Hi,



I need to read The base currency. So I would like to read only first 3 chars of current Symbol() and paste it to the other string parameter in MQL4 code.

For example if current Symbol() is EURUSD I need to read only EUR value (first 3 characters from left).


Has anybody any idea how to resolve this little problem in simple way?



Regards,

StringFormat("%.3s",Symbol())

You can also check that page http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/printf-format-strings.html 

I can imagine most of them, if not all, work in MQL

best regards
