Best practice to add records to a picker selection

Forums > SwiftUI

I am using several pickers in my View that display records fetched from a DB. The user should be able to add their own values. From a functional point of view its all sorted out I am just wondering what the best practice would be where and what kind of button to add to indicate that the user can add values to the picker? I could just put a button below every picker that says "Add value" but that does not look right ...

Any recommendations/best practice?

Put the Picker in an HStack and a little +SFSymbol as a button beside the Picker?

Thanks! I actually ended up putting the Picker in an HStack with a Menu and using the Image(systemName: "ellipsis.circle") as label for the menu to indicate to the user that there are more than 1 option behind it (Create, edit, delete).
