1. Fix Use Of Unresolved Identifier ‘RootViewController’ In Xcode Swift Project Error Steps.

  1. First i create another new cocoa touch class in the project, the class name is TestViewController, it is saved in TestViewController.swift file. This is a whole new class, so i want to test whether the error exist when use this class.
  2. Then i write below code in SceneDelegate.swift file to create an instance of the TestViewController class, and i found the error do not exist at all. So i think, this error is not because of the old RootViewController class, maybe because of the Xcode build cache.
    var testVC : TestViewController = TestViewController()
  3. Then i click Xcode Product —> Clean Build Folder menu item at Xcode top menu bar to clean the build folder. And then click Product —> Build menu item to build the project again. And now the above error disappear with the source code var rootVC : RootViewController = RootViewController() . So the error is because of the Xcode project build cache, what you need to do is just clean the build folder and build it again.
