Chapter 19
Adding a Search Bar Using Searchable

I knew that if I failed I wouldn't regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.

For most list-based apps, it is common to have a search bar at the top of the screen. How can you implement a search bar for data searching? In this chapter, we will add a search bar to the FoodPin app. With the search bar, we will enhance the app to allow users to search through the available restaurants.

Prior to iOS 15, SwiftUI didn't come with a built-in modifier for handling search in List views. Developers had to create their own solution. In our Mastering SwiftUI book, we have written a chapter showing you how to create a custom search bar in SwiftUI using TextField and display the search results.

Starting with iOS 15, the SwiftUI framework introduced a modifier named searchable for List views. You can simply attach the modifier to a list view and create a search field.
