Stop Loss/Target & SendMail()

Hi All,

I'm trying to get my strat to email me when my stop loss or target gets filled but am not having any luck. I was hoping someone could take a look at my code and tell me what I'm missing. I'm sure it's something small. Since I'm assuming the code is pretty much the same for both, here's what I have for stop loss:

Variables
private bool stopSent = false;
private ArrayList stopLossTokens = new ArrayList();

protected override void OnBarUpdate() <---using this for breakeven/trail
SetStopLoss("Name", CalculationMode.Ticks, 12, false);

protected override void OnOrderUpdate(IOrder order)
if(order.OrderState == OrderState.PendingSubmit)
{
if(order.name == "Name")
stopLossTokens.Add(order.Token);
}

if(stopLossTokens.Contains(order.Token))
{
if(order.OrderState == OrderState.Filled && stopSent == false)
{
SendMail("", username@yahoo.com, Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name + " Name Stop Filled " + order.AvgFillPrice + ": " + lastProfit, "");
stopSent = true;
stopLossTokens.Remove(order.Token);
}
}

Anyone? Bueller?

Thanks,
Dave

P.S. As an alternative, if anyone has a working snippet they'd be willing to share, I'd be extremely grateful.

Why not use the existing thread that you already created?

Mike

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.
6)

Hey Mike,

Sorry if I caused a problem. The other thread I started was probably a little overcomplicated in hindsight so I thought I'd break it down into smaller parts. Want me to delete this one (though I'm not sure how)?

Thanks,
Dave

I will close this thread.

It seems to me it is the same problem as before so should be on the same thread.

You should just post an update to the other thread with whatever new info and ask for more help.
