    Disable Strategy

    Hello

    On NT7 I could use the Disable() method in order to stop my strategy as if the 'Enabled' check box was checked off by the user. On NT8 that code was changed to SetState(State.Terminated).
    The problem with that is once this code is executed, the 'Enabled' check box is grayed out on the 'Strategies' tab so it cannot be re-enabled (at least when I use historical play back). Is there a way to change this behavior so the check box will still be available?

    Thanks.

    Hello kiss987,

    Thank you for your note.

    Setting a state to state.terminated is not supported nor recommended.

    I've attached a strategy which uses a public static bool to prevent a strategy from running that you could use as a framework for doing what you'd like to do. The attached file contains a addon which has a button that will stop a strategy from processing.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

      Thank you for your reply

      On your sample the strategy is still running, it's just doesn't do anything because stopRunningStrategyBool is set to true. I want the strategy to completely stopped as if the user unchecked the 'enable' check box

        Is there any way to automatically "Check" / "Uncheck" the checkbox for particular strategy in "Strategies" tab? Maybe using some third party tools?

          This would not be supported but I will add your vote to a feature request tracking this.
