    Strategy not picking up OnRender() method

    I am trying to make a Strategy that enters a long order every time I click on a price:

    Code:
            private double lastValue;
    
            protected override void OnRender(ChartControl chartControl, ChartScale chartScale)
            {
                Point cursorPoint = chartControl.MouseDownPoint;
    
                if (chartScale.GetValueByYWpf(cursorPoint.Y) != lastValue)
                {
                    Print(String.Format("Mouse clicked at price {0}", chartScale.GetValueByYWpf(cursorPoint.Y)));
                    EnterLongStopMarket(lastValue, "long"+CurrentBar.ToString());
                }
    
                lastValue = chartScale.GetValueByYWpf(cursorPoint.Y);
            }
    But it doesn't seem to pick up any clicks from the mouse, even though on an Indicator it does (but I can't use an Indicator since I can't place orders on them).

    Welcome to the forums daigo1!

    The OnRender code works, but you are not checking for any mouse clicks before submitting the order. When I test, an order is submitted immediately and then the strategy disables because of an order being submitted to an invalid price.

    I have attached an example strategy that can demonstrate using mouse clicks to submit orders.

    We look forward to assisting.
