onTap gesture on the whole screen except TextField

Forums > SwiftUI


I would like to cancel a user input using a TextField when one taps anywhere on the screen but this TextField. Is that possible?

Thanks Alessandro


if you use a zstack and place a button (using maxwidth and maxheight frame modifier) behind your textfield


Wouldn't that do the opposite of what I am looking for? What I am looking for is a SwiftUI equivalent to the UIKit "tap outside"


Sorry I think I may have read thr question wrong the first time.

so you'd like it so that if the user is typing in a textfield and the keyboard is up then they can tap anywhere else on the screen and the cursor will move out of the textfield and the keyboard will go down?

is that right or have I misunderstood?
