Working with containers

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Fully updated for Xcode 11.2

SwiftUI is designed to be composed right out of the box, which means you can place one view inside another as much as you need.

This is particularly useful when working with the major container views we’re used to, such as navigation controllers and tab bar controllers. We can place any views we want right into another container view, and SwiftUI will adapt its layout automatically.

In this regard, SwiftUI’s own containers – NavigationView, TabbedView, Group, and more – are no different from containers we make with our own view composition.
