How to cancel an order at a specific time

Hi Guys,

I have a problem with NT7. I am running a multi time frame strategy using 60 minutes as primary time frame to generate trading signals (BarsArray[0]) and using 1 minute as secondary time frame to execute orders. I would like my limit order to be valid only until 1 minute to the end of the primary time frame. I was thinking this order could of worked, but it is not, it's returning a compiling error, could anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?

 
Code
primarytimeFrame = 60;
secondaryTimeFrame = 1;

if(BarsInProgress == 1)
{	
	if (longCondition == true)
		{
			entryOrderLong = EnterLongLimit(1, true, 1, Low[0],"Long");
		}
//Cancel long order if not done within 1 minute to the end of primary time frame if(ToTime(Times[1][0] == Times[0][0].AddMinutes(primaryTimeFrame-1)) && entryOrderLong != null) { CancelOrder(entryOrderLong); }
}
I get an error message that says:
 
Code
Cannot implicitly convert type "System.DateTime" to " double"
Strategy.Base.ToDate(System.DateTime) has some invalid arguments

To me it looks like you're giving ToTime a boolean rather than a DateTime. But that doesn't seem to be reflected in the error message, so maybe I'm wrong
