Android Data Binding Library suggest change

Custom event using lambda expression

Define Interface

public interface ClickHandler {
    public void onButtonClick(User user);
}

Create Model class

public class User {
    private String name;

    public User(String name) {
        this.name = name;
    }

    public String getName() {
        return name;
    }

    public void setName(String name) {
        this.name = name;
    }
}

Layout XML

<layout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <data>
        <variable
            name="handler"
            type="com.example.ClickHandler"/>

        <variable
            name="user"
            type="com.example.User"/>
    </data>

    <RelativeLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent">

        <Button
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="@{user.name}"
            android:onClick="@{() -> handler.onButtonClick(user)}"/>
    </RelativeLayout>
</layout>

Activity code :

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements ClickHandler {

    private ActivityMainBinding binding;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        binding = DataBindingUtil.setContentView(this,R.layout.activity_main);
        binding.setUser(new User("DataBinding User"));
        binding.setHandler(this);
    }

    @Override
    public void onButtonClick(User user) {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,"Welcome " + user.getName(),Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }
}

For some view listener which is not available in xml code but can be set in java code, it can be bind with custom binding.

Custom class

public class BindingUtil {
    @BindingAdapter({"bind:autoAdapter"})
    public static void setAdapter(AutoCompleteTextView view, ArrayAdapter<String> pArrayAdapter) {
        view.setAdapter(pArrayAdapter);
    }
    @BindingAdapter({"bind:onKeyListener"})
    public static void setOnKeyListener(AutoCompleteTextView view , View.OnKeyListener pOnKeyListener)
    {
        view.setOnKeyListener(pOnKeyListener);
    }
}

Handler class

public class Handler extends BaseObservable {
    private ArrayAdapter<String> roleAdapter;
       
    public ArrayAdapter<String> getRoleAdapter() {
        return roleAdapter;
    }
    public void setRoleAdapter(ArrayAdapter<String> pRoleAdapter) {
        roleAdapter = pRoleAdapter;
    }
}

XML

<layout 
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:bind="http://schemas.android.com/tools" >

    <data>
        <variable
            name="handler"
            type="com.example.Handler" />
    </data>

    <LinearLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:orientation="vertical" >

        <AutoCompleteTextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:singleLine="true"
            bind:autoAdapter="@{handler.roleAdapter}" />

    </LinearLayout>
</layout>
