How to bind to nested ObservableObject in SwiftUI

Issue #831 We can normally listen to sub ObservableObject by either listen to its objectWillChange or its Publisher class SubModel: ObservableObject { @Published var count = 0 } class AppModel: ObservableObject { @Published var submodel: SubModel = SubModel() private var bag = Set<AnyCancellable>() init() { submodel.$count .sink(receiveValue: { [weak self] _ in self?.objectWillChange.send() }) } } We can then make a convenient extension to ease this. We use DispatchQueue to trigger objectWillChange in another run loop, to achieve didSet behavior...

How to structure user state for App in SwiftUI

Issue #825 For many apps that require user authentication, a common practice is to define a shared UserManager with an optional User. This is convenient but it requires us to constantly unwrap and check that user class UserManager { static let shared = UserManager() private(set) var user: User? } A more safer approach is to leverage Swift type system and separate the need based on authenticated and unauthenticated usage. For example, for an unauthorized users, we show the login screen....

How ObservableObject work in SwiftUI

Issue #815 When ever a property marked with @Published change, ObservableObject will emit objectWillChange.send hence telling the View that observes it to reinvalidate. In WWDC 2021 session Discover concurrency in SwiftUI they mention how objectWillChange is used to grab before-change data to diff the changes. In the below example, we have 2 ObservableObject Store with just count value being used in the View, while flag is not used Store2 with count not being used But since the View observes these 2 objects, whenever any @Publish property changes, SwiftUI thinks that the data changes, then invalidates the body again to see if it needs to redraw....

How to cancel vertical scrolling on paging TabView in SwiftUI

Issue #814 From iOS 14, TabView has the PageTabViewStyle that turns TabView into the equivalent UIPageViewController. We can of course implement our own Pager but the simple DragGesture does not bring the true experience of a paging UIScrollView or paging TabView. We can also use UIPageViewController under the hood but it鈥檚 hard to do lazy. Paging TabView in iOS 14 is built int and optimized for us. We just need to specify PageTabViewStyle, or just ....
