Implementation

calculateDiff method from DiffUtill class requires DiffUtil.Callback object as parameter.

DiffUtil callback - ActorDiffCallback.kt

Implements 4 methods:

  • getOldListSize - returns size of the old list
  • getNewListSize - returns size of the new list
  • areItemsTheSame - returns true if two items are the same, e.g. have the same ids
  • areContentsTheSame - returns true if displayed content was not changed. In our case we only display actor's name so we're detecing name's change.

Applying diff result - ActorAdapter.swap()

DiffResult can be applied to adapter by calling diffResult.dispatchUpdatesTo(adapter).

    fun swap(actors: List<Actor>) {
            val diffCallback = ActorDiffCallback(this.actors, actors)
            val diffResult = DiffUtil.calculateDiff(diffCallback)

            this.actors.clear()
            this.actors.addAll(actors)
            diffResult.dispatchUpdatesTo(this)
    }
