    How to fill Strategy column in Trade Performance window NT8

    When running a Trade Performance in NT8 my "Strategy" column always come out empty. Would be beneficial to be able to distinguish between various strategies in the performance window. Does anyone know how to get a strategy to write its name in a way that is picked up by this column?

    Cheers,

    Hello Jesperboll, thanks for your note.

    The SampleMACrossover strategy is displaying for me, as well as saved ATM templates. Its possible the display name is overridden in the strategy. Did you write the strategy? Are you able to view the source code or is this compiled into a dll from a vendor?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Chris,

      I did the strategy in the strategybuilder wizard - is there a particular naming or referencing I need to do in the code to reflect it property? I can view and adjust the code as needed.

      Thx,
      /Jesper

        Hi Jesper, thanks for your reply.

        That is not expected, the DisplayName property is not editable through the builder. Could you kindly Export your script and post it here so I can have a look? Alternatively, send the .zip to platformsupport at ninjatrader.com and reference "Attn ChrisL <forum link> 2193698" in the body of the email.

        I look forward to your reply.

          This random one for example does not write to the Strategy column.

            Hi Jesper thank you for posting that. I am running your script now, I'll let you know what I see once it makes a trade.

              Hi Jesper, thanks for your patience.

              The strategy made a trade and I do see it within the Trade Performance window. In the strategy setup menu, did you erase the "Label" property? This could be the cause. I am running the script again with the label cleared out to see what comes up as the strategy name in Trade Performance.

              I look forward to your reply.

                Hi Chris,

                It suddenly started printing the strategy name fine! Don't know what was wrong initially but all runs well now.

                Thanks a lot!

                  Hello, thanks for your post.

                  There is no particular naming you should stick to except for using special characters (#$%^&*) The "Name" property of the script is what will reflect the display in Trade Performance.

                  Kind regards.
