How did you achieve type safety when constructing the view holder from the view type integer?
Zak Taccardi

Zak Taccardi so first please don’t use an enum here but the layout id of the view. This is also what Google recommends here.

For creating the viewholders I would indeed still use a switch as its done in this repo:

As no type casting is here it should be fine, also its hidden in the TypeFactory.

But if you want to make it a bit more fancy you could even there use the visitor pattern and have createHolder interface similar to the type one.

Like what you read? Give Danny Preussler a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
