Hello guys, I hope you are doing well. And I think you were looking about the trick for integrating the RecyclerView in android with Kotlin. Android RecyclerView is an important component widely used in Android apps. It is important to know how to use it and how to customize its behavior. And for your kind information, I would like to tell you that, ListView is going to Replaced By Recycler View. Because if you see into your Design Window then you can find the Legacy Tab, After clicking on Legacy Tab you can find Listview is in Legacy. This means reducing the use of Listview and replacing it via Recycler View. And this officially announced in Android Summit December 2018. So without wasting more time let’s directly comes to the topic.


If your app needs to display a scrolling list of elements based on large data sets (or data that frequently changes), you should use RecyclerView as described on this page. Basically, The Recycler View widget is a more advanced and flexible version of ListView.
