From MultiCharts
Jump to: navigation, search

Returns a double-precision decimal DateTime value indicating the time of the bar at which a text object with the specified ID number has been placed; returns a value of -2 if the specified object ID number is invalid. The time is indicated in the DateTime format, where the integer portion of the DateTime value indicates the number of days that have elapsed since January 1st, 1900, and the fractional portion of the DateTime value indicates the fraction of the day that has passed since midnight. DateTime is a floating point value with high precision. It allows accessing millisecond time stamps of the bar.

Usage

Text_GetTime_DT(ObjectID)

Where: ObjectID - a numerical expression specifying the object ID number

Notes

An object-specific ID number is returned by Text_New when the text object is created.

Example

Assign a value, indicating the time of the bar at which a text object with the ID number of 3 has been placed, to Value1 variable:

Value1=Text_GetTime_DT(3);
