How to show an action sheet

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Updated for Xcode 12.5

SwiftUI gives us the ActionSheet view for creating action sheets for the user to choose from, and it works similarly to alerts.

As with alerts, you need to define a property that will track whether the action sheet should be visible or not. Then, use the actionSheet() modifier to monitor that property, and show an action sheet of your choose when the condition becomes true.

Important: Action sheets are not available on macOS.

For example, here is an example view that triggers an action sheet when a button is tapped:

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var showingSheet = false

    var body: some View {
        Button("Show Action Sheet") {
            showingSheet = true
        .actionSheet(isPresented: $showingSheet) {
                title: Text("What do you want to do?"),
                message: Text("There's only one choice..."),
                buttons: [.default(Text("Dismiss Action Sheet"))]
