Usage

Binding views

// instead of findViewById(R.id.textView) as TextView
val textView = find<TextView>(R.id.textView)

Accessing ViewGroup children

/* instead of:
for (i in 0..layout - 1) {
    layout.getChildAt(i).visibility = View.GONE
}
*/
layout.views.forEach { it.visibility = View.GONE }

TextWatcher

/* instead of:
editText.addTextChangedListener(object : TextWatcher {
    override fun beforeTextChanged(s: CharSequence?, start: Int, count: Int, after: Int) {
        before()
    }
    override fun onTextChanged(s: CharSequence?, start: Int, before: Int, count: Int) {
        onChange()
    }
    override fun afterTextChanged(s: Editable?) {
        after()
    }
}) */
editText.textWatcher {
    beforeTextChanged { text, start, count, after -> before() }
    onTextChanged { text, start, before, count -> onChange() }
    afterTextChanged { text -> after() }
}

SearchView extensions

/* instead of:
searchView.setOnQueryTextListener(object : SearchView.OnQueryTextListener {
    override fun onQueryTextChange(q: String): Boolean {
        update(q)
        return false
    }

    override fun onQueryTextSubmit(q: String): Boolean {
        return false
    }
}) */
searchView.onQueryChange { query -> update(query) }

/* instead of:
searchView.setOnQueryTextListener(object : SearchView.OnQueryTextListener {
    override fun onQueryTextChange(q: String): Boolean {
        return false
    }

    override fun onQueryTextSubmit(q: String): Boolean {
        update(q)
        return false
    }
}) */
searchView.onQuerySubmit { query -> update(query) }

SeekBar extension

/* instead of:
seekBar.setOnSeekBarChangeListener(object : SeekBar.OnSeekBarChangeListener {
    override fun onStopTrackingTouch(seekBar: SeekBar) {

    }

    override fun onStartTrackingTouch(seekBar: SeekBar?) {

    }

    override fun onProgressChanged(seekBar: SeekBar, progress: Int, fromUser: Boolean) {
        mediaPlayer.seekTo(progress)
    }

}) */
seekBar.onProgressChanged { progress, fromUser -> 
    if (fromUser) mediaPlayer.seekTo(progress) 
}

Using system services

// instead of getSystemService(Context.WINDOW_SERVICE) as WindowManager?
windowManager
// instead of getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE) as PowerManager?
powerManager
// instead of getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE) as NotificationManager?
notificationManager
// instead of getSystemService(Context.USER_SERVICE) as UserManager?
userManager
// etc.

Toast messages

longToast("I'm long toast message!")
toast("Hi, I'm short one!")

Layout inflater

// instead of LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.some_layout, null, false)
context.inflateLayout(R.layout.some_layout)
// or
context.inflateLayout(R.layout.some_layout, attachToRoot = true)

Using Intents

// instead of Intent(this, javaClass<SampleActivity>())
val intent = IntentFor<SampleActivity>(this)
// instead of startActivity(Intent(this, javaClass<SampleActivity>()))
startActivity<SampleActivity>()
// instead of startActivityForResult(Intent(this, javaClass<SampleActivity>()), REQUEST_CODE)
startActivityForResult<SampleActivity>(REQUEST_CODE)

Logging

// using javaClass.simpleName as a TAG
w("Warn log message")
e("Error log message")
wtf("WTF log message")
// using lambda log method
v { "Verbose log message" }
d { "Debug log message" }
i { "Info log message" }
// or with custom TAG
v("CustomTag", "Verbose log message with custom tag") 

Threading

// instead of Thread(Runnable { /* long execution */ }).start()
runAsync {
    // long execution
}

// delayed run (e.g. after 1000 millis)
// equals Handler().postDelayed(Runnable { /* delayed execution */ }, delayMillis)
runDelayed(1000) {
    // delayed execution
}

// run on Main Thread outside Activity
// equals Handler(Looper.getMainLooper()).post(Runnable { /* UI update */ })
runOnUiThread {
    // UI update
}

// delayed run on Main Thread
// equals Handler(Looper.getMainLooper()).postDelayed(Runnable { /* delayed UI update */ }, delayMillis)
runDelayedOnUiThread(5000) {
    // delayed UI update
}

From/To API SDK

// instead of if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 21) { /* run methods available since API 21 */ }
fromApi(21) {
    // run methods available since API 21
}

// instead of if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT < 16) { /* handle devices using older APIs */ }
toApi(16) {
    // handle devices running older APIs
}
// or
// instead of if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT <= 16) { /* handle devices using older APIs */ }
toApi(16, inclusive = true) {
    // handle devices running older APIs
}

Loading animation from xml

// instead of AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(applicationContext, R.anim.slide_in_left)
loadAnimation(R.anim.slide_in_left)
