AutoRefresh for ASCII Mapping

Postby lantama » 05 Jan 2010

Hi, we are desperately looking for a solution to Autorefresh Charts with ASCII mapped data (Mapped file will be updated periodically). An ELA function for example would be great. Any hidden features currently available?

Thanks for support

a keyboard macro program might do the trick.


an indicator won't help,
because MultiCharts needs live data for the indicator to refresh.

load the ascii data into excel and beam it from excel via DDE to quotemanager.
In excel you can write a macro wich check every 0,5 second for changes in your ascii files.

Thanks for the recommendations. Guess we will have to implement an external wrapper. Cheers lantama
