Go to view that called modal view.

In Xcode (swift), once I call a modal view, how do I go back to the view that called the modal view?

In the viewController for your modal view add a dismiss function like so:

    @IBAction func dismiss(_ sender: Any) {
        dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)

Would this be before or after viewDidLoad?

Comment edited. See below for edit.

I added the IBAction before the viewDidLoad and it worked.
