SOLVED: Unable to correctly format the background color of a view

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi Experts!

I have a view, example below. I simply want to color the background by as you can see in the linked screenshot the background fill is not taking inti accout the rounbded corners of the border. I can't figure out how to fix this. Any advise , greatly welcomed!

                     VStack {
                            Text("\(ap.Percent[0], specifier: "%.0f")%")
                                .frame(maxWidth: .infinity, alignment: .center)
                                .font(.system(size: 40, weight: .heavy, design: .rounded))
                            Text("HI HWS!")
                                .font(.system(size: 13, weight: .light, design: .rounded))
                            RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 16)
                                .stroke(Color.myPurple, lineWidth: 2)


put the background after the .overlay


That just gives me a grey box, content is not visable, and still not respecting the rounded corners of the view.


Hi, For the background fill to take into account the rounded corners you could add a clipshape at the end.

.clipShape(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 16))
