dismissSearch not working for macOS

Forums > macOS

How do I get @Envoirment to work in macOS? Here is a snippet of code below which should just be a basic navigationView with a searchbar in the top trailing position which should in theory trigger the text to switch between searching/not searching and when you press return it should defocus the searchfield and also print to console the text.

Currently, it lays out correctly but isSearching doesn't update and dismissSearch() doesn't work either. Any suggestions?

struct ContentView: View {
    @State var searchText = ""

    @Environment(\.isSearching) var isSearching
    @Environment(\.dismissSearch) var dismissSearch

    var body: some View {
        NavigationView {
            List {
                Text("Search Bar")
            VStack(alignment: .center) {
                Text(isSearching ? "Searching" : "Not Searching")
            .searchable(text: $searchText, placement: .toolbar)
            .onSubmit(of: .search) {
