How to fix “Cannot convert value of type '() -> ()' to expected argument type '() -> _’”

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 14.0 beta 1

This rather confusing error message usually happens because you created a container but forgot to include some content inside it – you were probably just experimenting, and wrote code like this:

    VStack {

    }

If you just want a placeholder while you’re working on something else, use an EmptyView to keep the compiler happy, like this:

VStack {
    EmptyView()
}
