Android: How to show an activity as a dialog

This post is part of a series on Android UI nuances. After releasing my app on playstore I thought I would add my answers to the contributions on stackoverflow.

How do you make an activity behave like a dialog? For example the figure shows a dialog which is an activity.

a) Have your activity ready.
b) On your app's manifest file change the activity as shown below
c) Where DialogTheme is defined in your styles.xml file as follows

That is all to get an activity to behave like a dialog.
