How to get some message from an indicator if a strategy used

Postby dogxyz » Sun Oct 09, 2016 1:36 pm

Hi, I add some message by instance:createTextOutput() in my indicator to show at some time. I can see it by my eyes. If I run a strategy which use this indicator, how to get such message in this strategy at this time? I don't like to use data stream (instance:addStream). Is there any idea to do? Thanks.
