Audio alert for Signals

Postby Tiong Chye Tan » 07 Jul 2008

Hi there,

Currently I can enable audio alerts for "Studies".

However I'm wondering if I can also have audio alerts for "Signals" too? If so, how do I go about it?

What I've done is make a study with my system rules, then apply the study to my chart and activate the alert.

Thanks Steven for your reply.

One of the Signals I use is the 2 EMA crosses to generate a signal. Since there are already visual alerts, it shouldn't be complicated to introduce an audio alert too...

I don't think I can duplicate that using just Studies alone....

You can use PlaySound in your signal code :)

Create sound name as input variable and change it dynamically for each signal. The playsound is much better then alert sound as you actually can obtain whatever sound you need based at different indicator values!

I use this to make a .wav file

then I play it when something happens and I don't even have to be looking at the screen to know what is going on.

Hope that helps,
