android-logoUsing Android Analog Clock and Digital Clock in any Android Application is very easy. We just need to put the Android clock control in the xml file, Then it will automatically pick the time and show on the Activity screen. Here is the complete code.

Please Note: DigitalClock class is deprecated from ‘API level 17′, So please use TextClock instead of DigitalClock  if you need. Also if you want to change the time using clock, then you have to use TimePicker control instead of AnalogClock and DigitalClock control.
