Check if Array is Empty

This code example demonstrates a couple of ways how to check if array of elements is empty. To be a little more specific this code will demonstrate how to :

  • Create an array with 5 elements
  • Remove all elements from array
  • Check if array is empty
  • Check if number of elements in array is greater than zero
// Initialize Array with 5 elements
var myArray = [1, 2 , 3, 4, 5]

// Remove all elements from an array
myArray.removeAll()

// Check if Array is empty
if myArray.isEmpty {
    print("Array is empty")
} else {
    print("Array is not empty")
}

// Another way to check if Array is empty
if myArray.count > 0 {
    print("Array is empty")
} else {
    print("Array is not empty")
}
