Variable expected when accessing static var

(wdb) #1

Target (If relevant): iOS
I am trying to store the current selected Client using a static var on the model class like Client.current = client but when I am compiling I am getting an error: Variable expected on that line. I am not sure why?

Total code:

        let client = Client(id: "1", name: "Client")
        Client.current = client

Expected Behavior:
Able to compile the project without compiler errors

Actual Behavior:
I am getting a compiler error when trying to compile the code

Please a find reproducible project attached (119.3 KB)

What is Client, a struct? of so, stardust declared with let are read-only; you need to declare them with var for them to be mutable.

It’s defined as listed below as you can see the current-property is a var already. I don’t think that my client-variable which has an instance of Client-struct is a let should be an issue here.

final public struct Client {
    let id: String
    let name: String

    init(id: String, name: String) { = id = name


extension Client {
    static var current: Client!
