Scrollable readonly EditView in Kotlin

 Scrollable readonly EditView in Kotlin


In the view xml file: 
<EditText
        android:id="@+id/etResult"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="343dp"
        android:background="@color/backgroundColor"
        android:backgroundTint="#00000000"
        android:ems="10"
        android:enabled="true"
        android:fontFamily="sans-serif-condensed"
        android:gravity="start|top"
        android:hint="@string/blankfoldermessage"
        android:importantForAutofill="no"
        android:inputType="none"
        android:paddingTop="2dp"
        android:singleLine="false"
        tools:targetApi="o" />

in the kotlin file (init function): 
etResult.keyListener = null


this will allow the edit text to be multiline, not editable but scrollable.

Simple use of Timer in Kotlin


the code below will set the button to clickable after 30 sec:

btnOk.isClickable=false
Timer().schedule(timerTask {

    btnOk.isClickable=true

}, 1000*30)

the above code runs in a separate thread, 
so the UI is responsive while running this code.

Working with UI controls from Non main thread in Kotlin


import org.jetbrains.anko.doAsync
import org.jetbrains.anko.uiThread


fun anyFunction(){
doAsync {
      // Normal code inside Async thread
      I=I+1
     If(I=100){

    uiThread {

        tvResult.setText =”I is now 100!!”
      }
    }
   //More code
   If(x==0){
     uiThread {

        tvResult.setText =”there’s some problem!”
      }
   }


}
}

Note: - you can include multiple uiThread inside same doAsync
          - you can include multiple doAsync inside any function
