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 the prospect details

We are going to create the details view next. When you tap on each card, we want to display a detailed view that shows more information about the prospect. Let's look at what this screen looks like:

I divided the details view into three parts, so it's easier to know what we are working on first. Here are the three sections:

  • Header
  • Stats
  • Info

Breaking up a design before coding is what I have been doing since UIKit, but I do it even more now in SwiftUI. We will start with the header first.

Creating a details prospect header

Now that we have a plan, let's jump into DraftPlayerDetailView and get started. After the last curly brace for the body variable, you are going to add the following:

var header: some View {
    Text("header here")
}
var info: some View {
    Text("info...
