    When and how is FromEntrySignal field set in an order?

    There is a field "FromEntrySignal" in each Order object. When and how is it set? I am using SubmitOrderUnmanaged(int selectedBarsInProgress, OrderAction orderAction, OrderType orderType, int quantity, double limitPrice, double stopPrice, string oco, string signalName) to submit orders. It seems signalName passed to SubmitOrderUnmanaged() would be shown as Order.Name, and the FromEntrySignal field is always empty in my examples.

    Never mind. I figured it out by myself. It seems FromEntrySignal is only populated while submitting managed orders so as to tie the exit/stop/takeprofit orders to an entry order.

      Hello clearpicks,

      Thank you for your note.

      Correct, FromEntrySignal would only be used under the managed approach and is used for things such as tying together Stop Loss/Profit Target orders, checking the status of that order, managing entries per direction, etc.

      Please see under Order Entry Methods at the following link,

      Please let us know if you need further assistance.
