Elevate SwiftUI Skills by Building Projects

By: Frahaan Hussain

Overview of this book

Elevate SwiftUI Skills by Building Projects helps you harness the cutting-edge potential of SwiftUI and its innovative and user-friendly approach to crafting user interfaces for Apple platforms with the power of Swift. This book will enhance your UI programming skills with SwiftUI through a project-based methodology, guiding you to create four real-world projects. Starting with a quick recap of Swift and SwiftUI, you’ll gradually develop projects tailored for iPhone, iPad, macOS, and watchOS using Swift and Xcode. You’ll experience SwiftUI’s versatility in action as you build a tax calculator for iPhone and a photo gallery for the iPad, which uses a larger display to enhance the viewing experience. You’ll also create an app store for Mac and, finally, get to grips with the power of SwiftUI for smaller devices such as the Apple Watch by designing a Fitness Companion app. By the end of this book, you'll have built fully functional projects across multiple platforms and gained the expertise needed to excel as a professional SwiftUI developer.

Implementing the Activity Button Screen

In this section, we will implement our application’s activity button screen and thus complete the fourth and final project in this book. Before we do this, we must implement a swipeable page system. The first page will contain the implementation from the previous chapter, and the second page will be the activity buttons. Naturally, you can use this to expand to as many pages as you require.

Swipeable Pages

In this section, we will implement our swipeable pages. Luckily for us, it is super simple to implement as many things as possible in SwiftUI. Simply enclose our current VStack in the MainView inside a TabView as demonstrated here:

    VStack( alignment: .leading )
        Text( timerString )
            .font( .title2 )
