How to create a list of static items

To create a static list of items you first need to define what each row in your list should look like. This is a view just like any other, so you might write one such as this:

struct RestaurantRow: View {
    var name: String

    var body: some View {
        Text("Restaurant: \(name)")
    }
}

Now that you’ve defined what each row looks like, you can create a List view that creates as many rows as you need, like this:

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        List {
            RestaurantRow(name: "Joe's Original")
            RestaurantRow(name: "The Real Joe's Original")
            RestaurantRow(name: "Original Joe's")
        }
    }
}

When that code runs you’ll see three rows in a table, just like you would have had with UITableView in UIKit.

You don’t need to make each row use the same view type, so you can mix and match row views as you need.
