View binding(View binding)

When referencing views in code, View binding makes it easier for developers to write code that interacts with views by providing compile-time security. When this function is enabled, View binding generates a binding class for each XML layout file included in that module. In most cases, viewbinding replaces findViewById. Developers can refer to all views with IDs without worrying about the risk of an empty pointer or class forced conversion exception. To enable viewbinding in a project, add the following to each module's build.gradle file:

android {
    viewBinding.enabled = true
