Action addition

Post by dboanca62 »

Will be possible to add in action option beside message the actual value of any indicator and maybe result of a rule (logical or numeric) ?
Will help to debug any rule witch doesn't perform as expected

It would be possible but we have to think about the way of displaying the information.
As we understand, you need to display information about rules returned values (indicators, rules, conditions, ...).
Displaying them in a Messagebox (like the current print/show rules) would be inefficient since it could appear several times and would flood the user under information.
Maybe, we could display the information in a dedicated window ? Or maybe in the already existing Backtest logs window (under Tools menu) ? If so, this action called "Log" should take in parameter any rule to log the result

Yes, you are right about flooding information, but we don't need to display that on regular backtest...just when needed to debug/checking if rules are fallowed as we want(I'm creating new setup rules just for verification purpose) ...and yes doesn't matter where will be available...still think that on "show message" with option of STOP instead of PAUSE will be easy to fallow execution of rules.
Thank you !
