How to get symbol name of realtime data in merged chart?

Postby glam_100 » 13 Apr 2011

Hi,

In merged charts only the symbol name of the historical data is shown. I'm trying to create an indicator to show the name of the realtime data because I have no way to tell if the realtime data is setup by looking at the chart alone.

I found that "getSymbolName" would only return the symbol of the historical data. Is there a way to get the symbol name of the realtime data?

Thanks!

Currently that is not possible. Only the name of the first data series is shown in the status bar and returned through the code (in your case it's the historical data feed). If you want to see this changed, please add a feature request to our PM.
