I think a blocking client is ok, but use some internal counter to make sure that the blocking time is limited.

That makes sense. I'll add a timeout feature.

Side note: I do need heartbeats on the main server. History is different - you log in, get ticks, log out.

Iíll start with blocking and see if it runs smoothly enough. Thanks.

Just an update - although DTC protocol supports options, Sierra Chart's DTC server does not sufficiently support options - nor do the developers plan on adding support for DTC options. You can manually punch in an options Asset and trade it, but you cannot get a list of options securities by an underlying (message response: "not supported").

Sierra Chart's developers will soon add the ability to get futures contracts by underlying, so at least we will be able to trade futures.

Ughh!

I hope it is possible to retrieve an option's price, send an order,etc for a correctly formed option's symbol string?

Yes. I suppose one thing you can do is develop your own options asset name string generator, and check if the asset exists by attempting to subscribe to it. Some trial and error may be required.

This project is on hold until Sierra Chart implements listing futures symbols by underlying.

(Per my request, it is on their to-do list.)

This project is back on. But it is still impossible to use GET_FUTURES or GET_OPTIONS.

I will provide a workaround that lets a user directly check for the definition of any given symbol.

Most importantly, it will support SET_HWND, so market messages will update Zorro upon arrival.
