How to call functions inside AndroidView or AndroidViewBinding composable? In the old view system if I needed to update multiple views in multiple places, I simply created a function for that:
private fun updateViews(value1: Int, value2: Int) = with(binding) {
    timelineTextView.text = "$value1, $value2"
    ... A lot of other stuff

How is that possible when using the AndroidViewBinding Composable?
fun MainScreen(){
    AndroidViewBinding(ActivityPlayBinding::inflate) {
        playButton.setOnClickListener {
            updateViews(value1, value2)

        playButton2.setOnClickListener {
            updateViews(value1, value2)
How can I call that
function in Compose? Simply putting the content of updateViews function where the function gets called feels really bad cause that causes a lot of duplicate code. But I cant seem to find the right way to do it…

You don't update views in compose. Instead you should update your state and compose will recompose the views that use that state.
