How to get a "vertical spinner" like used in TimePicker?

 Hi everyone,

The TimePicker widget includes two "vertical spinners" that let the
user pick the hour and minute. How can I make my own "vertical
spinner" to let the user pick an arbitrary number from a range of
values? The available Spinner class is more like a drop-down list,
while I want something that has a number in the middle and + and -
buttons on either side to increase or decrease the value. Does this
kind of widget exist? Or do I have to roll my own with a text field
and two buttons?

 Hola Eugene,

have a look at the discussion under the topic"Reusing the +/- number
spinner from TimePickerDialog?"

Ciao Wolfgang

1. How to consume objects from an external package

I develop an on screen keyboard. This keyboard support several layouts
(english, hebrew, russian, azerty, etc), and support suggestions for
some of them.
As you can understand, if I want to continue to extend the support to
more and more languages, I'll end up with a huge APK file.
So I started to look for a way to consume objects from external
package. e.g., let say the user wont english and hebrew support, then
all he/she needs to do, is to install the my keyboard application, and
then install the language packages he/she are interested in, and the
main keyboard application will consume the concrete keyboard objects
from the external packages.

Is something like that possible in Android? Can I load/instantize a
type from another package?
