Objective-C object or class to run a function that it doesn’t implement. (Functions work differently in Objective-C than in Swift and therefore use different terminology like “selector”.) In this case, you are asking UIView or perhaps an instance thereof to run a function called setDelegate. Because there is no implementation, the crash happens.

To see what line is causing the crash, you could set an exception breakpoint and rerun. This is the first thing I do when I see a crash bubble up to the app delegate.

As as aside, Swift symbols generally use, by convention, camel case rather than snake case. TheGolfClubViewController is an example of camel case.
