help with bartype for strategy in EL

I want to play with a strategy using the 3 line break bartype, which I apply indicators to, how do you specify the bartype in a strategy for testing can I just do a bartype=10 or does someone have an example?

Thanks,
James

If I am understanding you correctly, then just add the strategy to your Line Break chart and it will use that. You do not need to define the bar type in the strategy code.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

On chart:

1. Insert Study
2. Change to Signals
3. Add the Signal(s)
4. Format Signals
5. Properties -> Set your commission and slippage, etc
6. Format -> Set intrabar order generation, etc

Now, from here when you hit Close you can view the performance report by going to "View -> Strategy Performance report" on the main MultiCharts window. Or you can optimize the strategy by clicking Optimize in the Format Signals window.

Both will use the current chart source, instrument, bar type, lookback etc.
