SOLVED: whether this is a trailing closure?

Forums > 100 Days of Swift

in apple swiftui tutorials code

struct LandmarkList: View {
    var body: some View {
        NavigationView {
            List(landmarks) { landmark in
                NavigationLink {
                } label: {
                    LandmarkRow(landmark: landmark)

I confuse with NavigationLink. parameter is two closures.but it is not a standard trailing closure

If the last parameter to a function is a closure, Swift lets you use special syntax called trailing closure syntax. Rather than pass in your closure as a parameter, you pass it directly after the function inside braces.

those code also work,but I do not know why

import Cocoa

func TwoClosure( action1:()->String , action2:()->String ){
    print("action1 output:\(action1())");
    print("action2 output:\(action2())");

    "this is action1"
} action2:{
     "this is action2"

func AnotherClosure( action3:()->String , action4:()->String ,action5:()->String ){

} action4: {
} action5: {


Since Swift 5.3 (released in Sept 2020), we have been able to use multiple trailing closures. That's what you are seeing here.

From the docs:

If a function takes multiple closures, you omit the argument label for the first trailing closure and you label the remaining trailing closures.


I got it, Thank for you repley
