First, the alarmmanager class is mainly used to develop mobile alarm clocks. The alarmmanager class provides a way to access the system's timing services.Developers can set an application to be executed at some point in the future in the program.When the alarmmanager time is up,The registered intent object will be broadcast by the system.The target program is then started.

Second, when the program needs to use the alarmmanager class, you can get the alarmmanager object through the getsystemservice (context.alarm_service) method of the context object.

The following procedure uses the time selection dialog to set the time of the alarm.
