Anyway to display a position stat of ones own creation in a column for display in a trade window. I create an entry score for each buy, I would like to see it in my trades tabel page.

There's nothing to stop you from creating your own Performance Visualizer (PV), but if you want to use the existing Trades PV, then you can only populate the columns that it provides.

The answer is tp use the Position Entry and/or Exit Signal Names! (same as it ever was)

Perhaps it's a good idea for a new PV, as Robert says. Besides Signal Names, we can have scores and ranks in the position.Tag/Priority properties. Something to think about when time permits.

the tp entry/exit isn't going to cut it for me.

How do I create my own PV? Is there an object to start from?

rlt,

Presently no, but in the very near future we're going to have some new visualizers with open source code. Hope that helps. By the way if signal names won't do it, then you're probably using .Priority?

First of all, how can not be able to do something help? Of course it doesn't help, except in respect to not wasting my time trying? ;)

Signal names are working, I just need more than two. I can append them together in a string, but I like to be able to sort the columns.

I can work around between the current Trades PV and excel.

By saying that, I mean looking at source code when it's available could help you build your own PV.

rlt,

Here it goes:
Trades view with Priority and multi-column sorting
C# source code (VS 2005/2008):
Community.Visualizers
