how to flat possition at the end of day?

i have written a trading system for bectesting, the only thing that doesnt work is closing the possition at the end of the day (or at a particular time specified in my input)

the code that i use for flat is this

 
Code
		s_SCPositionData pozice;
		sc.GetTradePosition(pozice);

		if (pozice.PositionQuantity != 0) {
			if (sc.BaseDateTimeIn[sc.Index].GetTime() >= konec_rth.GetTime()) {
				sc.FlattenAndCancelAllOrders();
			}
very sipmle and clead, but it doesnt work and the possitiong is still open even after the specified time "konec-rth" is my variable input where i specify the time

does anyone can give me a hint how to make it work?

otherwise all the bectest are useless

sc.BaseDateTimeIn[sc.Index] is equal to the starting time of a bar.

I believe if you remove the .GetTime() from this member it should work.

Recommend under such circumstances use IDE: https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/UsingVisualCPlusPlus.php
and DEBUG mode.

Simply create a breakpoint and look to which values your variables are equal.
