In Activity you can use like:

    TagView tagView = findViewById(R.id.tag_view_test);

User can set Tag in two way

2.Select item from provided list

So if you want to provide String list you can predefine Tag list by using:

    tagView.addTagSeparator(TagSeparator.AT_SEPARATOR); // @ seprator

or in XML you can set

    app:tag_separator="HASH_SEPARATOR" // Hash seperator

To get Tag add or Remove listener

    tagView.initTagListener(TagItemListener listener); // You can implement it

To get selected tag

    tagView.getSelectedTags();// that will return TagModel List
