Exploring the Different Types of Dialog Windows

There are a number of different Dialog window types available in the Android SDK, including the following:

► Dialog—The basic class for all Dialog types (see Figure 11.1a).

► AlertDialog—A dialog with one, two, or three Button controls (see Figure 11.1b).

► CharacterPickerDialog—A dialog for choosing an accented character associated with a base character (see Figure 11.1c).

► DatePickerDialog—A dialog with a DatePicker control (see Figure 11.1d).

► ProgressDialog—A dialog with a determinate or indeterminate ProgressBar control (see Figure 11.1e).

► TimePickerDialog—A dialog with a TimePicker control (see Figure 11.1f).
