When building forms in your app, it will make the user experience even better when a user can just dismiss the keyboard by tapping anywhere outside a TextField. So how can you achieve this behaviour in SwiftUI?

To make this behaviour accessible to any view, we will extend the View class and add this capability to all the views.

Once we have this extension created, now every class extending the View class will have this function available to it by calling self.hideKeyboard().

Additionally, development becomes more efficient as tasks can easily be distributed among different developers.
