TimeGMT

Returns the GMT, which is calculated taking into account the DST switch by the local time on the computer where the client terminal is running. There are 2 variants of the function.

Call without parameters

datetime  TimeGMT();

Call with MqlDateTime type parameter

datetime  TimeGMT(
   MqlDateTime&  dt_struct      // Variable of structure type
   );

Parameters

dt_struct

[out]  Variable of structure type MqlDateTime.

Return Value

Value of datetime type

Note

If the MqlDateTime structure type variable has been passed as a parameter, it is filled accordingly.

To arrange high-resolution counters and timers, use the GetTickCount() function, which produces values in milliseconds.

During testing in the strategy tester, TimeGMT() is always equal to TimeTradeServer() simulated server time.
