Lastbaronchart doesn't work with Open Next Bar

Postby wilkinsw » 09 May 2019

Hi,

Lastbaronchart will never = TRUE in a signal that also possesses "open next bar" anywhere in the code.

I have to use "open next bar". How might I detect the last bar on chart??

Test:

Code: Select all

if LastBarOnChart then begin

raiseruntimeerror("LBOC");

if open next bar > 0 then value99=1;


No error message will be generated until you block out the last line.

Hello wilkinsw,

LastBarOnChart can be used on minute and daily-based resolutions. If your chart's resolution is tick-based - you will need to use LastBarOnChart_s or LastBarOnChart_dt.

I did the test on a 5min interval chart.

Feel free to test it yourself.

wilkinsw, this has been tested on various builds, including the one you are running, and the latest release. Please send me the workspace and export of the study that do not work for you.

Very odd that you can't reproduce this.

wilkinsw,

The behavior you have described can happen only when there are no realtime updates, or the market is closed, or in offline mode.
That is expected, since there is no last code calculation, which is the script execution trigger when Open Next Bar is used.
Therefore, there is no way to get Lastbaronchart = True with Open Next Bar if there is no realtime coming in.
