How to add a border to a TextField

SwiftUI’s TextField view has no styling by default, which means it’s an empty space on the screen. If that fits the style you want, great – you’re done. But many of us will prefer to add a border around the text field to make it clearer.

If you want to get the “rounded rect” text field style that we’re used to with UITextField, you should use the .textFieldStyle(RoundedBorderTextFieldStyle()) modifier, like this:

TextField("Enter some text", text: $yourBindingHere)
    .textFieldStyle(RoundedBorderTextFieldStyle())
