import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.app.TimePickerDialog;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.app.DialogFragment;
import android.app.Dialog;
import java.util.Calendar;
import android.widget.TimePicker;

public class TimePickerFragment extends DialogFragment implements TimePickerDialog.OnTimeSetListener{

public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState){
// Get a Calendar instance
final Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
// Get the current hour and minute
int hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR);
int minute = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);

Creates a new time picker dialog with the specified theme.

TimePickerDialog(Context context, int themeResId,
TimePickerDialog.OnTimeSetListener listener,
int hourOfDay, int minute, boolean is24HourView)

// TimePickerDialog Theme : THEME_DEVICE_DEFAULT_LIGHT
TimePickerDialog tpd = new TimePickerDialog(getActivity(),

// TimePickerDialog Theme : THEME_DEVICE_DEFAULT_DARK
TimePickerDialog tpd2 = new TimePickerDialog(getActivity(),

// TimePickerDialog Theme : THEME_HOLO_DARK
TimePickerDialog tpd3 = new TimePickerDialog(getActivity(),

// TimePickerDialog Theme : THEME_HOLO_LIGHT
TimePickerDialog tpd4 = new TimePickerDialog(getActivity(),

// TimePickerDialog Theme : THEME_TRADITIONAL
TimePickerDialog tpd5 = new TimePickerDialog(getActivity(),

// Return the TimePickerDialog
return tpd;

public void onTimeSet(TimePicker view, int hourOfDay, int minute){
// Do something with the returned time
TextView tv = (TextView) getActivity().findViewById(R.id.start_time);
tv.setText( hourOfDay + ":" + minute );

use this logic to find am pm

public void onTimeSet(TimePicker view, int hourOfDay, int minute) {
    String AM_PM ;
    if(hourOfDay < 12) {
        AM_PM = "AM";
    } else {
        AM_PM = "PM";
