Is there a way to see indicators while Strategy Tester Visualization is running?

If it is not implemented are there any plans to do so?

This is crucial for EA debugging.

Thank you Stringo, this was exactly what I needed!

 

codeidea -> template loads automatically after you tick Visualization checkbox in Strategy Tester

one issue though, if you have multiple timeframes in your EA (through indicators or whatever on multiple timeframes), it only shows the template on the first window, which is the selected timeframe in the strategy tester.


is there a way to have the same template appear across the other sub window? the window is there, and you can select it, but it doesn't have the template like the first/front window (timeframe)

Not solved yet.

In the next solution (not next build!) indicators with different symbol/period will be atomatically added to other charts

Hello. You can use ChartIndicatorAdd() in EA CODE to place indicators on chart. Best wishes, Candles

It's not needed to see the indicators in Visual Tester mode, they are drawn automatically. Unless there is a bug ?
