Swift Language Typealias typealias for closures with parameters


typealias SuccessHandler = (NSURLSessionDataTask, AnyObject?) -> Void

This code block creates a type alias named SuccessHandler, just in the same way var string = "" creates a variable with the name string.

Now whenever you use SuccessHandler, for example:

func example(_ handler: SuccessHandler) {}

You are essentilly writing:

func example(_ handler: (NSURLSessionDataTask, AnyObject?) -> Void) {}
