Migrate from Builders

Why remove the builders?

  • Builders serves more of a purpose in the original FormMaster repository to quickly build form elements by chaining setters
  • Setters in KFormMaster were kept to provide some compatibility with Java and limit the properties in the Kotlin Form DSL
  • Compatibility with Java was fixed in a recent update by removing the original builder methods in the Form Element classes
  • Now, the only purpose of the builder classes was to build form elements in the Form DSL
  • The builder classes create too much redundancy in the code and cause issues with the Dex file that is created
