Bruce, do you know a way to address the watchlist in realcode?

 

I want to export my watchlist to an external database.

I know how to export data in realcode to an external database, using a .Net namespace.

However I'd like to export the watchlist once a day.

If I can't address the watchlist, then I'd have to come up with a workaround, a "bogus" code that runs, let's say at 4pm, and that will be passing all tickers in the watchlist.

Export a plot that just prints close on lastbar should give you something to work with

 

if lastbar then
    plot close
endif

Yea I know I can do something like that.

but Ideally I'd like something that would sense a change in the watchlist (ticker added/deleted), and only on that event export the list.

with a "if lastbar"  condition I can loop al the tickers into an array, make the connection to the external database with System.data.oledb namespace , check if they're the same and if not, update the external database.

However this will be a condition that'll run all day long on my chart, and is unnecessary use of resources.

The only way I know of to 'touch" all of the symbols in a WatchList is to sort that WatchList or create a Custom Market Indicator. The suggestion by jas0501 to create a RealCode Indicator and just export it once a day seems like the best option.
