We can build an android application using Kotlin and Java. In the tutorials, we are using Kotlin language to build the application. In previous tutorial, we learned how to create a project for Kotlin language but here, we will learn how to run an application using the AVD (Android Virtual Device).
We obtain two files when we launch the project, which are:
MainActivity.kt– This is Kotlin file and used to code in Kotlin language.
activity_main.xml– This is xml file and used for the layout of our main activity.
There are enormous number of activities in the Android application. For each of the activity we require a separate Kotlin file to write the code. All the functionalities are added like onclick, onCreate etc.
Kotlin code –
For each activity there is separate xml file to specify the design or layout of our activities. Hence, there are number of functioning like we can adjust button to the top or bottom and make text bold or italic etc.
XML code –
