MT4: Event values not populated

Post by aether » Sun Jan 20, 2019 7:39 pm

Hi,

I have the following small sample of code that connects to TWSLink and requests some historical data:

Code: Select all

#property copyright "trade-commander.org"
#property link      "http://www.trade-commander.org/"

#include <twslink2.mqh>
#include <WinUser32.mqh>

void TWSLinkPrintEvent(int eventuid) {
  Print(GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,1), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,2), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,3), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,4), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,5), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,6), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,7), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,8), ", ",
        A2U(GET_EVENT_VAL(eventuid,9)), ", ",
        A2U(GET_EVENT_VAL(eventuid,10)), ", ",
        A2U(GET_EVENT_VAL(eventuid,11)), ", ",
        A2U(GET_EVENT_VAL(eventuid,12)), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,13), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_D(eventuid,14), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,15), ", ",
        GET_EVENT_VAL_I(eventuid,16));
}

int      uidMSFT         	= 0;     // unique id for MSFT contract
int      uidOrderMSFT     = 0;     // unique id for MSFT order

int init()
{
  Print("Connecting...");
  int connect_status = CONNECT(U2A(""), 7497, 1, 1000);
  Print("Connection status: ", connect_status);
  
  if (connect_status > 0) {
    uidMSFT = REGISTER_CONTRACT(U2A("MSFT"), U2A("STK"), U2A("USD"), U2A("SMART"), U2A(""), U2A(""), U2A(""), 0.0, U2A(""), 0, 0.0); // register MSFT  	
    int res = REQ_HIST_DATA(uidMSFT, U2A("20190101 00:00:00"), U2A("20181230 00:00:00"), 19 /*1 day*/, U2A("TRADES"), 1, 1, 1);
    Print("Req Hist Data return code = ", res);
    
    do {
      int eventuid = WAIT_FOR_EVENT(1000);
      if (eventuid > 0) {
        Print("Received event: ", eventuid);
        TWSLinkPrintEvent(eventuid);
      }
    } while (eventuid > 0);
  }
  return(1);
}

void deinit()
{ 
}
 
int start()
{
  return (1);
}
Running the code produces the output below. The problem is that the values from the events are all error codes signalling "event not found" (I have omitted most event outputs since they are all the same):

(...similar repeated events omitted...)
This problems seems to be similar or the same as the one described here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=42

Are the database errors in the log the cause of this?

I will be most thankful for any help with this issue.

I will check asap.
What TWS version please ?

(Please always use latest stable, which currently is 972)

No, you should not update. Never use latest version, always stable please.

The current stable is 972.1p

https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=16045

On this site lower right (Offline TWS)

https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/i ... s-software

I test only on stable version.

I made your request and my events were all populated and also the database created in

Code: Select all

c:\trade-commander\twslink2\hdata\MSFT_STK_SMART__0_TRADES_1 day.sqlite
is populated with values of request.

In your log is a problem which points to an error on creating database to buffer historical data.

Code: Select all

2252;error;tcsqliteDB;execute;error db=c:\trade-commander\twslink2\hdata\MSFT_STK_SMART__0_TRADES_1 day.sqlite , code=1: duplicate column name: generic (ALTER TABLE history ADD COLUMN generic BOOLEAN)
I am not sure, but possible this error breaks the request at all. This error points to a version mismatch twslink/database.
What you could do:
1. Make sure to use correct TWS
2. Make sure to use correct (latest) TWSLink (version 2.3.07 https://trade-commander.com/download/2148/)
(may be do a clean install)
3. Rename folder

Code: Select all

c:\trade-commander\twslink2\hdata
to

Code: Select all

c:\trade-commander\twslink2\hdata.old
This forces on next request a database recreation.
This request should also provide correct values in event callback.

I have now done everything you suggested (install TWS offline version 972.1p, reinstall twslink, rename hdata folder).

The issue still persists. However, by experimenting I have discovered that I get data if I add 1 to the uid of latest event:

Code: Select all

do {
  int eventuid = WAIT_FOR_EVENT(1000);
  if (eventuid > 0) {
    Print("Event data: ", A2U(GET_EVENT_VAL(eventuid + 1, 0)));
  }
} while (eventuid > 0);
Does this make any sense? Or is there an "off by one" error in the twslink code, when events are handled without a callback?
