Dear Sirs,
I'm looking for a reliable data feeder for cryptocurrency charts. Currently trying your software as the one. Can you please advise if it's possible to automated data export for let's say 1min quotes btc/usd into a text file, or it always has to happen in the manual mode (disconnecting and then exporting)? Thank you.

Hello
Im using a "Write Bar Data to File" to use is by other software, but there is one problem.

SierraCharts stops to update file, because it's used by other software, but the second software does not make any changes, just to read.

Is there any way to make some changes in SierraChart to fix it?

Accessing files that are open in another program is a complicated matter requiring information from both programs. Therefore, there is not anything we can do in this case.

But, the top-level source code for the Write Bar Data to File is available in the Studies6.cpp file in the ACS_Source folder under your main Sierra Chart installation. You can see if you can change what you need within it. Refer to the following:

We have looked into this and this is what we have determined:

The output file containing the bar and study data is only open, when a write operation is being performed. Otherwise, Sierra Chart does not keep that file open. It is only momentarily open.

When Sierra Chart writes to the file and the file is open during that time, it allows read access from any other process at that time.

If Sierra Chart is unable to open the output file, it means that another process has exclusive write access to it and is not allowing write access.
