How to Set Background Image for VStack in iOS SwiftUI

SwiftUI has made creating stunning interfaces simpler. A fundamental part of this toolkit is the VStack, which arranges views vertically. In this blog post, we’ll learn how to add a background image to a VStack.

Understanding VStack and .background Modifier

VStack is a vertical stack where we can align children views vertically. A common use case involves placing an image behind VStack contents. That’s where the .background modifier comes into play. This powerful tool allows you to add a background to any SwiftUI view.

Add a Background Image to VStack

To add a background image to your VStack, you need to use the .background modifier. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Prepare your VStack

Create your VStack with your desired elements. For example, it could look like this:

VStack {
  Text("This is a VStack with a background image")

Step 2: Use the .background Modifier

To add an image as the background, use the .background modifier. You need to make sure the image is already in your asset catalog.

VStack {
  Text("This is a VStack with a background image")

By using .resizable() and .scaledToFill(), you’re ensuring that your image resizes and fills up the entire VStack, regardless of its size.
