What is an expected declaration?

var tshirt = Clothing(title: "Vintage", price: 49.99, designer: "Prada")

1 Answer

The error message "expected declaration" simply means that there exists a value that has not been either initialized nor declared with the keywords let or var. For example, if I were to type the following in a playground, the error message would say something along the lines of "expected declaration".

myVariable = 42

It would be corrected by 'declaring' myVariable as either a variable or a constant like this:

var myVariable = 42
