    Accessing the "Instrument Link" from code

    Given a chart window instance, is it possible to determine programmatically which Instrument/Timeframe Link option is selected? Just the colour value or a numerical equivalent value?

    I could probably work it out given the Automation IDs for the instrument/timeframe link unless there's an easier way.


    Thank you!

    Hello Reach4thelasers,

    Thank you for writing in.

    I have put together a sample indicator which will print to the output window the Instrument Selected as well as the time frame.

    In the sample, under OnBarUpdate the statements relating to the following two variables are what you are looking for.

    Code:
    xInstrumentSelectedMenuDropDown
    xTimeSelected

      Hey Alan, thanks for the response. I think you misunderstood me. It is the Instrument LINK I want to determine; not the instrument. The colored box on the top right of the window that makes the charts change together.... Need to know the color link or some numerical equivalent so that I can replicate an action between a chart and also its linked charts.

        Hello reach4thelasers,

        I have revised the indicator to include print statements of the instrument and interval link colors.
