    Settings in Strategies Window vs Code

    Another question for the experts...

    When you add a strategy to a chart, under General you have Calculate on bar close, and Exit on close, etc ....

    In your code, you can put under Initialize()
    ExitOnClose = false;

    etc... Now, does this just set the default? Or does it ignore any change the user set on the flag in the window where the strategy is turned on and added to the chart? That is, if the user starts the strategy, but changes the flag to true, which is used?

    Wasn't sure how to test this one.

    Thanks guys.

    Anything in Initialize() can be overridden by the user in the PropertyGrid. If you want to enforce the directive, place it in OnStartup().

      Locke, please see koganam's kind assist below - you can set the defaults this way in Initialize() yes, but user could always override from the UI panel then.

        Thanks for the answers guys. I did notice that if I put it in OnStartUp(), it still gives the user the option to change it to true. In this situation, which will take affect?

        Will it be overridden in OnStartUp() and act as false, but the user thinks they set it to true? I know it's a minor thing...

          Locke,

          Correct, OnStartUp() is called after any changes have been made to the UI panel, when they click Ok to enable it for running. Since this is called after, the OnStartUp() will enforce the new setting being made.
