    OrderState.Working

    Ref: "Critical: In a historical backtest, orders will always reach a "Working" state. In real-time, some stop orders may only reach "Accepted" state if they are simulated/held on a brokers server"

    on this: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...injascript.htm

    If I want to only ChangeOrder when OrderState.Working what's the best way to code this?​

    Hello dibDab,

    Thanks for your post.

    OnOrderUpdate() could be used to track order objects and get the OrderState of an order. You could consider tracking your order objects in OnOrderUpdate() and calling the CancelOrder() method when the OrderState of the order is equal to OrderState.Working.

    See the help guide documentation below for more information and sample code.

    OnOrderUpdate(): https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...rderupdate.htm

    Let me know if I may assist further.

      is this ok?

      if (myOrder != null && (myOrder.OrderState == OrderState.Working || myOrder.OrderState == OrderState.Accepted)

        Hello dibDab,

        Thanks for your note.

        Yes, this could be the correct use of checking for the OrderState of an order object. The code you shared would check if myOrder is not null and if the OrderState of myOrder is OrderState.Working or OrderState.Accepted.

        Let me know if I may further assist.
