How to display an image using URL?


The error is most likely that imageURL is nil. Are you assigning it a value elsewhere in the code, or is it actually @IBOutlet in the real code? If you do not assign a value to it, it will be nil - but its type of UIImageView! means it is an "implicitly unwrapped optional" which means the compiler won't stop you using it even if it is nil, but will crash at runtime with the error you're getting.

The rest of the code is correct (assuming the missing space before != is a typo not in your compiling code), but you would be better off using if let to unwrap your optionals rather than checking them against nil and then using the force-unwrap operator:

if let url = NSURL(string: "http://etc...") {    if let data = NSData(contentsOfURL: url) {        imageURL.image = UIImage(data: data)    }        }

If you happen to be using the Swift 1.2 beta, you can combine the two ifs together:

if let url  = NSURL(string: "http://etc..."),       data = NSData(contentsOfURL: url){        imageURL.image = UIImage(data: data)}

Or, if you prefer, use flatMap:

imageURL.image =    NSURL(string: "http://etc...")    .flatMap { NSData(contentsOfURL: $0) }    .flatMap { UIImage(data: $0) }


Here is my code might help you

Swift 2:

extension UIImageView{    func setImageFromURl(stringImageUrl url: String){        if let url = NSURL(string: url) {            if let data = NSData(contentsOfURL: url) {                self.image = UIImage(data: data)            }                }    }}

Swift 3:

extension UIImageView{func setImageFromURl(stringImageUrl url: String){      if let url = NSURL(string: url) {         if let data = NSData(contentsOf: url as URL) {            self.image = UIImage(data: data as Data)         }      }   }}

Usage

 let imgURL = "https://yourdomain.com/picturepath/picname.png" // or jpg self.myImage.setImageFromURl(stringImageUrl: imgURL)

if you are using HTTP connection and not https don't forget to add this

App Transport Security Settings as dictionary and into it Allow Arbitrary Loads as Boolean with value YES like in the below figureenter image description here


Here I have an approach from which you will not get any kind of crash when downloading image.Now currently you are using the following code:

override func viewDidLoad() {    super.viewDidLoad()    let url = NSURL(string:"http://cdn.businessoffashion.com/site/uploads/2014/09/Karl-Lagerfeld-Self-Portrait-Courtesy.jpg")    let data = NSData(contentsOfURL:url!)    if data!= nil {        imageURL.image = UIImage(data:data!)    }}

Now change the code with this one, If you are continue with this approach:

override func viewDidLoad() {    super.viewDidLoad()    let url = NSURL(string:"http://cdn.businessoffashion.com/site/uploads/2014/09/Karl-Lagerfeld-Self-Portrait-Courtesy.jpg")    let data = NSData(contentsOfURL:url!)     // It is the best way to manage nil issue.     if data.length > 0 {        imageURL.image = UIImage(data:data!)    } else {        // In this when data is nil or empty then we can assign a placeholder image         imageURL.image = UIImage(named: "placeholder.png")    }}

And I am sure that If you are used it your nil crash will be solved.
