Does XCodes Swift have the equivalent of .NETs 'with'?

In VB.NET they have a very useful feature 'with'


Dim Dog as new Animal
With Dog
    .Legs = 4
    .Tail = 1
    .Eyes = 2
End With

Open in new window

It prevents a lot of typing when you're accessing the same object many times.

Does XCodes Swift have a similar feature?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No it does not.  I could not find any references where other people can confirm this for Swift, but I found at least 2 for Objective C.

I read those and they basically say that it doesn't exist for Objective C either.

That's a shame.  It's a really handy feature that I miss quite a lot.
