Cannot change item data inside currentList of ListAdapter

I’m trying to create a RecyclerView that having checkbox in each of its item. I followed this link to save states of checkbox, that is to add a boolean variable to my object. However, I encountered a problem that the value of isChecked from my object cannot be changed. Is the content of currentList immutable? Is there any way for me to implement this feature with ListAdapter?

Here is the snippet of my code. Thank you very much.

class DocumentAdapter() : ListAdapter<Document, DocumentAdapter.DocumentViewHolder>() {

    override fun onCreateViewHolder(parent: ViewGroup, viewType: Int): DocumentViewHolder {
        return LayoutInflater.from(parent.context)
            .inflate(R.layout.item_document, parent, false)
            .let {
                DocumentViewHolder(it)
            }
    }

    override fun onBindViewHolder(holder: VH, position: Int) {
        holder.bind(getItem(position))
    }

    class DocumentViewHolder(
        override val view: View
    ) : RecyclerView.ViewHolder<DocumentDTO>(view) {

        fun bind(item: Document) {
            cbItem.isChecked = item.isChecked
            cbItem.setOnCheckedChangeListener { _, isChecked ->
                item.isChecked = isChecked // Not working
            }
        }
    }
}

When debugging, after running through the line item.isChecked = isChecked, I can see value isChecked inside currentList is not updated, even though that value of the local Document item has been updated.

Answer

Since mutation to content of ListAdapter must be submitted through submitList(), I have to create a callback and send the updated item out to update the data.

    fun bind(item: Document) {
        cbItem.isChecked = item.isChecked
        cbItem.setOnCheckedChangeListener { _, isChecked ->
            item.isChecked = isChecked
            onCheckBoxClicked(item, isChecked)
        }
    }
