public abstract @interface InverseBindingMethod
implements Annotation


InverseBindingMethod is used to identify how to listen for changes to a View property and which getter method to call. InverseBindingMethod should be associated with any class as part of InverseBindingMethods.

     type = android.widget.TextView.class,
     attribute = "android:text",
     event = "android:textAttrChanged",
     method = "getText")})
 public class MyTextViewBindingAdapters { ... }

method is optional. If it isn't provided, the attribute name is used to find the method name, either prefixing with "is" or "get". For the attribute android:text, data binding will search for a public CharSequence getText() method on TextView.

event is optional. If it isn't provided, the event name is assigned the attribute name suffixed with AttrChanged. For the android:text attribute, the default event name would be android:textAttrChanged. The event should be set using a BindingAdapter. For example:

 @BindingAdapter(value = {"android:beforeTextChanged", "android:onTextChanged",
                          "android:afterTextChanged", "android:textAttrChanged"},
                          requireAll = false)
 public static void setTextWatcher(TextView view, final BeforeTextChanged before,
                                   final OnTextChanged on, final AfterTextChanged after,
                                   final InverseBindingListener textAttrChanged) {
     TextWatcher newValue = new TextWatcher() {
         public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count) {
             if (on != null) {
                 on.onTextChanged(s, start, before, count);
             if (textAttrChanged != null) {
     TextWatcher oldValue = ListenerUtil.trackListener(view, newValue,;
     if (oldValue != null) {
