	    private int mMonth;
	    private int mDay;

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);

        // capture our View elements
        mDateDisplay = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dateDisplay);
        mPickDate = (Button) findViewById(R.id.pickDate);

        // add a click listener to the button
        mPickDate.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(View v) {
                showDialog(DATE_DIALOG_ID);
            }

        // get the current date
        final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();

        mMonth = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
        mDay = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

        // display the current date (this method is below)
        updateDisplay();

    // updates the date in the TextView
    private void updateDisplay() {
        mDateDisplay.setText(getString(R.string.strSelectedDate,
            new StringBuilder()
                    // Month is 0 based so add 1

                    .append(mDay).append("-")
                    .append(mYear).append(" ")));
    }

    // the callback received when the user "sets" the date in the dialog
    private DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener mDateSetListener =
            new DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener() {

                public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year,
                                      int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
