Merging IB Historical and PATs realtime on a chart

Postby aljafp » 19 Dec 2009

hi,
Say i plot a "symbol" with historical from IB merge with real time data from PATS.

If my code calls getSymbolName, will it be IB's symbol name or PATs ?
What about getExchangeName ?

thanks

you can test it out with :

Print( "symbol=" + getExchangeName );


you will see the result in the PowerLanguageEditor Output Window.

I know i can test it out.
But i currently do not have such a setup yet.

I am doing forward planning as i plan on signing up with brokerage.
I am deciding on the platform to use PATs or X_Trader.

So i would like to know before hand.. what's the result.

So MC do you guys know the answer ?

thanks
