At Uni last year I wrote a program in pure Java to help manage my money. Recently I've decided to re-write this program using Cocoa and Objective-C. I've worked out most of the back-end of it, but there's one thing I need to sort out first. Here is the prototype interface I've been working on: I would like to be able to set the top NSDatePicker to the current system date. I would then use the value from the user-definable NSDatePicker at the bottom to calculate how long is left in the current term. If anyone knows how to set an NSDatePicker to the current system time I would be grateful if you let me know!
