Launching a dialog from preferences?

Is there a way to launch a dialog (say, the dialog I show to users the
first time they launch the app) from a preferences entry?

I don't see any examples doing this in the API Demos, nor have I seen
it out in the wild.

I do see a class called DialogPreference, but this doesn't seem to be
what I want.

If you just need it from the preferences activity, you could always put
it as an option menu choice.

 Search this list for SeekBarPreference. Marc Tan (thanks again Marc)
shared an example of a DialogPreference subclass which displays a seek
bar. You can use it as a starting point to create your own dialog and
stick whatever you need in it.
