Escape character in EasyLanguage

Postby flyscalper » 28 Jun 2012

Hello,

I need to write some data from a signal to a file. The problem is that the data I need to write contains double quotes, and I do not know what is the escape sequence in easylanguage.

Anybody knows it?

Un saludo,

Pablo

Hi Pablo,

not sure if I understand your request correctly, but the reserved word DoubleQuote might work for you.

DoubleQuote
Displays the double-quote (") character in a string.

Example
This example demonstrates how the word Hello in double quotes can be displayed on the last bar above High:

Variable: ID(-1);
If LastBarOnChart Then
ID = Text_New(Date, Time, High + 1 Point, DoubleQuote + "Hello" + DoubleQuote);

Yes, that is exactly what I needed.

Thanks a lot,
