Ios – Programmatically go back to previous ViewController in Swift


I send the user over to a page on a button click. This page is a UITableViewController.

Now if the user taps on a cell, I would like to push him back to the previous page.

I thought about something like self.performSegue("back").... but this seems to be a bad idea.

What is the correct way to do it?

Best Answer

Swift 3:

If you want to go back to the previous view controller

_ = navigationController?.popViewController(animated: true)

If you want to go back to the root view controller

_ = navigationController?.popToRootViewController(animated: true)

If you are not using a navigation controller then pls use the below code.

self.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)

animation value you can set according to your requirement.
