    order fields

    Hello, i wanted to check if the Name field in the order object can be used to store some custom informational detail ie a string - so this can be used when reviewing the orders tab in the control panel. OR is this used by the broker and will overwrite anything written there - if this field is not available which field can be used to store a custom string
    thanks

    Hello explorer101,

    Thank you for your note.

    The name field is just a string representing the name of an order which can be provided by the entry or exit signal name. If you are placing an order from a NinjaScript strategy, you can put whatever string you like in this field for signal name.

    Here's a link to our help guide on the Order object:

    Please let us know if we may be of further assistance to you.

      I am using the Addon Account->CreateOrder which is then submitted via Submit() i see the Name field here is max 50 characters and is NOT using StartAtmStrategy()
      so this would also be fine ? is this the only field i can really use to put in a custom string?
      thanks

        Hello explorer101,

        Thank you for your reply.

        Yes, that would be the only option to put your custom string. It's the same as the Name when using an order object from a strategy.
