SwiftUI numberpad(TextField) fail to update the binding variable

Forums > SwiftUI

Hello guys, I am trying to create a Textfield which allows user to enter information and update the binding variable. Generally, user needs to hit the "return" button after entering the data, so that the compiler will update the data. However, I am now using number pad which have no "return" button. Hence, the compiler fail to update the binding object. What should I do ?

Here is my code:

            class UserSettings: ObservableObject {
                  @Published var cost = 0

            @EnvironmentObject var usersettings: UserSettings

                  TextField("Please enter here", value: $usersettings.cost, formatter: NumberFormatter())
                    .overlay(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 10).stroke(Color("DB"),lineWidth: 1))

The cost keep on showing 0 (where the initial value of cost is = 0) after entering a new value.

Thank you so much


Why do you not add a button that user will tap when updated

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var amount = ""

    var body: some View {
        HStack {
            TextField("Enter Amount", text: $amount)

            Button("Enter") {
                // do something

or you can do by using an extension on Binding that was used in HWS+ but that more complicated.
