Methods, Subroutines ?????

Postby skan » 18 Aug 2011

Hello
How can I code subroutines on Multicharts?
I need to reuse part of my code several times.

Somebody advised me to you use something like:

Code: Select all

Method double Subroutine1(double dou) begin
    if t=1200 then Buy this bar;   
    Return dou*2;
end; 
value1=Subroutine1(c);
setexitonclose;


But I could find any documentation on "method".

Can I use sell and buy orders within the subroutine?, How do I invoke it?

Hello Skan

You could code your routine in a function. It will have the same result as a sub-routine. As example, you could open any function in your editor and see how it is designed.

Hi,

I think you can pout order only in strategy, not in function.

So, in the example given initialy with a "Buy oder", function is not possible

In my opinion, there is no solution for making a "subroutine" with order inside.

Order are possible only in Strategy

That's why I was advised to use "method"

Seems to be really new. never heard before.

Powerlanguage editor : (MC 7.0 last relase)
type method, hit F1 :

Supported by PowerLanguage.
A detailed description and usage examples will be presented in the documentation accompanying the next release of MultiCharts.

Hope MC support will answer you...
