I'm coding an app and I'm trying to have a side menu with buttons that you can press which will show a list of other buttons. This has been done before in an app for a French-English dual language bible. Here is a screenshot. Can someone tell me how they might be doing this?

Thank you!

I'm thinking that this might solve my problem. I created a test project and so far it seems to work.

Are you using swiftUI? I would probably use a LazyVGrid.
Isn't swiftUI all done programatically? I wish to use the storyboard. Can swiftUI and the storyboard be used together? Remember all these items I plan to display will used as buttons!

Yes - it requires programming - I had assumed when you said you were coding an app that you expected to program. You can certainly have a grid of buttons in SwiftUI - buttons are just views.

Of course I will program, I'm simply more familiar with placing the graphical elements of the app on storyboard.

Would another way to do this be with a tableview controller with several different table cells? Is it possible to use more than one table cell on the same tableview controller?
