Do TextFields and Toggles always update their bound property on the MainActor?

Forums > 100 Days of SwiftUI

If I have an app that uses TextFields or Toggles where I try am trying to implement MVVM (example below) it doesn't give me any of the purple errors saying "Publishing changes from within view updates is not allowed, this will cause undefined behavior."

Does this mean that TextField and Toggle Views always update their bound property on the main actor? Or is it just something that the compiler doesn't detect, but could still cause an error somehow?


import SwiftUI

struct ContentView: View {
  @StateObject var viewModel = ViewModel(name: "", likes: true, food: "")

  var body: some View {
    Form {
      TextField("Name", text: $
      Toggle(viewModel.likes ? "Likes" : "Dislikes", isOn: $viewModel.likes)
      TextField("Food", text: $
      Text("\( \(viewModel.likes ? "Likes" : "Dislikes") \(")


import Foundation

extension ContentView {
  @MainActor class ViewModel: ObservableObject {
    @Published var name: String
    @Published var likes: Bool
    @Published var food: String

    init(name: String, likes: Bool, food: String) { = name
      self.likes = likes = food
