Is documentation on this namespace available anywhere?

Specifically, the WealthLab.Rules.Candlesticks.CandlePattern class.

I don't see anything in any of these:

Weath-Lab User Guide
WealthScript QuickRef
WealthScript Programming Guide

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Documentation for the classes used in Rules is forthcoming. In the meantime, is there something that you need help with that you can't deduce just from using some of the rules?

I have recently been programming the 12 major Japanese Candlestick patterns manually and noticed that the new version of WealthLab 5 has added many of these as indicators (conditions) in the "Construct a Strategy by Rules". I would like to know what the logic or rule for each of the patterns is based on (e.g., (C>O) AND (H-L)>(C-O)). I have used the pattern definitions from the Candlestickforum.com website and have noticed that they do not produce identical results when compared with the chart annotations from Active Trader Pro. Would the new WealthLab patterns be based on the Active Trader definitions or the CandlestickForum definitions or some other definition? Great to see them in there, but it is important to know what the rules are that trigger them. THanks Ken

This was discussed here.

For now, the answer is to look at the code in the Version 4 Candlestick rules by dragging and dropping the condition that you're interested in.

Thanks for the reply. I noticed that post also and would like to use that process, but could not find a link to download the trial version of WL4. I have only used WL5 and am running VIsta. thanks again for your help..Ken
