GetCurrentAskVolume()

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Definition

Returns the current real-time ask volume.

 

Notes:

1. When accessed during State.Historical, the Volume of the evaluated bar series is substituted.  To access historical Ask Volumes, please see Developing for Tick Replay.

2. The GetCurrentAskVolume() method runs on the bar series currently updating determined by the BarsInProgress property.  For multi-instrument scripts, an additional int "barsSeriesIndex" parameter can be supplied which forces the method to run on an supplementary bar series.

 

 

Method Return Value

A long value representing the current ask volume.

 

Syntax
GetCurrentAskVolume()
GetCurrentAskVolume(int barsSeriesIndex)

 

Parameters

barsSeriesIndex

An int value determining the bar series the method runs. Note:  This optional parameter is reserved for multi-instrument scripts
