I am using a default datePicker dialog in my application for Android honecomb tablet.  The users of the application are complaining that the DatePicker dialog box is small and they want it to almost bigger like a full screen so it can be more easier for them to select a date.

Any one has any idea, how I can customize default DatePicker Dialog in Android?

although they don't suggest a solution they suggest some workaround:

I've been using modified dialogs for that a while ago using internal classes from Android OS, but here is nicer solution:
