Android Basic Tutorial : Get the Current Date and Time

Here’s a code snipped to get the current date and/or time. This snipped uses the Calendar object (java.util.Calendar) which is a useful class when working with dates.

//Get a calendar object for the current date and time
Calendar CurrentDateTime = Calendar.getInstance();

//Example: Get current day of the month
int CurrentDay = fCalendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

//Example: Get current minutes
int CurrentMinutes = fCalendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
