Advanced custom study

Support Request:
[2018-01-02 17:06:16]
User558377 - Posts: 18
I have some advanced custom studies that were developed some years ago. They worked like a charm but now they won't compile. My developer is busy at the moment but he looked at the error log and seems to think that you guys must have had some changes to the syntax. Can you point me to some documentation that might help us figure it out? Thank you and happy new year to all. Here is the error. I would be willing to pay for phone and or remote support if that is an option. Thank you

Change this line from:
SCDLLInit("ActiveMatrixDelux v7m6")
To:
SCDLLName("ActiveMatrixDelux v7m6")

Change:
DRAWSTYLE_DONOTDRAW

To:
DRAWSTYLE_HIDDEN

Let us know if you need more help.

Thank you for the reply. I seem to have gotten further but still no success. Here is my current error.

This has a space at the end:
#include <sierrachart.h >

It needs to be:
#include <sierrachart.h>

In regards to:
CustomDLLName("ActiveMatrixDelux v7m6")

Where did you get CustomDLLName from?

It should be as was previously said:
SCDLLName("ActiveMatrixDelux v7m6")

OK we see CustomDLLName is used in the documentation. We will add support for that particular identifier name as well.

Make sure there is only one SCDLLName in the source code file.

This code must be really old. How is it that you are using this variable?:
sg.ReferencesOtherChart

We actually remember that ACSIL variable. It really is old and from many many years ago.

Just remove it. It is no longer needed.

I'm having an issue where the chart is no longer plotting arrows on chart region 1. I submitted a log for review. I don't know if that was the right approach. Let me know what I can do. It's old code that used to work it seems that I'm using outdated syntax. I tried this DRAWSTYLE_ARROW_DOWN to no avail. Thanks for the help. p.s. this is an advanced custom study we made

This is clearly something that you need to figure out and determine on your side. This is not within the scope of our support. A Message Log here is meaningless.

For programming help, refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartStudyAndSystemProgrammers.php


Although we recommend looking at some examples. Look at the examples in TradingSystem.cpp which also use arrows. And refer to the ACSIL documentation:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ACSIL_Members_scSubgraph.html

Also there have been no changes with working with study Subgraphs. Those are the same as always.

sg.CrossOver

pardon my lack of knowledge. Is this still used?

were trying to figure out if some functions have been changed. Like you said the code is old.

Do you see anything wrong here? Thank you kindly

SCFloatArray TRIXSmallLengthSubgraphArray;
sg.GetStudyArray(1, 5, TRIXSmallLengthSubgraphArray);
