Pass an array of subviews to a view

Forums > SwiftUI


I have created a Swift Package that creates multiple PageTabViews from an array of content that is passed to it:

import SwiftUI

public struct WhatsNewView<Content: View>: View {

    let content: [Content]

    public init(content: [Content]){
        self.content = content

    public var body: some View {
        TabView {
            ForEach(0..<content.count, id: \.self) { pageNum in
                WhatsNewPage(content: content[pageNum], pageNum: pageNum + 1, totalPages: content.count)
        .indexViewStyle(PageIndexViewStyle(backgroundDisplayMode: .always))

When I call it I want to pass in any kind of simple or complex view to fill each page. Right now, I can pass in an array of simple text views like so:

import SwiftUI
import WhatsNew

struct mFood_Vendor: App {
    @State var showWhatsNew = false
    let whatsNew = WhatsNew()

    var page1 = Text("Hello World")

    var page2 = Text("Goodbye World")

    var body: some Scene {
        WindowGroup {
            .fullScreenCover(isPresented: $showWhatsNew, content: {
                let content = [page1, page2]
                WhatsNewView(content: content)
            .onAppear(perform: {
                whatsNew.checkForUpdate(showWhatsNew: $showWhatsNew)


I want page1 and page2 to be whatever content a person wants to see on the What's New pages. But if I change those vars to anything different, like a text and an Image, I get a "Failed to produce diagnostic for expression" error.

Ideally, I would like to be able to pass in something like:

struct page1: View {
    var body: some View {
      VStack {

Any help would be appreciated. THANKS!
