Conditional breakpoints in Visual Studio debugging of NinjaScript

Using NT7 and Visual Studio Community 2013.

I'm having trouble with conditional breakpoints. Hit count breakpoints work fine, so I think I must be entering the condition incorrectly. For example, if I'm trying to break execution when CurrentBar is 100, I've tried the following:

CurrentBar == 100 (gets executed through without stopping)
"CurrentBar" == 100 (error msg)
CurrentBar = 100 (error msg)
"CurrentBar == 100" (error msg)

Can you see where I'm going wrong?

Edit: So it's not a syntax problem. It simply won't work using CurrentBar. An easy solution is to declare a local variable and set it equal to CurrentBar; then create a conditional breakpoint using that variable.

I tried this:

			int day = Time[0].Day;
			int hour = Time[0].Hour;
			int minute = Time[0].Minute;
			int second = Time[0].Second;
			bool hb = Time[0].Day == 31 &&  Time[0].Hour == 21 && Time[0].Minute == 2 && Time[0].Second >= 26;
and condition You can see in attach.

This variant work quick, gives no error, but program don't stop at breakpoint!!
