                                                   Composite Tool Script Editor - Write to TXT

Trying to write some variables from a composite to a text file. Figured I could just add code in my Composite tool script editor to write a txt file.

This doesn't seem to work. Output file is not being written. Any limitations to the composite script editor?

Any help is appreciated!

double[] close = Functions.GetVariable("close");
double[] open = Functions.GetVariable("open");
double[] high = Functions.GetVariable("high");
double[] low = Functions.GetVariable("low");
double[] volume = Functions.GetVariable("volume");
double[] count = Functions.GetVariable("count");

double[] date0 = Functions.GetVariable("date0"); // date0 = Date(); in QS Composite tool code
double[] symbol = Functions.GetVariable("symbol"); //symbol = name(); in QS Composite tool code
double[] totcap = Functions.GetVariable("totcap");
double[] cap = Functions.GetVariable("cap");
double[] weight = Functions.GetVariable("weight");
double[] mcap = Functions.GetVariable("mcap");
double[] comborank = Functions.GetVariable("comborank");

string s1 = "HelloWorld:";

for (int i=1; i<close.Length;i++)

close[0] =1000;
close[i] =close[i]*close[i-1];
open[0] = 1000;
open[i] = close[i]*open[i]/100+close[i];
high[0] = 1000;
high[i] = close[i]*high[i]/100+close[i];
low[0] = 1000;
low[i] = close[i]*low[i]/100+close[i];
volume[i] =volume[i];
count[i] =count[i];

string s2 = "Hello World:";

date0[0] = 0;
date0[i] = date0[i];
symbol[0] = 0;
symbol[i] = symbol[i];
totcap[0] = 0;
totcap[i] = totcap[i];
cap[0] = 0;
cap[i] = cap[i];
weight[0] = 0;
weight[i] = weight[i];
mcap[0] = 0;
mcap[i] = mcap[i];
comborank[0] = 0;
comborank[i] = comborank[i];

s2 = close[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + date0[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + symbol[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + totcap[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + cap[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + weight[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + mcap[i] +(char)Keys.Tab + comborank[i] + Environment.NewLine;
s1 +=s2;
System.IO.File.AppendAllText("C:\\QuantShare Exports\\output.txt", s1);

You should add the "AppendAllText" function outside of the "for" loop, otherwise, the "s" variable will be written on each iteration.
However, even with that, you should get data in the "output.txt" file. Try to use "Global.Trace" to see if loop is being executed correctly. Trace data will be displayed in "View -> Output".

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.
