5 Create IBOutlet and Attach Table view delegate and dataSource

Now open the Right Cornor tab “show the assitant editor” and create the @IBOutlet for table view like

After that attch the tableview delegate and datasource by storyborad. (It’s also done by code)

<span class="hljs-keyword">override</span> <span class="hljs-func"><span class="hljs-keyword">func</span> <span class="hljs-title">viewDidLoad</span><span class="hljs-params">()</span></span> {
        <span class="hljs-keyword">super</span>.viewDidLoad()
        tableView.delegate = <span class="hljs-keyword">self</span>

        <span class="hljs-keyword">let</span> cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: <span class="hljs-string">"TestTableViewCell"</span>, <span class="hljs-keyword">for</span>: indexPath) <span class="hljs-keyword">as</span>! <span class="hljs-type">TestTableViewCell</span>
        cell.labelText.text = <span class="hljs-string">"TestCell <span class="hljs-subst">\(indexPath.row + <span class="hljs-number">1</span>)</span>"</span>
        <span class="hljs-keyword">return</span> cell
    <span class="hljs-func"><span class="hljs-keyword">func</span> <span class="hljs-title">numberOfSections</span><span class="hljs-params">(<span class="hljs-keyword">in</span> tableView: UITableView)</span></span> -&gt; <span class="hljs-type">Int</span> {
