Can anyone point me in the direction of code snippets for changing indicator and/or strategy values by writing/reading them to/from a file?

Here is an example screenshot from a vendor similar to what I have in mind.



Thanks.

Thanks.

Do you mean the actual file writing and reading code? Google "using StreamReader" and "using StreamWriter", MS has good examples of both.

Creating a separate form for user interaction would involve more than a 'snippet.' If you wanted to use a chart subpanel, you could probably adapt the code in dorschden's Price Action Swing indicator.
