I want to create a dialog which can select the time and the date at the same time.
I know that there is not a default widget that can do that on Android. I also know that there are open source projects on how do similar staff. The problem in this project is that in the dialog we have two buttons: datePicker and timePicker.
And that's not what I want to do - I want that the date and time picker appear at the same time.
So I think the two main problem will be:
First make the time and date picker appear in the same dialog
Here i can help you some what: you can create a layout consisting of a
DatePicker and a
TimePicker in a
LinearLayout with the orientation set to vertical.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:id="@+id/linearLayout1" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:orientation="vertical" > <DatePicker android:id="@+id/datePicker1" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" > </DatePicker> <TimePicker android:id="@+id/timePicker1" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" > </TimePicker> </LinearLayout>
Then use this layout to create your dialog.
Dialog dialog = new Dialog(mContext); dialog.setContentView(R.layout.custom_dialog); dialog.setTitle("Custom Dialog");
To react to the user interacting with your
TimePicker, do something like this:
TimePicker tp = (TimePicker)dialog.findViewById(R.id.timepicker1); tp.setOnTimeChangedListener(myOnTimechangedListener);
To get the values from the Date- and TimePicker when the user has finished setting them, add an OK button in your dialog, and then read the date and time values from the Date- and TimePicker when the user presses OK.
To make something that looks exactly as in your screen shots I recommend you to make all things custom with your own logic.
