Kotlin collection interfaces include a lot of tools to let you easily sort, filter, and otherwise calculate and manipulate their contents. Learn about a few different ways to sort data using both simple function calls and more complex lambda expressions.
- [Instructor] In last week's tip,…I described how to get started with Kotlin data collections.…This week, I'll show you how to use some tools…that let you easily sort, filter,…and otherwise calculate and manipulate…the contents of the data collection.…To demonstrate some of the simplest functionality,…I've created a list of strings.…And I've packaged it in a class named DataProvider.…It has a single function inside the companion object.…That makes the function behave like a static method in Java,…and it returns a simple list of strings,…the names of the U.S. states in a randomized order.…
I'll come back to the main activity class…and I'll come back to the shopping cart later.…For the moment, I just want to work with…that simple list of strings.…I'm going to create a variable that I'll call stateList…and I'll get its value from DataProvider.getStateList.…Now I want to sort that data in alphabetical order.…The list interface has a function called sorted.…Now it doesn't actually sort that list,…instead, it returns a copy of the list.…
