Android Build a Simple Android App with Kotlin Basic Android Programming Accessing Views in Code: Assigning Variables

Anyone with the latest Android studio as of July 2019

// Assign views to their corresponding variables factTextView = findViewById(R.id.textView2) showFactButton = findViewById(R.id.button) showFactButton!!.setOnClickListener { val fact = "Ostriches can run faster than horses" factTextView!!.text =fact

Anything that follows (R.id.....), what comes after id should be the id of your text view or your button which you will get from the layout information provided in the right panel when you either click on the text view or button
