Can the "ORDER LABEL" be a string variable

Postby mefTrader » 03 Apr 2012

If we have something like

Code: Select all


Sell ("Exit") 100 shares this bar on close



Can the 'Order Label' i.e "Exit" be a string variable ??

e.g

Code: Select all

vars: string order_label("");

order_label="ThisExit";
order_label=NumtoStr(1,0);

Sell (order_label) 100 shares this bar on close;


Would this work do you think?

If so what is the limit to the number of characters?
Thanks

if you can use a string variable as order reference,
when something goes wrong, it would be impossible to trace and debug.
