I have an iOS application that uses some shared code that itself depends on a Kotlin multiplatform library. iOS.app -> shared -> library I’m trying to develop a timer that uses
CADisplayLink
in the Kotlin code. This is the code of my “timer”:
Copy code
@ThreadLocal
object AppTimer {

   fun start(){
      val selector = NSSelectorFromString("execution")
      val displayLink = CADisplayLink.displayLinkWithTarget(this, selector)
      displayLink.addToRunLoop(NSRunLoop.currentRunLoop, NSRunLoop.currentRunLoop.currentMode)
   }

   @ObjCAction
   fun execution(){
      NSLog("AppTimer::Execution through CADisplayLink")
   }
}
It works without problem if the timer code is located in the shared module. But, when I move it into the library, it throws this error:

Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening?
Found my problem. I forgot to export the library in my cocoapod:
Copy code
framework {
   baseName = "shared"
   export(project(":library"))
}

There's a better solution to make Objective-C selectors work in your Kotlin projects without forcing extra config on consumers: 1. Make the target selector class extend
NSObject
(that'd be
AppTimer
class in your case). 2. Don't use
object
as they cannot extend
NSObject
(it currently fails the compilation of the consumers…), use
class
instead (you can put a shared instance in a top-level
val
). 3. Make sure the class is public (but its constructor doesn't have to be,
internal
is fine). See example commit here: https://github.com/data2viz/data2viz/commit/9aa369fefb6c1c17ee71f6ae30356ffd15c4615f Thanks @jw for helping me get there 🙂
