    TriggerCustomEvent() - Clarify object state

    NT Team,

    From the UserGuide, when triggering a custom event, TriggerCustomEvent reliably synchronises all internal indexes and pointers to the current bar for access in subsequent code.
    Code:
    TriggerCustomEvent(Action<object> customEvent, object state)
    Where TriggerCustomEvent is used purely to synchonise internal indexes, what object state should be used? Please advise and, if possible, explain your logic.

    For example, while "Close[0]" could be passed through, it would not be used in any of my subsequent code. I do not understand the logic of this. However, I do see the logic where the parameter is used in subsequent code as in the UserGuide example.

    Hello Shansen,

    Thank you for your note.

    If you are just looking to update the script, it doesn’t matter what object you pass to the method for its state parameter. The state parameter is just an arbitrary object, you could pass it any object for example Close[0], or Null as long as you don’t try to reference the object.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
