How do we get to display the "Full Name" field in a column for watchlist items .

Like Symbol = EWD
and Full Name =" iShares MSCI Sweden Index (ETF)"

AddColumn("Full Name", FullName());


does not seem to work. Returns a blank for every symbol

There is a problem in the FullName function. We will fix this.

There is another way to display the full name. Select Tools -> Create Functions, click on add and type a name (example: fname).
Add the following code then save:

result.Assign(cFunctions.SymbolInfo.FullName);

Now, in the watchlist type the following formula:
AddColumn("Full Name", fname());

That returns a Nan . It seems the fName function returns a number instead of String.

Sorry, I forgot to tell you to uncheck "Return Numeric Array" checkbox in the "Create Functions" form.

How do you add this to a Grid?

- Create a formula ("Formulas" button)
- Name it for example "FullName"
- Type this formula:
cell = fullname();
- Save (click on "Compile")

- In the cell, type:
=Formula.FullName("GOOG", 0)

Can we get the FullName() as a column in the trading system report?

You can only add numeric metrics in the "Trades" section of the trading system report.

Hi QS,

how can I access the FullName of a symbol in the AMM?
I just want to pass it to Divers.Output.

Thanks,
Torsten

Here is what you need to do:

Symbol symbol = Data.GetSymbolInfo("GOOG");
string fullname = symbol.FullName;

It would have been great if we can get fullname into "Symbols View" and "Symbols by Industry/Sector". When the symbol is numeric, we can't make out which stock it stands for unless we click the chart open. The earlier versions had the industry, sector, etc dropdown toolbar which was very useful while browsing stocks.
