Using Subroutines in PAC Control

Using Subroutines in PAC Control

Subroutines are an ideal way to re-use chart logic within the same strategy, or between strategies.

About this course

Subroutines can save you time and effort whenever you have a group of commands that are repeated in a strategy, or used in more than one strategy. A subroutine is a custom command that represents a series of commands (logic).

Topics include: 

  • Overview

(The differences between subroutines and charts, Passed-in and local parameters)

  • Creating a subroutine

(Creating a subroutine, configuring passed parameters, adding commands and local variable, including and using a subroutine in a strategy)

  • Debugging a subroutine
  • Tips and resources
  • Quizzes (to test your knowledge)

Course Duration: ~30 min
