How to customize the submit button for TextField, SecureField, and TextEditor

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 14.0 beta 1

New in iOS 15

By default, TextField and SecureField show a simple “Return” button on the keyboard, but the submitLabel() modifier let us choose from a range of alternatives.

For example, if you wanted to show the localized form of “Join” for the button, you would use this:

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

    var body: some View {
        TextField("Username", text: $username)
            .submitLabel(.join)
    }
}

Download this as an Xcode project

A keyboard with a blue “join” button in the bottom right.

There are lots of different button options you choose from by passing different values to submitLabel():

  • continue
  • done
  • go
  • join
  • next
  • return
  • route
  • search
  • send

All those work equally well with TextField, SecureField, and TextView.
