SwiftUI State

This is the iOS-15-only version of the alert code representing the state of the project at the end of this episode:

.alert("Hello there!", isPresented: $alertIsVisible) {
  Button("Awesome!") { }
} message: {
  Text("This is my first pop-up")

If you continue building up the message view until the end of the course, the result will look like this:

.alert("Hello there!", isPresented: $alertIsVisible) {
  Button("Awesome!") { }
} message: {
  let roundedValue = Int(sliderValue.rounded())
  Text("The slider's value is \(roundedValue).\n" + "You scored \(game.points(sliderValue: roundedValue)) points this round.")

And finally, if you continue into the next course, Your First iOS and SwiftUI App: Polishing the App, this is what the final version of the code would look like, in Episode 27—right before you learn to create a custom view instead of relying on the alert modifier.

  "Hello there!",
  isPresented: $alertIsVisible,
  presenting: {
    let roundedValue = Int(sliderValue.rounded())
    return (
      game.points(sliderValue: roundedValue)
  } () as (roundedValue: Int, points: Int)
) { data in
  Button("Awesome!") {
    game.startNewRound(points: data.points)
} message: { data in
  Text("The slider's value is \(data.roundedValue).\n" + "You scored \(data.points) points this round.")

Learn about an important concept called SwiftUI state, which helps you keep your user interface and app state always consistent.
