If it is for date, I would probably advise you to use the DatePicker which looks like this. Else if it's for time then probably you may want something like this.

However if you are looking for something like a NumberPicker, it's seems to be only available API 11 and up. Therefore if you want, you may need to customize your own.


Hey i think just take a look at this wheel control.. The custom control created by third party person. He also given other details in his blog.. which you can modify it if you want..


Created my own, which works great for me. The Galley control helped a lot. Feel free to point out any issues though.
