Button styles

Posted on February 21, 2021



Several built-in button styles are available for macOS such as the PlainButtonStyle, LinkButtonStyle, and BorderlessButtonStyle. The BorderedButtonStyle is also the default button style. To create a custom appearance for a button, use the ButtonStyle protocol. To fully customize the button’s appearance and behavior, use the PrimitiveButtonStyle protocol.
