Creating levels/ Generate levels


I am in the process of making an question-app in Swift. And I have made much of it, but I'm missing an important part. Namely, being able to generate new questions to the user without having to make a View Controller for each question. What I want is, therefore, only to have one View Controller, consisting of 3 labels and 3 buttons, and then load new questions to the View Controller.

Are there any good suggestions for where I can learn/read about this, or some suggestions on how i should handle this problem?.

Hope my question makes sense, otherwise please write and ask into it.

Why not create a struct, then create a list of questions. After you have completed that you can create an array from the questions. Then create a function that will loop through the array. You can do this is a few ways.. below is a simple example:

struct Question {
  var askQuestion: String
  var answer: String

var firstQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "When was swift released?", answer: "June 2, 2014")
var secondQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "Who Designed Swift?", answer: "Chris Lattner & many other programmers")
var thirdQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "When was Swift 1.1 released?", answer: "October 22, 2014")
var forthQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "True or False: Swift and Objective-C code can be used in a single program", answer: "True!")
var fifthQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "Swift uses what to manage memory.", answer: "Automatic Reference Counting (ARC)")
var sixthQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "Use ______ to make a constant", answer: "let")
var seventhQuestion = Question(askQuestion: "Use ______ to make a variable", answer: "var")

var studyQuestions = [firstQuestion, secondQuestion, thirdQuestion, forthQuestion,fifthQuestion, sixthQuestion, seventhQuestion]
var questionIndex = -1

func nextQuestion() -> Question {


    if questionIndex == studyQuestions.endIndex {

        questionIndex = 0

    return studyQuestions[questionIndex]
