Kotlin Extensions for easier reference View from code


Example

You can use extensions for reference View, no more boilerplate after you created the views.

Original Idea is by Anko Library

Extensions

inline fun <reified T : View> View.find(id: Int): T = findViewById(id) as T
inline fun <reified T : View> Activity.find(id: Int): T = findViewById(id) as T
inline fun <reified T : View> Fragment.find(id: Int): T = view?.findViewById(id) as T
inline fun <reified T : View> RecyclerView.ViewHolder.find(id: Int): T = itemView?.findViewById(id) as T

inline fun <reified T : View> View.findOptional(id: Int): T? = findViewById(id) as? T
inline fun <reified T : View> Activity.findOptional(id: Int): T? = findViewById(id) as? T
inline fun <reified T : View> Fragment.findOptional(id: Int): T? = view?.findViewById(id) as? T
inline fun <reified T : View> RecyclerView.ViewHolder.findOptional(id: Int): T? = itemView?.findViewById(id) as? T

Usage

val yourButton by lazy { find<Button>(R.id.yourButtonId) }
val yourText by lazy { find<TextView>(R.id.yourTextId) }
val yourEdittextOptional by lazy { findOptional<EditText>(R.id.yourOptionEdittextId) }
