Sure,

add "-fexceptions" to the Additional Complier Parameters.

The .dll will be in Sierra Chart's \Data folder.

To use this custom study, go to Analysis >> Studies >> Add Custom Study >> highlight it and click Add.

tom Gilb thanks for the quick response.
I followed the directions you have registered, and the list of indicators does not appear OFA BARS.

I'm not sure your DLL was actually built.

If you look at the post and screenshot by @Neo1, you will see that you need to add "-fexceptions" to the Additional Complier Parameters box. (once you add it to the dialog box, it should stay there between compiler runs).

Once that is done and the Build Custom Studies DLL button is clicked, you should have the same output that his screenshot shows, in the Build Output message box.

Once you have this, @tomgilb instructions should get you going.

Hope that helps.

Possible for someone to compile this and post it?

The new integration of VS for compiling in SC appears to be very buggy, I have errors compiling that I cannot resolve. Is it possible that someone can post the compiled DLL from this study? Very interested to have a look at it. Many thanks
