@Unrealised Pips in status bar: 01 Dec 2022, 09:48
I don't like having the monetary P&L at the bottom of my screen as I don't want the money to influence my trading. I like making my decisions based on the charts, not the money. However I do like to keep an eye on it based on how many pips I'm in profit/loss. In the Analyse area of cTrader it displays the total pips you've made or lost for any given timeframe. Is it possible to have this added to the status bar at the bottom of the Info panel at the bottom of the Trade window? It would be nice to have this as a column (optional column?) in the Positions and History tabs.
@Backtesting in .NET 6 not working. .NET4 works: 25 Nov 2022, 14:49
Unfortunately the troubleshooting did not help us reproducing this behavior. Does this still happen in 4.5.1? If yes, can you send us the log?
Thanks for following up. I submitted a support request via cTrader yesterday which has a link to this thread in it. However, to clarify here, I've updated to 4.5.1 and am still getting the same results.
I even wiped my hard drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows 11, along with everything else and still the same problem.
Sorry if I'm being ignorant but are you referring to the log tab of the backtest? If so, these are the only two entries.
24/10/2022 00:00:00.000 | CBot instance [New cBot, EURUSD, h1] started.
24/10/2022 00:00:00.000 | CBot instance [New cBot, EURUSD, h1] process was unexpectedly terminated.
That is from a newly created bot without any changes made to it at all.
@MarketSession not available in VS2022: 24 Nov 2022, 21:40
I've updated to cTrader 4.5.1 and in the code editor within cTrader I get MarketSession but it's missing when editing in VS. Are there any steps required to make it available?
@VS2022 integration flaws: 24 Nov 2022, 11:19
Try adding the project to the solution manually.
Thanks, I already did that and it works but it's a work around, so a fix is still needed for Spotware i think, hence the Post.
I have this same problem. I found that when selecting Edit in Visual Studio it was creating a new csproj file with my computers hostname appended to the filename. I found that deleting the original csproj file created by cTrader and renaming the new csproj file by deleting the hostname portion did the trick.
However, as you say, it's a workaround.
@Backtesting in .NET 6 not working. .NET4 works: 13 Nov 2022, 08:59
When I create a bot in cTrader (4.4.19) and I set up a back test, it seems to just skip the back test, even if the Visual Mode is enabled. Example in the video below.
@Indicators crash when IsOverlay = true: 21 Oct 2022, 16:25
Sweet thanks for letting me know
It's a new feature of cTrader but hopefully it will be rolled back in an upcoming update.
@Indicators crash when IsOverlay = true: 21 Oct 2022, 14:05
This is related to a post I made a couple of weeks back but didn't get any help with it.
When I create an indicator using .NET6, I get the following when I add it to a chart:
Currently, all the indicator does is create a single StackPanel, with a Single Textblock in it. By default it doesn't have a IsOverlay parameter set and so defaults to false. When I set IsOverlay = true so the stackpanel is displayed in the price chart, I get this error. I can't figure out how to debug it as the problem occurs in the Indicator declaration before the Initialize method is even invoked.
@4.4.15 Not saving layout of drawings: 21 Oct 2022, 13:51
Is it possible to record a video demonstrating this issue?
I think I may have found the issue. I run an instance of cTrader on a VM to test bots, so I think when I open cTrader on my laptop, it's picking up the configuration from the bot testing VM
@4.4.15 Not saving layout of drawings: 21 Oct 2022, 08:19
When I open cTrader, the window layout as well as drawing and any indicators I may have added during my session aren't saved, it will also add old drawings back that I had deleted. It reverts to a layout I had a week or so ago. I therefore have to recreate everything every time I open cTrader.
Is there a way to fix this?
@"Apply as default settings for.." do not work (still): 15 Oct 2022, 12:15
Thanks for the reply! Really? Could this not be implemented? Would be a very nice feature to have and save a lot of faffing around.
That was always like this by design. You cannot save a default color.
I would be very nice to be able to set custom defaults and not just colour. For example, I prefer to have the trend line set to a thickness of 2. It gets very tiresome to have to right-click every single trend line and change it from a thickness of 1 to 2. Maybe I'm missing something but before the new drawing tools menu was implemented, we could set the drawing tools to have defaults going forward, now we can't?
