Kotlin-Create TextView Programatically

Hello Friends,
      In this tutorial I am going create a textview dynamically in kotlin and add it to Linearlayout layout.

1. activity_main.xml: Following is the activity_main.xml containing the TextView with the text .

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
 <android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="https://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
  xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"  
  xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"  
  android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  android:layout_height="match_parent"  
  tools:context=".TextViewSample">  
  <LinearLayout  
   android:id="@+id/ll_main_layout"  
   android:layout_width="match_parent"  
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
   android:orientation="vertical">  
   <TextView  
    android:id="@+id/tv_static"  
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"  
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
    android:textSize="20sp"  
    android:padding="20sp"  
    android:justificationMode="inter_word"  
    android:text="This textview is created from xml"/>  
  </LinearLayout>  
 </android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>

2. Creation of textview dynamically,
val tv_programtically = TextView(this)
tv_programtically.textSize = 20f
tv_programtically.text = "This textview is an dynamic textview in kotlin"

3. Finally the complete code is:

  TextViewSample.kt
package com.android.developer.kotlinsample

import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity
import android.os.Bundle
import android.widget.LinearLayout
import android.widget.TextView
class TextViewSample : AppCompatActivity() {

  override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_text_view_sample)

    /** Dynamic creation of text view */
    val tv_programtically = TextView(this)
    tv_programtically.textSize = 20f
    tv_programtically.text = "This textview is an dynamic textview in kotlin"
    /**------end--------**/

    // add TextView to LinearLayout
    val ll_main_layout = findViewById(R.id.ll_main_layout) as LinearLayout
    ll_main_layout.addView(tv_programtically)
  }
}
Hope this will help some one. Enjoy Coding.... :)
