Client Portal: General Settings
Functionality
Posted by Alexey Iliin on 18 November 2011 05:09 PM

This menu allows you to change default settings for main platform functionality: Chart, FX Cell, Panels and Scripts.

Chart

The Chart submenu allows you to set gradient colors for candles and synchronize your cursor movement (if you use several Charts). This submenu also specifies the default settings for inactive instrument opacity, interval, period, and quote size limit.

Chart

FX Cell

To change the view of the FX Cell, go to the FX Cell tab.

FX Cell

The FX Cell is used in Order Entry, in the Watchlist (Board mode) and in other panels. In this tab, you can change several parameters which determine how the FX Cell is viewed.

Preview allows you to see changes.

The Price Type has two possible modes: Bid/Ask (default) and VWAP. Volume Weighted Avarage Price mode is a special mode in which  Bid/Ask are defined by the average values of Bid/Ask based on L2 quotes.

Panels

Here you can use an External Browser Window (otherwise Desktop window will be used) to display news, set Knowledge Base login and password (to add comments, view extended documentation, etc.), show News Content within the News panel, and set the Watchlist and FX Board to automatically fill with all instruments.

Panels

Scripts

General properties for Scripts can be configured here.

Scripts

  • Autoinclude Variables to Watch - if checked, the Watch panel will contain all variables used in a Script any time it's opened.
  • Handle debug events - every time a break point is encountered in your code while debugging, a debug event appears. Remove this checkbox if you don't want to handle this event.
  • Compilation framework - select the .NET Framework version you want your scripts to target.

Note: If you change the .NET Framework version, you may receive error messages if your code contains references to a different version. To resolve these errors, you must manually modify the references.

  • Cipher method - choose cipher method for your scripts to protect them as your intellectual property. The following methods are used for protection of executable files (*.pcm):
    • ZIP is the fastest method; it makes your scripts very compact. This is a good choice for working with any open-source scripts.
    • MD5 works slowly but keeps your scripts larger. Can be used to protect most scripts.
    • RSA is slowest method which generates the largest scripts. But it uses a very strong algorithm (keysize=1024) that is able to adequately protect your major scripts.
