Android, SeekBar in dialog

I would like to use a dialog with a seekbar in my application.
But I don't really know how to do it because I lack experience with android.

So, when you press a button: a dialog should come up, with a seekbar and the user is able to enter a value and then press OK-button.

The code I have at the moment is the default code by developer.android:

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
builder.setMessage("Are you sure you want to exit?")
.setCancelable(false)
.setPositiveButton("Yes", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
MyActivity.this.finish();
}
})
.setNegativeButton("No", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
dialog.cancel();
}
});
AlertDialog alert = builder.create();


How should I do to add a
SeekBar
?

Thanks!

Maybe you could think of create a custom dialog; it requires more work but it usually works for me ;) Create a new layout file for your dialog (say, your_dialog.xml):

<RelativeLayout
android:id="@+id/your_dialog_root_element"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
>

<SeekBar
    android:id="@+id/your_dialog_seekbar"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    >
</SeekBar>

<Button
    android:id="@+id/your_dialog_button"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    >
</Button>

Then, in your activity:

Dialog yourDialog = new Dialog(this);
LayoutInflater inflater = (LayoutInflater)this.getSystemService(LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
View layout = inflater.inflate(R.layout.your_dialog, (ViewGroup)findViewById(R.id.your_dialog_root_element));
yourDialog.setContentView(layout);

Thus, you can operate on your element as follows:

Button yourDialogButton = (Button)layout.findViewById(R.id.your_dialog_button);
SeekBar yourDialogSeekBar = (SeekBar)layout.findViewById(R.id.your_dialog_seekbar);
// ...

and so on, to set listeners for button and seekbar.

EDIT: The seekbar onchangelistener should be as follows:

OnSeekBarChangeListener yourSeekBarListener = new OnSeekBarChangeListener() {
    @Override
    public void onStopTrackingTouch(SeekBar seekBar) {
            //add code here
    }

    @Override
    public void onStartTrackingTouch(SeekBar seekBar) {
            //add code here
    }

    @Override
    public void onProgressChanged(SeekBar seekBark, int progress, boolean fromUser) {
            //add code here
    }
 };
 yourDialogSeekBar.setOnSeekBarChangeListener(yourSeekBarListener);
