Trading Blox Basic Editor's Blox Menu Options

 

There are two different dialogs that allow access to the all three of the blox information fields.

Blox Fields:

Description:

Name:

This field is the blox file name.  The name of a block is entered in the Type field section of a block.  It is also displayed in the System Editor's list Name Column.  Blocks listed in the name column represent all the blocks available for a system assignment.

 

When a block is added to a system, the system where they are added will execute the script section in the assigned blox.  During execution of blox where the script sections have same name script section names in other blocks, the script sections in will sorted into ascending alphabetical Blox name order.  The sorted order of system's blox name determines the order in which the scripts of the same name in a system are executed.  To change the order of their execution, change the name of the blox.

 

Blox names are unique and restricted to one block with a specific name.  To copy a block in a different group where the original will be left in its current group, the name of the block must be changed in some way.  Any change to the name is acceptable.  For example, if the block is named "ADX Entry Exit", and a copy of the block is wanted into ADX System Group, the copied block can be "ADX Entry Exit2" or "ADX-Entry-Exit."

Group:

The Blox Group field is assigned when the blox is created.  The group name highlighted at the time the user creates a new blox, Trading Blox Builder will be the same name as the current blox that is selected.  If the opened area of a group name is selected, the new blox will be save to that group list display, unless the user changes the Group name.

 

Block Group names can be changed using the Trading Blox Builder Blox Basic Editor's Blox Menu Rename option.  It can also be changed using the Copy option to duplicate and change the name of a blox.  When the Group name is changed, or when the mouse drags the block from its current group to a different group, Trading Blox Builder Blox Basic Editor will automatically change the the new Group name to the destination group name.

 

Group names can be any group name that exist, or user wants to have in their list of Groups.   Keeping blox designed for a specific system in the the same group can make finding the blocks used in a system easier to locate.  

 

Information about the standard Blox Types is available in the Trading Blox Architecture table.

Blox Group Types

Blox Renaming Dialog


Section:

Newly created blox will appear with the Section field empty.  Earlier versions of Trading Blox Builder, placed the group name into the section field.  The section field is now the information listed above the blox parameter area.  When more than one blox from a group is added to a system, and it has the same information in a section field, only one instance of the section field is displayed.  By replacing, or adding information into the section field that helps the user understand which blox the following parameters are representing, the process of adjusting parameters values is easier to understand.

 

Users might find have more information

Previously, the Group name information was automatically entered, but now it is left up to the user who creates the block to decide what information they want to see displayed with the system parameters.

 

The section word or phrase can distinguish which of the Entry and Exit blocks the parameters below the section name are describing.  displayed in the Section field determines the words displayed when the system's parameters are displayed.  Each block in a system can show the Group name, or it can be more informative and display what the block's create decided was better to inform the user of the block.

 

by the blox when it is in a system, and that system's parameter settings are displayed on the main parameter edit area.

 

The section name is also very flexible and just provides a way to identify the user interface area (section) that the parameters will be in when a system in a suite is selected to show its parameters.

 

You can group parameters from multiple blox into the same section or have each block have it’s own section. How this field is used is mostly up to how the user wants to mange and display the blocks.
