@IBAction func keyPressed(_:):
  • This is an IBAction function, meaning it is connected to a user interface element (like a UIButton) in Interface Builder. It gets triggered when the connected button is pressed.
  • The sender parameter represents the UIButton that triggered the action.

  • This function is called from the keyPressed function to play a sound.
  • It takes a soundname parameter, which is the title of the UIButton that was pressed (assuming the button's title corresponds to the name of the sound file).

Loading and Playing the Sound
  • Bundle.main.url(forResource:withExtension:) is used to get the URL of the sound file (assumed to be a WAV file) based on the provided soundname.
  • An AVAudioPlayer instance is created using the obtained URL.
  • try! is used to force-unwrap the result of AVAudioPlayer(contentsOf:). This is assuming that the sound file exists, and the URL is valid. In a production app, you might want to handle errors more gracefully.
  • The play() method is then called on the AVAudioPlayer instance to play the sound.
