How do i access Symbol Info fields such as Name1 and Point Value in the the Screener tool, Strategy script and in the MM tool?
e.g. these 2 functions don't work -
type = Symbol.Name1;
a = Symbol.PointValue;

Pl advise sample code for these function calls ..

MM tool uses C# as programming language while the screener and the simulator uses the QuantShare scripting language.

In QS language:
a = name1();

// Point value cannot be accessed directly. You need to create a custom C# function in Tools -> Create Functions
double a = cFunctions.SymbolInfo.PointValue;

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
