Better remove the constructor with three arguments

TimePreference(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle)

and use super() in the one with two:

public TimePreference(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
  super(context, attrs);
  setPositiveButtonText("Set");
  setNegativeButtonText("Cancel");
}

Otherwise the title is not displayed correctly.

I am using this code for setting notification time. My question is how can I read these values like 1:00 AM from another activity?
