iOS Swift 2.0 Enumerations and Optionals Introduction to Enumerations Enums and Objects

Enums and object challenge 1

Needing a bit of help not quite understanding what it wants me to do.

"In the editor below you have two objects - a struct named Point and a class named Robot. The Robot stores its location as a point instance and contains a move function.

The task of this challenge is to complete the implementation for move. Move takes a parameter of type Direction which is an enumeration listing the possible movement directions.

When you tell the robot to move up (by specifying Direction.Up as the argument), the y coordinate should increase by 1. Similarly moving down means the y coordinate decreases by 1, moving right means the x coordinate increases by 1 and finally left means x decreases by 1."

Depending on the direction of the move, you're going to increment or decrement the robot's location x or y coordinate. Let me know if you need more than that.

Ok finally got it thank you :)

What was the correct code?

Never mind, I got it:

  switch direction {
        case .Up: location.y += 1
        case .Down: location.y -= 1
        case .Right: location.x += 1
        case .Left: location.x -= 1
        }```

switch direction {
        case .up: location.y += 1
        case .down: location.y -= 1
        case .right: location.x += 1
        case .left: location.x -= 1
        }
