Seems like a simple thing but I can't seem to find a way to do it.
It would be great to see a couple different methods.
@Chuck's answer is correct, and lead me to the following code. Thought I'd share:
NSDateComponents *comps = [[NSDateComponents alloc] init]; [comps setDay:10]; [comps setMonth:10]; [comps setYear:2010]; self.timestamp = [[NSCalendar currentCalendar] dateFromComponents:comps];
