When I try to access the current symbol using the following:

 
Code
SCString symbol = OrderDetails.Symbol;
I get m_1000889345739845 RTY-21CME in the contents. How do we convert this to a string?

Is there a cleaner solution?

A good way to find answers to your ACSIL questions is to use Google and configure your search query something like this:

sierra chart acsil "whatever you are looking for"

So for the question you asked:

sierra chart acsil get symbol from chart

That should return a number of links to pertinent SC documentation, as well as posts by others on the SC Support Board who have asked a similar question and *may* have gotten a response from SC (assuming SC was in the mood to answer questions that day!) lol

Give it a shot. I think you will find your answer.

This is excellent advice for finding the answer to any Sierra Chart question, not just ACSIL ones. SC has extremely detailed Help pages and everything is covered, IF you can just find it. But their search facility is terrible and whatever ideas they have about organizing the Help topics are known only to them. I hit on using Google to find the SC Help page I needed, and it works very well. And as @ondafringe says, you can sometimes get a hit on your exact issue in the Support Board, which is a pleasant surprise when it happens. The Support Board can be very valuable, and is close to unsearchable without Google.

Just a general note for SC users who have tried to find things in their documentation and been frustrated. Which is probably all of us.

That would work if you have ensured that the s_SCTradeOrder OrderDetails is correctly populated but since you have provided no code as to what you are doing its impossible to tell why you are not getting the outcome you want.

symbol.GetChars() may work.
