LiveDataKt.observe

@MainThread
public static final @NonNull Observer<@NonNull T> <T extends Object> LiveDataKt.observe(
    LiveData<T> receiver,
    LifecycleOwner owner,
    Function1<T, Unit> onChanged
)

Adds the given onChanged lambda as an observer within the lifespan of the given owner and returns a reference to observer. The events are dispatched on the main thread. If LiveData already has data set, it will be delivered to the onChanged.

The observer will only receive events if the owner is in Lifecycle.State.STARTED or Lifecycle.State.RESUMED state (active).

If the owner moves to the Lifecycle.State.DESTROYED state, the observer will automatically be removed.

When data changes while the owner is not active, it will not receive any updates. If it becomes active again, it will receive the last available data automatically.

LiveData keeps a strong reference to the observer and the owner as long as the given LifecycleOwner is not destroyed. When it is destroyed, LiveData removes references to the observer and the owner.

If the given owner is already in Lifecycle.State.DESTROYED state, LiveData ignores the call.
