How do I get at the datetime string?  In the sense that the following code will then work:

 

        datetime now = TimeCurrent();
        
        almostUniqueIndex = StringSubstr(now, StringLen(now) - 3) + WindowsTotal();

 

I'm in the processing of migrating legacy mql4 to updated mql4.

Found it:

TimeToStr

Converts value containing time in seconds that has passed since January 1, 1970, into a string of "yyyy.mm.dd hh:mi" format.

string  TimeToStr(
   datetime  value,                           // value
   int       mode=TIME_DATE|TIME_MINUTES      // format
   );

Thanx.  So what I really need is TimeToString with TIME_SECONDS and the others or'd in.
