the remaining time of current candle to close?

most case: candle time used integer at it period unit, so get time with more precise, the remaining time is their difference.

example: now period in current graph window is 5 min, th time of current candle to close or open will only be 5 and its multiple.

so use the time not multipleof 5 min, you can get their difference.

not the candle time is server time, your computer's time maybe have some error.

attached may be of use: simple/configurable <secsUsed>/<secsInBar> indicator.

4got mention - <secsUsed> will only update when indicator gets next data tic. must be more clever stuff - maybe use Win API...

IF any make more clever THEN perhaps they post on this thread, OK?
