Protocols can also work with placeholder types. In this video, learn about associated types.
- [Instructor] So far, we've looked at the benefits of…genetic types and functions and how to use them.…How about protocols?…Lets take a look at the Binary Representable protocol.…It defines requirements for any type that can hold…binary data and uses a deck to identify it.…Wouldn't it be great to create a protocol…that is not not restricted to the data pack?…Swift lets us do that.…I'll create a new playground page for this project.…Let's call it "Associated Type".…
I'm going to clean up…because we only need to import the foundation framework.…Next, I'm going to create a new protocol…called "Any Representable".…Protocol, any representable.…I declare an associated type called "Content Type".…The associated type keyword let's us define…placeholder types.…A place holder type is unknown until…a conforming type provides it.…
Then, I add a tag which is of type "String".…Get bar and set bar.…Then, we'll add a content property.…However, for this property…I'm going to use the place holder type…and let's make it read-only.…
