Description

Currently the .RLD parameter of the Command Line has a large gap between '.rld glob' (for a global reload) and '.rld int 1 day' (for the current chart reload).

It would be helpful if there were more steps in-between, for example:

  • Reload all main data series, but not all subcharts;
  • Reload all data series in the current workspace;
  • Reload all data series from a specific data feed.

It would also be helpful if it would be possible to specify the data number in the Command Line command.

See examples here: http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=45999&p=104624#p104624

More limitations that the Command Line imposes:
For example:
Data 1, 10 min
Data 2, 30 min
Goal: reload 3 days of data from data series 2.
Cannot
be done; the .rld int = 3 days res = 30 min command also causes Data 1
to reload. In other words, the time period for the reload of the second
data series cannot be specified.
Other example:
Data 1, 10 min
Data 2, 30 min
Data 3, 30 min
Goal: reload the data symbol from data 2.
Cannot be done; currently either all sub-charts have to be reloaded or none at all.


Why not add a data parameter to the .rld command, that defaults to 1 if not specified?
For example:
.rld data = 2 int = 3 days: reload three days worth of data from data 2.
.rld int = 10 days: reload 10 days worth of data from data 1.
Edit: What I'd also would like is that the commands can be combined; for example:
.rld res = 10 minute int = 5 days

Also, could options for changing the parameters of strategies or indicators that are inserted programmatically be added?

Oops, that previous comment is misplaced here but should be placed below the other Command Line request here: http://www.multicharts.com/pm/viewissue.php?issue_no=MC-1612

Though I suppose it would be easier to change the Command Line in one go, so if you (MultiCharts) are reviewing the current PM, please also take a look at the related 1612.
