UIDatePicker, setting maximum and minimum dates based on todays date

If I have a UIDatePicker, and I wish to set the minimum and maximum date range to be between thirty years ago and thirty years in the future, how would I set that up?

Answer

Not tested, but you probably want something like this.

NSCalendar *calendar = [[NSCalendar alloc] initWithCalendarIdentifier:NSGregorianCalendar];
NSDate *currentDate = [NSDate date];
NSDateComponents *comps = [[NSDateComponents alloc] init];
[comps setYear:30];
NSDate *maxDate = [calendar dateByAddingComponents:comps toDate:currentDate options:0];
[comps setYear:-30];
NSDate *minDate = [calendar dateByAddingComponents:comps toDate:currentDate options:0];

[datePicker setMaximumDate:maxDate];
[datePicker setMinimumDate:minDate];
