    Addon Positions Orders and lock

    Hello,
    In my application/Addon I am checking on Positions for the Account and the orders on the account too. In the Help pages the example of iterating over Positions :
    it uses the lock statement

    lock (Account.Positions)
    {

    }

    whereas the example of the Orders in help does not

    I am iterating over these with the foreach and wondered if it was recommended to use the lock if i am just 'read only' of these values to get a current snapshot? In what instance would the lock be recommended ie if attempt to update Position information during a read.

    Will this cause any issue (not using lock or using lock) as my strategy/addon runs which will then update position / order information?

    thanks

    Hello, soulfx.

    Thanks for the post.

    The locks are used to prevent access violation exceptions/in-flight changes to the property. It is recommended to use locks wherever possible to prevent these violations since you might have other strategies that access the Accounts class. The issues that could arise from not using locks would be the inability to read the data. So using a lock on Account's properties being read would be the best way to prevent errors, even though some examples do not use locks.
