Otherwise your inflated view might have an incorrect layout display.Also when you pass the parent view you need to specify if you want the inflater to attach it to the parent or not.
Now back to some current one, we can perform any long task in background using service.
Let you are downloading movies in your application and we run one service to start download.
In this post we will start from two real examples (one trivial and another more complex) to see how the Data Binding could be useful for developing Android apps.
EDIT: since Android plugin 2.1 alpha 3 contains official two way data binding support.
I have taken a string inside the service and set to Text View's background .
on calling bindservice() onservice Connected() will call.
It allows to verify that what we are writing in a field is been updated in the other field in real time. Even if the bean would contains getters and setters, it didn’t change the whole example.
In order to write this example let’s start with a simple Java class with a text field: To make this example easy this class doesn’t contain getters and setters (we could even talk for days about the fact that many Android developers don’t use the getters but… The layout is really simple and it is made up of two Edit Text with the same binding in the text attribute: Alright, in an ideal world this example should work by just putting the right listeners on the bean and on the Views and then update everything…
Finally, you should always avoid allocate big objects on the bind/recycling view method.
