Customising Indicator Email alerts

Postby 7510109079 » Tue Jul 02, 2019 4:47 am

Question to anyone out there:

How do we add the Instrument and timeframe to the email header of the alert that gets sent out

e.g. change this first one to the second one:
2019-07-02 08 47 08.jpg


Can anybody summarise the standard edits to a typical lua file that Apprentice has coded?

thx

You will have something like this.
local Subject="Two Average Cross Alert" .. "(" .. source:instrument() ..", ".. source:barSize() ..")" ;
local Email_Text="Some Text";
terminal:alertEmail(Email, Subject, Email_Text);
