"Avoid passing null as the view root" warning when inflating view for use by AlertDialog

I get the lint warning,

Avoid passing null as the view root
when inflating views with
null
as
parent
, like:

LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.dialog_edit, null);


However, the view is to be used as the content of an
AlertDialog
, using
setView
on
AlertDialog.Builder
, so I don't know what should be passed as the
parent
.

What do you think the
parent
should be in this case?

Answer

Use this code to inflate the dialog view without a warning:

View.inflate(context, R.layout.dialog_edit, null);
