How to round the corners of a view

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 13.0

Any SwiftUI view can have its corners rounded using the cornerRadius() modifier. This takes a simple value in points that controls how pronounced the rounding should be.

So, you can create a text view with 15-point rounded corners like this:

Text("Round Me")
    .padding()
    .background(Color.red)
    .cornerRadius(15)

Download this as an Xcode project

The text “Round Me” in a red rounded rectangle.

You can automatically round the shortest edge fully by using the clipShape() modifier with a Capsule, like this:

Text("Round Me")
    .padding()
    .background(Color.red)
    .clipShape(Capsule())

Download this as an Xcode project

The text “Round Me” in a red capsule or pill shape.
