<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:gravity="center|center_vertical"
    android:background="@drawable/android_3"
    >

<DigitalClock
	android:text="Digital Clock"
	android:id="@+id/DigitalClock01"
	android:layout_width="wrap_content"
	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
	android:background="@drawable/header_bg"
