Manual Entry to Scanner

Postby konstantin » 07 Oct 2009

Is it possible to enter text or dates manually into a scanner column?
e.g. earnings release date and then sort according to the earnings release date, or priority A / B / C and then sort according to priority?

you can create an indicator with the following code. It will do the trick.
(or add to your existing code)


Code: Select all

input:
input$("ABC");

plot1(input$);

Thank you TJ.

But how can I enter different inputs for each symbol?
e.g. input "ABC" for MSFT and input "DEF" for INTL
