NavigationLink inside DisclosureGroup

Forums > macOS

Is it possible to get a NavigationLink to work with a subitem in a DisclosureGroup?

Not intened to be useful, the following is just an example of sort of something I want to do. The first navigation link works the second doesn't even show the navigation link.



        List(selection: self.$selection) {

            NavigationLink(destination: ManuscriptView(name: "howdy")) {
                Label("Manuscript", systemImage: "book")

            DisclosureGroup("Items", isExpanded: $topExpanded) {

                NavigationLink(destination: ManuscriptView(name: "howdy")) {
                    Toggle("Toggle 1", isOn: $toggleStates.oneIsOn)



I couldnt get that to work, but I found this example which does what I need with OutlineGroup instead:

    NavigationView {

        List() {

            ForEach(data) { dataValue in

                Section(header: EmptyView()) {

                    OutlineGroup(dataValue, id: \.id, children: \.children) { item in

                        NavigationLink(destination: ManuscriptView(name: item.description)) {
                            Text ("\(item.description)").padding(.all)
        .navigationTitle("Fruits & Vegitables")


@jfranknichols it is possible - just make sure you're implementing correctly the Identifiable protocol. Instead of doing:

let id = UUID()

Make the id property be something unique, that doesn't change, and is associated to some data of that line.
