    What's the Add() return value?

    Hi,

    Would like to know what value does the Add("NewInstrument") returns when it fails to add the specified instrument in Initialize()?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    CK

    You will get an error to the output window with something like this and the strategy will disable itself

    **NT** The strategy 'YourStrategy/8fa33115d674453c8a2ef7bf33e13639' has called the Add() method with an invalid instrument.......

    Let me know if I misunderstood your question.

      Does Add(..) return any value so that I could do something programmatically in case the specified instrument is not supported? If not, is there any other way?

      Thanks.

        Thanks.
        Reading the help - there is no return on this call.

        You might want to try/catch/test for an exception... but might be unlikely.

          Hello CK,

          Thank you for your response.

          The Strategy will disable and there will not be any value returned.
