Robot Inheritance Problem


In cAlgo it does not pick up (show under new instance when added) the inherited public properties (market with Parameter attribute etc.) of my base robots when I reference it in another cAlgo robot.

Could you please release a new version with this bug fixed.

Thank you.

We do not have plans to support inheritance of Parameters from base class. As a workaround you can declare parameter in base class as virtual property and override it in the inherited class.

Base class:

    public class BaseCBot : Robot
        [Parameter(DefaultValue = 10)]
        public virtual double Parameter { get; set; }

Inherited class:

    public class NewcBot : BaseCBot
        public override double Parameter { get; set; }

Any revision of plans now, in 2021, to allow properties from a base class to show up in the cAlgo robot GUI (under Parameters)? The above solution makes sense only when there are a few parameters. In case there are many/several, and they become common among many robots, a lot of duplicate code is needed.


Just found out here, cTDN Forum - Inherited Parameter Attributes (, that this is planned to be released in cTrader Desktop v4.2 - great!
