Kotlin : Android’s future is here – Part 4


Recycler View

RecyclerView is a boon to Android developers when it comes to handling a huge amount of data in list form.

RecyclerView with Kotlin

We need to add compile com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:+ into our app-level gradle file

Then, we have to add recycler view in our xml file

Now, create a row file with name row.xml

We have to create an adapter which will process the data and will display it in recycler view.

Finally, we have to set adapter to recycler view in main activity and also set the layout manager for recycler view.


Recycler view is a ‘must to know’ concept in recycler view. This solves many problems of list view. Hence, if you are new to android, get used to using it. This will help you in a lot of ways.
