postValue

void postValue (T value)

Posts a task to a main thread to set the given value. So if you have a following code executed in the main thread:

 liveData.postValue("a");
 liveData.setValue("b");
 
The value "b" would be set at first and later the main thread would override it with the value "a".

If you called this method multiple times before a main thread executed a posted task, only the last value would be dispatched.

Parameters
value T: The new value

void setValue (T value)

Sets the value. If there are active observers, the value will be dispatched to them.

This method must be called from the main thread. If you need set a value from a background thread, you can use postValue(Object)
