Chapter 50
Animating Scroll View Using SwiftUI

In the earlier chapter, we introduced a new feature of ScrollView in iOS 17, which enables developers to easily detect the scroll position and implement the scroll-up (or scroll-down) feature. In addition to this functionality, the latest version of SwiftUI also introduces a new modifier called scrollTransition that allows us to observe the transition of views and apply various animated effects.

Previously, we built a basic scroll view. Let's continue using it as an example. For reference, here is the code for creating a scroll view:

ScrollView {
    LazyVStack(spacing: 10) {
        ForEach(0...50, id: \.self) { index in

            bgColors[index % 5]
                .frame(height: 100)
                .overlay {
                        .font(.system(.title, weight: .bold))
                .onTapGesture {
                    withAnimation {
                        scrollID = 0
.contentMargins(10.0, for: .scrollContent)
.scrollPosition(id: $scrollID)

Using ScrollTransition Modifier

A transition in scroll views describes the changes a child view should undergo when its appearing or disappearing. The new scrollTransition modifier enables us to monitor these transitions and apply different visual and animated effects accordingly.

To demonstrate how it works, let's modify the code from the previous section by adding the scrollTransition modifier to the color view. Here is the updated code:
