How do I display the current date and time in an Android application?
Okay, not that hard as there are several methods to do this. I assume you want to put the current date & time into a
String currentDateTimeString = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance().format(new Date()); // textView is the TextView view that should display it textView.setText(currentDateTimeString);
There is more to read in the documentation that can easily be found here . There you'll find more information on how to change the format used for conversion.
