The new MQL4 introduced a function named ShortToString which is supposed to convert a Unicode character code to the equivalent character, but when I use it all I see for the most part is a question mark instead of the character.

Hello, I'm working on an expert that will sometimes use sell-stop orders to get out of a position, rather than just having a stop-loss on that position. For example, if a long order for EURUSD has been placed at 1.0000, it may place sell-stop orders at 0.9950, 0.9900 and 0.9850 so that these orders...
