I'm trying to turn on Brace Matching.
I assume the way it should work is to position the cursor next to a brace (or paren. or bracket) and it hilites the matched pair in some selected color. Is there something else I need to do? Do I misunderstand what it is supposed to do?

Fidelity must have upgraded the built-in Editor (in 6.7 or 6.8) if you see it because there's no sign of Brace Matching in Wealth-Lab Developer as of 6.6.

It's there in WLP 6.8 but if it's supposed to work as I described I'm afraid it doesn't

Oh this. I thought you're talking about some new option. ;)

Yes it doesn't work (not just it, some shortcuts, IntelliSense for custom DLLs etc. doesn't function too). Could even be a bug in the 3rd party Editor.NET control which is quite outdated. (There was some reluctance at Fidelity regarding upgrade of the control so we're left with what we have.) The workaround is to use a full-blown IDE:

How can I debug my trading strategies in Wealth-Lab?

Hallo,
why there is no "Editor"-possibility for the chart-script??

Strategy Editor is not available for strategies in compiled libraries (DLLs). You must have opened this strategy from the "ActiveTrader Strategy pack". This strategy, as well as many other, exists as a downloadable strategy ("Open strategy" dialog > Download...) Use that feature instead of this antiquated extension which stopped being updated and is mostly useless now.

P.S. Would you mind choosing a more appropriate topic or start your own next time? This topic dealt with a very specific question: Brace Matching. Should other users search for answer to a question like yours (missing "Editor"), my answer in a loosely related thread like this would hardly be beneficial to them as it might not come up. Thanks.
