I'm very new to Swift language, I have a C# Background.

and I'm wondering if there is an equivalent code for C# using statement in swift Language

using( var a = new MyClass()){
//Code Here

Swift's automatic reference counting guarantees deterministic deinitalization (unlike the CLR's garbage collector), so you can put clean up code in your class' deinit method. This is exactly like RAII in C++. This technique works even if an exception is thrown.

class MyClass() {
    var db = openDBConnection() //example resource

    deinit() {

func foo() {
    var a = MyClass()
    print(a) // do stuff with a

    // the (only) reference, a, will go out of scope,
    // thus the instance will be deinitialized.

You can also use a defer statement:

var a = MyClass()
defer { a.cleanUp() /* cleanup a however you wish */ }

You lose the standardization of using an Interface like IDisposable, but you gain generality in being able to execute whatever code you wish.
