Android Datetime picker example

Android Datetime picker example

In this post I’ll will be showing how to use android picker to pick date and time for android application. You can use this code to pick date and time and use the selected time to store in a database or set it to Android textview to show selected values.

Make a new android application or you can use your existing application as their’s only one activity and one layout file to make this picker work.

Make a new Layout file in your application with name datepicker.xml and edit it as below. This file is the design file and it contains two textview to show the date and time and two buttons to display the respective pickers.

datepicker.xml : 


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:padding="10dp">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/txttime"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginTop="52dp"
        android:textColor="#1c1c1c"
        android:textSize="25sp"
        android:textStyle="bold" />

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/btntimepicker"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="#ffc107"
        android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
        android:text="Pick Time"
        android:textColor="#fff"
        android:textStyle="bold" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/txtdate"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginTop="15dp"
        android:textColor="#1c1c1c"
        android:textSize="25sp"
        android:textStyle="bold" />

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/btndatepicker"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="#ffc107"
        android:text="Pick Date"
        android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
        android:textColor="#fff"
        android:textStyle="bold" />
</LinearLayout>

Make a new java class in your project with name DateTimePicker.java and edit it as following. I’m converting selected date and time in different formats and show it on textviews respectively. If you only need the code to display the Date and time picker for your project, write this :

Code to show only Datepicker :


DatePickerDialog dd = new DatePickerDialog(DateTimePicker.this,
                        new DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener() {

                            @Override
                            public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year,
                                                  int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
                            }
                        }, year, month, day);
                dd.show();

Code to show only Timepicker :


    TimePickerDialog td = new TimePickerDialog(DateTimePicker.this,
                        new TimePickerDialog.OnTimeSetListener() {
                            @Override
                            public void onTimeSet(TimePicker view, int hourOfDay, int minute) {
                                
                            }
                        },
                        hour, min,
                        DateFormat.is24HourFormat(DateTimePicker.this)
                );
                td.show();

DateTimePicker.java :

Here ‘s the full code of my activity which will set picked date and time on textviews.

package h.datetimepicker;

        c = Calendar.getInstance();
        hour = c.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
        min = c.get(Calendar.MINUTE);

        year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
        month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);

        txtdate = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtdate);
