What is now the preferred way to do view binding? Kotlin Android Extensions still or?
l
Android View Binding available in AS 3.6 (currently in beta).

Thanks

Just for the info, extensions still work and still more convenient to use (imho).

Data Binding has been there for a while

@ghedeon yea true, but I think view binding via databinding is currently the expected way. and whenandroid 3.6, it will be viewbinding
a
if u just need it for not typing findviewbyid like mine I always prefer kotlinx its great without any errors

Either databinding and just use the references or kotlinx synthetic. I still prefer synthetic.

synthetic just broke on me again in the IDE (red code), I just replaced it altogether.

yeah synthetic has a lot of gotchas. I was happy to see the slimmed down data binding approach in 3.6
