Chapter 40 - A Compose ViewModel Tutorial

If you are using the latest version of Jetpack Compose (either 1.1.x or 1.2.x), you will need to make the following changes before running the ViewModelDemo app:

1. Change the DemoViewModel declaration so that it subclasses from ViewModel() as follows:

.
.
import androidx.lifecycle.ViewModel
.
.
class DemoViewModel : ViewModel() {

    var isFahrenheit by mutableStateOf(true)
    var result by mutableStateOf("")

    fun convertTemp(temp: String) {
.
.
2. Add the following library dependency to the module level build.gradle file:

dependencies {
.
.
    implementation 'androidx.lifecycle:lifecycle-viewmodel-compose:2.4.1'
.
.
3. Obtain a ViewModel instance in the MainActivity.kt file via a call to the viewModel() lifecycle function. This will return either an existing view model instance, or create a new one if no previous instance exists. This function also ensures that the view model is retained until the activity is destroyed or the app exits:

.
.
import androidx.lifecycle.viewmodel.compose.viewModel
.
.
@Composable
fun ScreenSetup(viewModel: DemoViewModel = viewModel()) {

    MainScreen(
.
.
