Default Is it possible to define sub category or user define category for parameters

Is it possible to define sub category or user define category for parameters? The idea is to make parameter groupings so parameters are more readable.

Under the "Properties" section of the strategy, you will see all of your parameter properties.

You will see:

[Category("Parameters")]

above each property. Just change "Paramters" to the name of the category you wish to see.

I already tried that and all it does is make the parameter disappear.

I would double check your code. I just tested here and it works fine.

I have something like this.

Code:
[Description("")]
[Category("Test")]
public int MyInput0
{
    get { return myInput0; }
    set { myInput0 = Math.Max(1, value); }
}

It works in indicators but not on my strategy. Can you check that?

My apologies, this should not work for strategies. Our policy is to maintain inputs under the "Parameters" category.

Ah come on. That makes no sense at all. I have strategies with lots of inputs as im sure plenty others do.

Whats the reasoning behind this policy? To frustrate your users?

Besides its only a visual thing. People should have a choice.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
