android kotlin - How to compare two strings

MainActivity.kt

package com.example.jetpack

import android.os.Bundle
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity
import kotlinx.android.synthetic.main.activity_main.*


class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)

        val string1 = "This is a sample string."
        val string2 = "This is a SAMPLE string."

        textView.text = "String 1 : \n$string1"
        textView.append("\n\nString 2 : \n$string2")

        // Compares two strings lexicographically,
        // optionally ignoring case differences.
        if (string1.compareTo(string2,ignoreCase = true) == 0){
            textView.append("\n\nBoth strings are equal, ignoring case.")
        }else{
            textView.append("\n\nBoth strings are not equal, ignoring case.")
        }

        // return zero for equal string
        // return positive integer when argument's ASCII value is smaller
        // return negative integer when argument's ASCII value is greater
        if (string1.compareTo(string2) == 0){
            textView.append("\n\nBoth strings are equal, Case sensitive.")
        }else{
            textView.append("\n\nBoth strings are not equal, Case sensitive.")
        }
    }
}
