DatePickerDialog in Sketchware

To create a DatePickerDialog in Sketchware android project follow the steps given below.

1. In VIEW area of your sketchware android project, insert a LinearH and inside it insert a TextView textview1, an EditText edittext1 and an ImageView imageview1.

For textview1 write text as 'Date:'. For edittext1 write hint as dd/mm/yyyy and deselect 'enabled' in it's properties.

2. Choose image of a Calendar using image manager and set it as image of imageview1.

3. In LOGIC area add a new String variable date.

4. In onCreate event, insert an add source directly block and put following code in it:
public void showDatePickerDialog(View v) {
DialogFragment newFragment = new DatePickerFragment();, "datePicker");
public class DatePickerFragment extends DialogFragment implements DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener {
public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
int year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
int month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
int day = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
return new DatePickerDialog(getActivity(), this, year, month, day);
public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int day) {
int mon = month +1;
date = day + "/" + mon + "/" + year;

5. Add a new event imageview1 onClick. In the event insert an add source directly block and put following code:
6. Save and run the project. Now on clicking the ImageView DatePickerDialog will appear.

  7. You have given in above video,which demostrates pick an date and put in a edittext ,that can be stored,but how i can generate a calender with picked data(dd,MM,yyyy) .that can compared by other calender and find due dates.
    Like :-a survey scheduler has to acheive a survey has done on 21.03.18 and due date is after 6 first create a canlender with picker and then add 6 months.

  8. Sir,i m novice,sorry for inconvience.Help me

  9. Sorry i still cannot accomplished..

    I want as given..

    Scheduled Survey

    Sno- Loc- Done on- picker -due on
    Enter the date by picking date(done on)

    And then add 6 months to get (due on) date automatically.

  10. How to get only year and not any other type of text

    1. Change this line
      date = day + "/" + mon + "/" + year;

      date = ""+year;

      But it will not look good. Better option is you use a spinner for selecting year. Check this :

  11. Ok sir,spinner is other option ,its too not so cool.i m having the app in which i have 3 no edit text for dd/MM/yyyy and then creates a calender by this.

    it is only possible when i m able to save ms(milliseconds) in shared file prefrences by only clicking same imageview1

    Is there any feasiblity?

    I have seen ur video,getting input text through dialog ,where u have taken variable string to this is diferrent case.

  12. Hi helper, I downloaded your video on simple database. That was great. I request you to make a tut on how can specific user can see specific data. Suppose, admin created a new data for student A. When student A logs in , he will see data , not all student.

  13. Hi how is possible to do this without "add source direct"?

  14. My mobile updated nougat to Oreo. After updatung datepicker is not working . it showing errors. What is the problem?

  15. I got an error,it said

    java.lang.IllegalStateException... DatePickerFragment must be a public static class to be properly recreated from instance state

    But if I make it static, it still error and said

    cannot make static reference to the non static field

    How to solve this?

  16. How to get only Day
    EEEE / DD/mm/yyyy

  17. Please sir, how to make date save to format (10102019)?

    Also how to save to shared preferences file?

    1. Use format ddMMyyyy in Calendar format.

      If you are using the code above, in the end,
      date = day+mon+year;

  18. Nice work as always, but i have a small question.
    Is it possible to pick a date "from - to"? I mean i would like to be able to pick the date for an event of several days. I've tried my self to figure it out but with no luck. I thank you in advance.

  19. DatePickerFragment must be a public static class to be properly recreated from instance state.
