SOLVED: How to stop DatePicker closing a Navigation Link automatically?

Forums > SwiftUI

I have this navigation link here:

NavigationLink("Add End"){
       ChangeDate(hibernation: $item)

(hibernation is an Array)

It leeds to this view with a form and a Date Picker:

struct ChangeDate: View{
    @Environment(\.presentationMode) var presentationMode
    @Binding var hibernation: Hibernation
    var body: some View {
                    DatePicker("EndDate", selection: $hibernation.endDate, displayedComponents: .date)

                    hibernation.showEnd = true

                } .padding()

My problem is that the Datepicker() when a date is selected dismisses the view. I would like the view to stay up so the user can finalise their selection and click the submit button. How do i do this?

Thankyou in advance!


I can't reproduce this behavior with what you've presented here. Mind posting some more code?



There are these modifiers: I don't think that will effect it but..

  .clipShape(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5))

The navigation Link is in this forEach:

 ForEach($hibernations.items, id: \.self){ $item in

I have another similar navigation Link that one works fine the only difference is that that one has other pickers.

However ever with another picker it still dismisses when a date is selected or the other picker is used
