SOLVED: How to make the red button terminate the app rather than just close the window

Forums > SwiftUI

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to make the red 'close' button in the top left corner of macOS apps terminate the app instead of just closing the window using SwiftUI. My googling has failed me on this one.


Add an AppDelegate and implement applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed(_:)


Thanks so much that's worked.
