How to get selected time settings from device?

Hi!

 

I'm doing some small project and need to get user's settings, particularly Date/Time (Options - Date/Time). I need to get the information on the selected Time Zone (GMT) and Time Format.

 

How can I do this?

Get an instance of the calendar and call Calendar.getTimeZone(). This is covered in the javadocs.

 

See TimeZone and Calendar.

 

Also see DateFormat.formatLocal()
