You can add this View via XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android=""    xmlns:app=""    android:layout_width="match_parent"    android:layout_height="match_parent"    >
    <        android:id="@+id/mentionsListView"        android:layout_width="0dp"        android:layout_height="0dp"        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"        app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf="parent"        app:layout_constraintRight_toRightOf="parent"        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent"        />

We recommend using this view with its ViewModel, which supplies it with data from the Stream API.

The basic setup of the ViewModel and connecting it to the View is done the following way:

val viewModel: MentionListViewModel by viewModels()viewModel.bindView(binding.mentionsListView, viewLifecycleOwner)

From that point, you should be able to see messages which contain mentions of the current user.


bindView sets listeners on the View and the ViewModel. Any additional listeners should be set after calling bindView.

Handling Actions#

MentionListView allows you to configure certain actions on it:

mentionListView.setMentionSelectedListener { message ->    // Handle a mention item being clicked}

The full list of available listeners is available here.
