Description

Note: Wealth-Lab 6 has Email Alerts natively. Open Preferences - Email Alerts to set up your email account and start receiving Strategy alerts. "AlertByEmail" helps you send customized messages.

By the virtue of .NET, it's possible to send e-mail in WL6 from the Strategy code. This code illustrates how to do it using a secure (SSL) mail server (e.g. Google).

First, create an instance of the EmailAlertParams class in the Strategy code like shown below, passing the essential parameters like sender e-mail and SMTP server credentials and port. Then call SendEmail, passing destination e-mail address and the message subject and text.

Note: if using Gmail, you might need to Allow less secure apps to access your account.

Example

Example using C# extension methods:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Drawing;
using WealthLab;
using WealthLab.Indicators;

namespace WealthLab.Strategies { public class TestEmail : WealthScript { protected override void Execute() { string From = "your.email@gmail.com"; string SmtpServer = "smtp.gmail.com"; int Port = 587; string Pass = "yourpassword"; bool Secure = true; EmailAlertParams param = new EmailAlertParams( From, SmtpServer, Port, Pass, Secure ); param.SendEmail( "another.address@gmail.com", "Hello World!", "E-mail generated by Wealth-Lab 6" ); } } }

Legacy syntax example:

First, create an instance of the class in the Strategy code like shown below, passing the essential parameters like sender e-mail and SMTP server credentials and port. Then call SendEmail, passing destination e-mail address and the message subject and text.
