Java – The view binder java.util.NoSuchElementException cannot be generated using Android Gradle Plugin 2.1

The view binder java.util.NoSuchElementException cannot be generated using Android Gradle Plugin 2.1… here is a solution to the problem.

The view binder java.util.NoSuchElementException cannot be generated using Android Gradle Plugin 2.1

I use the bind mechanism in my Android project. Everything worked fine when using the Android Gradle plugin prior to version 2.0.

After a few days, I can upgrade to version 2.1 of the Android Gradle plugin. The following exception occurred while upgrading:

java.lang.RuntimeException: failure, see logs for details.

There’s a reference to a log file at the top, but I don’t know which one. And there are no incorrect files referenced in my project.

Does anyone know what went wrong or how I can fix this error?

Solution

With the release of Android Studio 2.1 Preview 3, Android Data Binding now features two-way data binding (bind).

To implement two-way binding (bind), you only need to add a character:

=

Edit text:

One-way binding (bind).

<TextView android:text="@{user.firstName}" .../>

Two-way binding (bind).

<EditText android:text="@={user.firstName}" .../>

Search bar

One-way binding (bind).

<SeekBar android:progress="@{viewModel.angle}" .../>

Two-way binding (bind).

<SeekBar android:progress="@={viewModel.angle}" .../>

No need to set up listeners, etc. It works fine.

The only place I’ve found documentation is on this is at George Mount’s (Android Engineer) blog.
