With Denali/TT order entry, are trailing stops done on the server/exchange, or are they managed by the SC client?

I see this from https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartOrderRoutingServiceWithData.php#Introduction

"You still have the ability to use client-side managed OCO and Bracket orders. Trailing Stop orders are still always managed locally on the Sierra Chart client side."

So for a DTC protocol placed bracket-order, to trail the stop, I would have my code do a Cancel-Replace order on the parent order of the bracket. Is that right? Do I have to mention the child order IDs (stop loss and take profit orders) too, or does replacing the parent suffice?

Kind of wondering if that works... once the parent is filled, can it be modified... or do I just modify the stop-loss only.

or is there a way to use the SC client built-in trailing stop functionality from the DTC protocol?

The basic method is that you submit a bracket order using the DTC protocol. The stop order which is part of the OCO order group, you modify it after the parent order fills as you require.
