Kotlin and Android Development featuring Jetpack:Page 37


Enable Data Binding paragraph. I’m not sure I got this right, the book is a bit vague on this in my opinion. But, I placed the required items in the “build.gradle(:app)” file. And here is how I made my entries. Can you tell me is the correct way to do it, see my code snipping below;

plugins {
    id 'com.android.application'
    id 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.android'
    id 'kotlin-kapt'

android {
    compileSdk 32

        dataBinding = true

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.example.pennydrop"
        minSdk 26
        targetSdk 32
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"

        testInstrumentationRunner "androidx.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"

    buildTypes {```

This looks right to me! Keep in mind you can always grab the source code from the book’s homepage and compare against what’s there.
