How to fix a Form Picker or a NavigationLink that isn’t tappable

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Fully updated for Xcode 11.2

If you have a NavigationLink or Picker that isn’t working, this usually happens because SwiftUI expects the containing view to be inside a NavigationView – you might see a list row showing a disclosure indicator, but for it to appear disabled.

To fix the problem, wrap your view in a NavigationView, like this:

NavigationView {
    NavigationLink(destination: Text("Detail view")) {
        Text("Show detail view")
    }
}
