How to set the background color of list rows using listRowBackground()

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 13.0

SwiftUI has a dedicated modifier for setting background views behind list rows, called listRowBackground(). This accepts any kind of view – including colors, images, and shapes – and uses it behind rows.

For example, this creates a list using 10 rows, each with a red background color:

List {
    ForEach(0..<10) {
        Text("Row \($0)")
    }
    .listRowBackground(Color.red)
}

Download this as an Xcode project

A list of rows with a red background.

Tip: listRowBackground() won’t affect any parts of the list that don’t contain data.
