How to push a new view onto a NavigationView

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 14.0 beta 1

If you have a navigation view and you want to push a new view onto SwiftUI’s navigation stack, you should use NavigationLink. This takes a destination as its first parameter and what to show inside the button as its second parameter (or as a trailing closure), and takes care of pushing the new view on the stack for us along with animation.

For example, this creates a simple SecondView struct, then presents it from a NavigationView:

struct SecondView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Text("This is the detail view")
    }
}

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        NavigationView {
            VStack {
                NavigationLink(destination: SecondView()) {
                    Text("Show Detail View")
                }
                .navigationTitle("Navigation")
            }
        }
    }
}
