Woodies ZLR System Alerts audible setup

Support Request:

In the Woodies ZLR System Settings there is an option to set Alert Number (In:10) for an audible alert.

If this is set for an audible Alert, when the Alert is triggered it repeats the audible alert endlessly or until the alert fails or a new bar prints.

Muting the sound doesn't work as other charts may fire audible alerts and those would be missed. Needless to say, a repeating alert gets annoying very quickly.

Is there some way to have this alert only fire once or trigger on close of the bar like other audible Alerts can be set?

thanks

This study is no longer under active development. Would never touch that in 1,000,000 years.

We had a quick look at it, and the alert handling is reasonable according to how the sc.SetAlert function works. It does not cause an alert sound to play endlessly. The state has to go to false and then back to true for there to be another alert sound. If that happens frequently, during chart updating, then that would be the result but it is not endless.


You can modify the study to meet your own requirements. Refer to:

We do not know. We do not know what you are trying to do.

We have no idea what that study does, without review, and it is not something that we would do.

It is recommended that you go through the documentation here to find what you need:

We have gradually been working on providing the mathematical formulas for each study.
