In SwiftUI, you can declare an array of View using the standard Swift array syntax. Here’s how you can do it:

import SwiftUI

struct ContentView: View {
    // Declare an array of View
    var views: [AnyView] = [
        AnyView(Text("View 1")),
        AnyView(Text("View 2")),
        AnyView(Text("View 3"))
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            // Use ForEach to iterate over the array of views
            ForEach(views, id: \.self) { view in

struct ContentView_Previews: PreviewProvider {
    static var previews: some View {

In this example:

  • We’ve declared an array views of type [AnyView].
  • Each element of the array is of type AnyView, allowing us to store any type of View.
  • We’ve initialized the array with three Text views wrapped in AnyView.
  • Inside the body of the ContentView, we use a VStack to arrange the views vertically.
  • We use ForEach to iterate over the array of views and display each one.

You can replace the Text views with any other type of view you want to include in the array. This approach allows you to dynamically create and display views based on the contents of the array.
