SOLVED: Small, Medium & large home screen widgets

Forums > SwiftUI

Hello, Just look to confirm something. I have developed a Large home screen widget. I've used different versions of that code to create a Medium and Small versions. I'm not sure how how I can implement the small and medium widgets. Do I need to use WidgetBundle to do this? Thank you!


I am assuming that you are already using WidgetKit (as you have written a widget). You will also need to use .widgetFamily.

@Environment(\.widgetFamily) var family

and switch on the family to select the appropriate widget to display.

Have a look at the UlitmatePortfolio videos 42 and 43, which should give you some additional pointers.

Bear in mind that currently (19-May-2023) those videos are for the previous app created for the UltimatePortfolio, and not the current 2023 app (whose videos will appear in due course). Also, things might be a bit more swifty, rather than UI, now in Xcode 14.x.


Great, thanks. I'll look into this. Thanks for the clarification.
