How can I solve androidx.appcompat.widget.SearchView cannot be cast to android.widget.SearchView

  android, android-studio, kotlin, searchview

I know there are a lot of questions about that error. Tried many solutions, I realized something was different in my case. Can anyone please help?
I tried to apply searchview to recyclerview, and inserted filter() in reyclerview adapter and setOnQueryTextListener in mainactivity.

But I got the following error:
androidx.appcompat.widget.SearchView cannot be cast to android.widget.SearchView

        searchview.setOnQueryTextListener(object:SearchView.OnQueryTextListener{
            override fun onQueryTextSubmit(query: String?): Boolean {
                return false
            }

            override fun onQueryTextChange(newText: String?): Boolean {
                adapter.filter.filter(newText)
                return false
            }
        })

getFilter()

override fun getFilter(): Filter {
            return object : Filter() {
                override fun performFiltering(charSequence: CharSequence): FilterResults {
                    val charString = charSequence.toString()
                    if (charString.isEmpty()) {
                        searchList = itemList
                    } else {
                        val filteredList = ArrayList<CoinList>()

                        for (coin in itemList) {
                            if (coin.name.contains(charString)) {
                                filteredList.add(coin)
                            }
                        }
                        searchList = filteredList
                    }
                    val filterResults = FilterResults()
                    filterResults.values = searchList
                    return filterResults
                }

                override fun publishResults(
                    charSequence: CharSequence,
                    filterResults: FilterResults
                ) {
                    searchList = filterResults.values as ArrayList<CoinList>
                    notifyDataSetChanged()
                }
            }
        }

I don’t know what is my fault. How can I solve this?
