    Code snippet based on Instrument Type

    Hello,

    I found out that there is a possibility to code based on the instrument type ie. the Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType.

    Is there a code snippet available for the following
    If
    InstrumentType is Currency give value 1
    else if
    InstrumentType is Future give value 2
    else
    give value 0


    or would it be possible to have a code snippet sample here as an answer. Thank you

    Hello MickeyHR,
    Yes, you can simply cast the InstrumentType to an integer depending on what you are trying to do.

    A sample code will be like:

    Code:
    int i = (int)Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType;

      Why not just directly use the enumeration: the code is much more readable that way.

        Sorry, but I haven't the foggiest idea what you are writing about

          Ok. Saw that one already in the reference... However, the following doesn't at least work (so... Obviously I don't get this):
          Code:
          int instrument = (int)Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType;
          			double avariable = 0;
          			if
          				(
          				instrument == Currency;
          				)
          			{
          				avariable = earliervariable+1;
          			}
          			 else if	
          				(
          				instrument == Future || instrument == Option || instrument == Stock
          				)
          			{
          				avariable = earliervariable+2;
          			}
          			else	
          				
          				avariable = earliervariable+3;
          Would you (or anyone else fort that matter) care to elaborate what I'm doing wrong here. Thank You again

            Hello MickeyHR,
            You can use the below if else statement to do it.

            Code:
            if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType == InstrumentType.Currency)
            {  //do something }
            else if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType == InstrumentType.Future)
            {  //do something }
            else { //do something }

            Alternatively you can directly assign it as:

            Code:
            int avariable = (int) Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType + 1;
