down casting user to customUser after user query to obtain an attribute

I am trying to look up a use through the user query method and then downcast the user to CustomUser to be able to retrieve the profilePicId in  CustomUser collection but it does not seem to work.Below is my code



func getHostProfilePicId(username : String){

   if let user = Kinvey.sharedClient.activeUser{

     let userQuery = UserQuery{

       $0.username = email

     }

       user.lookup(userQuery) {

          if let users = users {

             let foundUser = users[0] as? CustomUser  

             print(foundUser?,profilePicId)

          }

       }

   }


}


From the code above I proceed to print (foundUser?.profilePicId) but I get nil.Same with foundUser.I do get a user at array index 0 but the downcast is not working.How do i go about this?

 

    }

Bkwart,

  1. How are you storing "profilePicId" in user collection? Is it a string or int?
  2. Can you share custom user class definition? Just want to check how you have added/mapped "profilePicId" in class definition?
  3. What version of the Kinvey SDK you are using?


Thanks,

1. I am storing it as a string

2 class CustomUser: User{

   var profilePicId : String?

   var firstName : String?

   var lastName : String?


    override fun mapping(map : Map){

        super.mapping(map: map)

        profilePidId <- map["profilePidId"]

        firstName <- map["firstName"]

        lastName <- map["lastName"]

    } 

}

 3. SDK v3.3.8,

Bkwart,


Check spelling of "profilePicId" in your mapping function. I assume this might be because of the spellchecker. You have written "profilePidId".
