Heads up... You've reached locked video content where the transcript will be shown as obfuscated text.

Before we even touch the code, I’d like to point out a very nice way to debug your view hierarchy. Run your app in the simulator.


So we can fix that in ContentView.

GeometryReader {


So, create a new SwiftUI View file called GridView.swift

func gridImage(size: CGSize) -> UIImage {
  let width = size.width
  let height = size.height
  return UIGraphicsImageRenderer(size: size).image { context in
let path = UIBezierPath()
path.move(to: CGPoint(x: width, y: 0))
path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: width, y: height))
path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: 0, y: height))
let size = CGSize(width: 30, height: 30)
let image = Image(uiImage: gridImage(size: size))
  .fill(ImagePaint(image: image))
ZStack {
  Color(uiColor: .tertiarySystemBackground)
    .fill(ImagePaint(image: image))


Open up BackgroundView.swift, and change the color in the ZStack to be the GridView
