public static bool GetMode(WealthScript obj)
public static RunMode GetMode2(WealthScript obj)

public enum RunMode { SSB, MSB, SM, Error }

Parameter Description

objAn instance of the WealthScript object


Returns the mode the Strategy is being executed. There are two methods, a simpler and legacy GetMode which returns false for single-symbol backtest and true for multi-symbol backtests, and GetMode2 which returns a RunMode which can take four values: SSB, MSB, SM, Error - single symbol backtest, multi-symbol backtest, running in Strategy Monitor and state of error.


Here's a short snippet illustrating how to call the method in your Strategy code:

Example using C# extension methods:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Drawing;
using WealthLab;
using WealthLab.Indicators;
/*** Requires installation of Community.Components Extension from www.wealth-lab.com > Extensions ***/

namespace WealthLab.Strategies { public class MyStrategy : WealthScript { protected override void Execute() { var mode = this.GetMode(); var mode2 = this.GetMode2(); var text = ""; PrintDebug( "GetMode: " + ( mode ? "Multi-symbol backtest" : "Single-symbol backtest") ); switch (mode2) { case RunMode.SSB: text = "Single-symbol backtest"; break; case RunMode.MSB: text = "Multi-symbol backtest"; break; case RunMode.SM: text = "Strategy Monitor"; break; case RunMode.Error: text = "Error"; break; default: break; } PrintDebug( "GetMode2: " + text ); } } }
