Swift 2: Call can throw, but it is not marked with 'try' and the error is not handled

The Solution to Swift 2: Call can throw, but it is not marked with 'try' and the error is not handled is


You have to catch the error just as you're already doing for your save() call and since you're handling multiple errors here, you can try multiple calls sequentially in a single do-catch block, like so:

func deleteAccountDetail() {
    let entityDescription = NSEntityDescription.entityForName("AccountDetail", inManagedObjectContext: Context!)
    let request = NSFetchRequest()
    request.entity = entityDescription

    do {
        let fetchedEntities = try self.Context!.executeFetchRequest(request) as! [AccountDetail]

        for entity in fetchedEntities {
            self.Context!.deleteObject(entity)
        }

        try self.Context!.save()
    } catch {
        print(error)
    }
}

Or as @bames53 pointed out in the comments below, it is often better practice not to catch the error where it was thrown. You can mark the method as throws then try to call the method. For example:

func deleteAccountDetail() throws {
    let entityDescription = NSEntityDescription.entityForName("AccountDetail", inManagedObjectContext: Context!)
    let request = NSFetchRequest()

    request.entity = entityDescription

    let fetchedEntities = try Context.executeFetchRequest(request) as! [AccountDetail]

    for entity in fetchedEntities {
        self.Context!.deleteObject(entity)
    }

    try self.Context!.save()
}
