How to fix “Missing argument for parameter 'content' in call”

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Fully updated for Xcode 11.2

This usually happens because you created the wrong kind of view by accident, and rather than using a simple view instead created a container that expected some content inside it.

Try looking for code like this:

VStack()

VStack expects to have something inside it, so at the very least that ought to read as follows:

VStack {
    EmptyView()
}
