Ios – How to check when a UITextField changes

iosswiftuitextfield

I am trying to check when a text field changes, equivalent too the function used for textView – textViewDidChange so far I have done this:

  func textFieldDidBeginEditing(textField: UITextField) {
        if self.status.text == "" && self.username.text == "" {
            self.topRightButton.enabled = false
        } else {   
            self.topRightButton.enabled = true
        }
    }

Which kind of works, but the topRightButton is enabled as soon as the text field is pressed on, I want it to be enabled only when text is actually typed in?

Best Solution

SWIFT

Swift 4.2

textfield.addTarget(self, action: #selector(ViewController.textFieldDidChange(_:)), for: .editingChanged)

and

@objc func textFieldDidChange(_ textField: UITextField) {

}

SWIFT 3 & swift 4.1

textField.addTarget(self, action: #selector(ViewController.textFieldDidChange(_:)), for: .editingChanged)

and

func textFieldDidChange(_ textField: UITextField) {

}

SWIFT 2.2

textField.addTarget(self, action: #selector(ViewController.textFieldDidChange(_:)), forControlEvents: UIControlEvents.EditingChanged)

and

func textFieldDidChange(textField: UITextField) {
    //your code
}

OBJECTIVE-C

[textField addTarget:self action:@selector(textFieldDidChange:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventEditingChanged];

and textFieldDidChange method is

-(void)textFieldDidChange :(UITextField *) textField{
    //your code
}
