How to access the date of last bar on chart in StartCalc method

Postby trd001 » 01 Apr 2019

Hi,

I'd be very grateful if someone could answer these related questions:

1. How can I get the date of the last bar on chart in StartCalc method?
2. Is it possible to access the "Data Range" data ("from", "to") from the Format Instrument / Settings tab?
3. In general, how can I iterate thru the data of all bars before CalcBar()-method is called?

Thanks for your help, trd001

Hello, trd001,

Please find the answers below:
1) You cannot get it in StartCalc method. One can access data series only using CalcBar method.
2) Yes, for example:

Code: Select all

Output.WriteLine("From: {0}, To: {1}", Bars.Info.Request.From, Bars.Info.Request.To);
3) There is no such capability.
