Overview of this book

Released by Apple during WWDC 2019, SwiftUI provides an innovative and exceptionally simple way to build user interfaces for all Apple platforms with the power of Swift. This practical guide involves six real-world projects built from scratch, with two projects each for iPhone, iPad, and watchOS, built using Swift programming and Xcode. Starting with the basics of SwiftUI, you’ll gradually delve into building these projects. You’ll learn the fundamental concepts of SwiftUI by working with views, layouts, and dynamic types. This SwiftUI book will also help you get hands-on with declarative programming for building apps that can run on multiple platforms. Throughout the book, you’ll work on a chart app (watchOS), NBA draft app (watchOS), financial app (iPhone), Tesla form app (iPhone), sports news app (iPad), and shoe point-of-sale system (iPad), which will enable you to understand the core elements of a SwiftUI project. By the end of the book, you’ll have built fully functional projects for multiple platforms and gained the knowledge required to become a professional SwiftUI developer.

Designing dashboard module views

We have prototyped our entire app and now it is time to slowly add in each design element. As we have done throughout the book, we will first do this together and then I will challenge you to do it on your own. Let's first move to HomeDashboardView and work on this view first.

Video player with a grid

We know from our design that our HomeDashboardView has a video player with a grid. We already have the base of this created; we just need to swap out a couple of things to make this work.

Open HomeDashboardView and copy the VStack component out of the topRow variable and paste it into the body variable in VideoModuleView. Now, update previews to the following:

.previewLayout(.fixed(width: 1024, height: 350))

Inside of VideoModuleView(), locate the following Rectangle(), which we just copied over from HomeDashboardView:

    .frame(width: 578, height: 324)
