Post by unconnu » Thu Sep 27, 2018 3:58 am

Without SET_ORDER_VAL this is not possible.
Just call PLACE_ORDER with transmit flag=-1 (so it goes not to IB).
Then use SET_ORDER_VAL to set the ref with transmit flag=1.

There is no information about twslink.xml. Normally no need to change it and also some parts may not have an impact at all.

It is the standard ref. It also stores the uid of an order which is useful to recover order.
Also you know it was placed by TWSLink.

Yes,
custom ref appened to standard ref. The ref is used to store uid. The uid is used to restore an order on restart / reconnect. TWSLink wont rely on permid here.
