It's great that you are now supporting milliseconds. Can you please provide a use example for millisecondsfromdatetime? I am not clear on what to place into the one parameter this function requires and there is no documentation in the keyword alphabetical index other than to say "reserved for future use". (I simply want to reference the milliseconds of each bar's time stamp in power language.)

MillisecondsFromDateTime(DateTtime); will return 687.00 if the time stamp of the current bar is 11:57:07.687
