Android Chronometer

Chronometer is a class that implements a simple timer.

You can give it a start time in the elapsedRealtime() timebase, and it counts up from that, or if you don't give it a base time, it will use the time at which you call start(). By default it will display the current timer value in the form "MM:SS" or "H:MM:SS", or you can use setFormat(String) to format the timer value into an arbitrary string.

How can I modify this so that it prints out data in MM:SS:MsMs form?
