Usage

Example

  • Import DynamicForms

  • Declare your dynamic form model

    DynamicForm {
      DynamicStack(.vertical) {
        DynamicText("Title").bold()
        DynamicText("Description")
        DynamicStack(.horizontal) {
          DynamicText("State: ")
          DynamicText("Initial")
        }
        DynamicStack(.horizontal) {
          DynamicButton(
            DynamicText("OK"),
            action: "content.ok"
          )
          DynamicButton(
            DynamicText("Cancel"),
            action: "content.cancel"
          )
        }
      }
    }

    Equivalent for

    VStack {
      Text("Title").bold()
      Text("Description")
      HStack {
        Text("State: ")
        Text("Initial")
      }
      HStack {
        Button { 
          DynamicFormClient.shared.send("content.id")
        } label: {
          Text("OK")
        }
        Button { 
          DynamicFormClient.shared.send("content.cancel")
        } label: {
          Text("Cancel")
        }
      }
    }
  • Specify body for your dynamic-form-based view using DynamicFormView

    DynamicFormView($form)
  • Handle button actions

    // Returns AnyPublisher<Event, Never> where Event is
    // Event {
    //   id: DynamicElementIdentifier
    //   action: DynamicElementActionIdentifier
    // }
    DynamicFormClient.shared.publisher
    
    // Filters events and returns AnyPublisher<Void, Never>
    DynamicFormClient.shared.publisher(
      for: .init(id: "element", action: "tap")
    )
    
    // Filters events by actionID and returns AnyPublisher<Void, Never>
    DynamicFormClient.shared.publisher(
      for: "actionID"
    )
