iOS Build a Blog Reader iPhone App Adapting Data for Display Formatting Dates with NSDateFormatter

Adapting Data for Display

Challenge # 2

Using NSDate create a date object that is 10 days from today and call it 'futureDate'.

My code:

NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 60 * 60 * 24 * 10; NSDate *futureDate = [NSDate dateWithTimeIntervalSinceNow:secondsPerDay];


Bummer! Compilation Error! Please check your syntax and use the code that is provided for you in your implementation.

dont change the secondsPerDay variable. just multiply it by 10 in the method call. also make sure you have the code from task 1 present as well:

NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 60 * 60 * 24;
NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
// Add your code below
NSDate *today = [NSDate date];
//multiply the secondsPerDay interval by 10, to get the seconds in 10 days
NSDate *futureDate =  [NSDate dateWithTimeIntervalSinceNow:secondsPerDay * 10];

Thanks bud!
