Kotlin Android ListView Example

Creating list items in a separate strings.xml file and added it on ArrayAdapter class:


Add a ListView component to display the list of items in the activity_main.xml file.


In the strings.xml file, create a string-array and add the list items in the item tag.


Add the following code in the MainActivity.kt class file. In this class, we are getting the list of items from the strings.xml file using resource.getStringArray() method. The ArrayAdapter class initialized with the application context, sets the resource type of list and array items as an argument. The listView.adapter = arrayAdapter sets the adapter to the ListView. To perform the click action on items of the list, call the OnItemClickListener{}.
