BarsInProgress

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Definition

An index value of the current Bars object that has called the OnBarUpdate() method. In a multi-bars script, the OnBarUpdate() method is called for each Bars object of a script. This flexibility allows you to separate trading logic from different bar events.

 

Notes:

1.In a single Bars script this property will always return an index value of 0 representing the primary Bars and instrument the script is running on.
2.See additional information on running multi-bars scripts.

    }
}
 
protected override void OnBarUpdate()
{
    // Check which Bars object is calling the OnBarUpdate() method
    if (BarsInProgress == 0)
    {
        // A value of zero represents the primary Bars which is the ES 09-14
        // 1 minute chart.
        // Do something within the context of the 1 minute Bars here
    }
    else if (BarsInProgress == 1)
