public static void WinLossBackground(this WealthScript obj, int mode)

public void WinLossBackground( int mode )

Parameter Description

modemode selects the color scheme: 0 standard (light red, light green), 1 strong (red, light red, yellow, light green green)


Originally developed for WL4 by Dr.Koch and coded for WL5 by thodder.

Paints background according to profit. Handles overlapping positions. With overlapping positions the worst trade determines the background color. Trades better than 0.5 percent are marked green. Trades worse than -0.5 percent are marked red. The trades between -0.5% and +0.5 % are marked yellow. In mode 1 trades better/worse than +5%/-5% are marked with a stronger green/red color.


Add a call to WinLossBackground(mode) after the main (trading) loop i.e. at the end of your Strategy.


Here is an example illustrating how to use the method in your Strategy code:

Example using C# extension methods:

Community.Components.Utility u = new Community.Components.Utility(this);

// Call the method u.WinLossBackground(1); } } }
