SOLVED: How to pass data from AppDelegate down into View

Forums > macOS

Good morning

Found only older examples of how to pass down data from AppDelegate which all don't work of course anymore (o;

What is the correct way to publish data from an AppDelegate function to handle it in a View?

thanks in advance richard


Simple and effective...just declare the var outside of App so it can be passed down inside App but also modified within APpDelegate (o;

class Address: ObservableObject {
    @Published var name = ""
    @Published var street = ""
    @Published var number = ""
    @Published var address2 = ""
    @Published var zip = ""
    @Published var city = ""

var address = Address()

struct BarcoderApp: App {
    @NSApplicationDelegateAdaptor private var appDelegate: AppDelegate

    var body: some Scene {
        WindowGroup {
            ContentView(address: address)

So now address is updated within the View either during launch but also when already running...

There might be another solution..but as it works I don't care (for now ;o)
