Android ButterKnife edit

Configuring ButterKnife in your project

Configure your project-level build.gradle to include the android-apt plugin:

buildscript {
   repositories {
      mavenCentral()
   }

   dependencies {
      classpath 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-gradle-plugin:8.5.1'
   }
}

Then, apply the android-apt plugin in your module-level build.gradle and add the ButterKnife dependencies:

apply plugin: 'android-apt'

android {
    ...
}

dependencies {
      compile 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:8.5.1'
      annotationProcessor 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:8.5.1'
}

Note: If you are using the new Jack compiler with version 2.2.0 or newer you do not need the android-apt plugin and can instead replace apt with annotationProcessor when declaring the compiler dependency.

In order to use ButterKnife annotations you shouldn’t forget about binding them in onCreate() of your Activities or onCreateView() of your Fragments:

class ExampleActivity extends Activity {

@Override 
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    // Binding annotations
    ButterKnife.bind(this);
    // ...
}

}

// Or
class ExampleFragment extends Fragment {

@Override
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreateView(inflater, container, savedInstanceState);
    View view = inflater.inflate(getContentView(), container, false);
    // Binding annotations
    ButterKnife.bind(this, view);
    // ...
    return view;
}

}

Snapshots of the development version are available in Sonatype’s snapshots repository.


Below are the additional steps you’d have to take to use ButterKnife in a library project

To use ButterKnife in a library project, add the plugin to your project-level build.gradle:

buildscript {
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-gradle-plugin:8.5.1'
    }
}

…and then apply to your module by adding these lines on the top of your library-level build.gradle:

apply plugin: 'com.android.library'
// ...
apply plugin: 'com.jakewharton.butterknife'

Now make sure you use R2 instead of R inside all ButterKnife annotations.

class ExampleActivity extends Activity {

    // Bind xml resource to their View 
    @BindView(R2.id.user) EditText username;
    @BindView(R2.id.pass) EditText password;

    // Binding resources from drawable,strings,dimens,colors
    @BindString(R.string.choose) String choose;
    @BindDrawable(R.drawable.send) Drawable send;
    @BindColor(R.color.cyan) int cyan;
    @BindDimen(R.dimen.margin) Float generalMargin;

    // Listeners
    @OnClick(R.id.submit)
    public void submit(View view) {
    // TODO submit data to server...
    }

    // bind with butterknife in onCreate
    @Override 
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        ButterKnife.bind(this);
        // TODO continue
  }

}
