Inferred type is Int but Float was expected (yet I give it an Int!) - bug in Anko Commons 0.10.1 Dimensions View.sp?

inline fun View.sp(value: Int): Int = context.sp(value)
inline fun View.sp(value: Float): Int = context.sp(value)

Yet I get error Type mismatch: inferred type is Int but Float was expected on the last line:

val p = Paint()
p.textSize = sp(24)

I believe that the compiler complaining about attempting to assign an int to the field textSize of type float


thanks! So it is a bug in the inlined fun? (Anko)

Paint.class has:

public void setTextSize(float textSize) {

Maybe diagnostics could be clearer? …but Float was expected by textSize ?

This funny code works :slight_smile:

p.textSize = sp(24.0f).toFloat()


Both of your functions return Int; shouldn’t the second return Float?


I suspect you are right, yet it might be some Android idiosyncrasy. So I am tagging this Android.

Anko has:

so it’s either bug in Anko or I am doing something wrong?

As per

May be a dimension value, which is a floating point number appended with a
unit such as “14.5sp”.
