Input Parameter for enum

Hi,

   a) Am trying to set up an input Parameter like this

        [Parameter]
        public Resolution TimeFrame = Resolution.Minute;

  This is giving an error during compilation. 

  Please provide the correct syntax for setting up Input Parameter for enums, or is there any workaround to get this to work.

   b) Is it possible for the default values set up in the strategy/indicator code to appear in the 'Algorithm Parameters' section of the dashboard, instead of reentering all the values again.

Regards

 

Vivek

One solution is to set up an integer paramenter:

[Parameter]
public int IntResolution = 2;

and make a cast:

# In Initialize
var resolution = (Resolution)IntResolution;
AddSecurity(SecurityType.Equity, Ticker, resolution);

Alternatively, you can subscribe to second resolution and create a consolidator with the desired timeframe:

[Parameter]
public int Minutes = 5;
# In Initialize
AddSecurity(SecurityType.Equity, Ticker, Resolution.Second);
var consolidator =
new TradeBarConsolidator(TimeSpan.FromMinutes(Minutes));
consolidator.DataConsolidated += OnDataConsolidated;
SubscriptionManager.AddConsolidator(Ticker, consolidator);

Please checkout the QuantConnect University example
