Check for time

hi there,
I'm doing a calendar. And this calendar allows users to enter events as reminder. They will key in the details and more importantly the time to activate the reminder.
So was think how do i code so when the application is running, it will keep checking on the phone time against the scheduled time.

Use the Timer and TimerTask classes (in java.util).

You can schedule a task to be run periodically. That task can check the current time against the scheduled time and do whatever is required at the scheduled time.

Alternatively (and probably a better solution) you can schedule your task to be run at the specified time.
