Digital Clock is a very useful widget in android to show time in your application.
Here is a simple demo on using digital Clock widget.

First In the layout file copy this file.

<?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"
	android:gravity="center|center_vertical"
	android:layout_gravity="center|center_vertical"

	android:layout_margin="10dp">
</DigitalClock>
</LinearLayout>

This creates a digital clock widget in the UI which will automatically update the time from the device.

Now in the java file you can reference it like this.
Since Digital Clock extends TextView you can apply every methods that you apply on a TextView.

        DigitalClock dg;
        dg = (DigitalClock)findViewById(R.id.DigitalClock01);
        dg.setTextColor(Color.RED);
        dg.setTextSize(25f);
