Show half-sheet in SwiftUI

In iOS 16 we can finally present a resizable sheet in SwiftUI. To specify which detents the sheet supports, we can use the new presentationDetents() modifier.

To present a half-sheet that can't be resized by the user, we specify a single medium detent.

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var showSheet = false
    
    var body: some View {
        Button("Show Sheet") {
            showSheet = true
        }
        .sheet(isPresented: $showSheet) {
            Text("Sheet Content")
                .presentationDetents([.medium])
        }
    }
}

To present a sheet that can be resized between a half-sheet and a full sheet, we should add both medium and large detents.

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var showSheet = false
    
    var body: some View {
        Button("Show Sheet") {
            showSheet = true
        }
        .sheet(isPresented: $showSheet) {
            Text("Sheet Content")
                .presentationDetents([.medium, .large])
        }
    }
}

Detents are only supported for sheets presented on iPhone or in compact horizontal size on iPad. In regular size on iPad and on the Mac, detents will be ignored.

SwiftUI also added support for some custom detents, you can find out more in PresentationDetent documentation.
