Split handling in live trading

Hello, possibly simple question, but it's an important one to avoid making a mistake on:

In live trading, assuming DataNormalizationMode.SplitAdjusted, does Security.Price (and price data in OnData) magically multiply the real security price by a split adjustment factor to keep it constant as if the split had not happened, or must I perform this bookkeeping myself? I.e. is behavior different than in backtests here?

Update Backtest








Unfortunatelly, at the moment, there is not price adjustment in live mode.

Alright, no problem, I'll figure out how to handle it.

You think there should be some web sites that track upcoming splits. That would be helpful because you can feed the system with date (or possible time) of split and plan in advance.
