Is it possible to change language of keyboard layout in SwiftUI?

Forums > SwiftUI

I can't find anything on changing keyboard language layout in SwiftUI when entering text in a TextField, as I've been able to do for regular Swift.

Not sure what you mean but if .keyboardType() modifier and you get a number of option see UIKeyboardType

TextField("", text: $text)
    .keyboardType(.emailAddress)

@NigelGee No, I don't mean that. I want to change keyboard language layout based on a BCP code I get from querying the system for the language locale the device is set to. I have achieved this in UIKit, but don't see an officially supported equivalent in SwiftUI.

But shouldn't the app always use the keyboard language the user has set it to?

@Hatsushira It's a language learning app, the user has the option of typing in foreign words using a foreignor native keyboard. A toggle switch allows the keyboard layout to switch between a native or foreign keyboard layout!

Ah, okay, now it makes sense for me. My guess is that you have to rely on the UIKit API because I haven't found anything on SwiftUI.
