Scan Windows




Scan Output Windows are very similar to Trade List Windows and their use is demonstrated in Tutorial 3.

A new scan window is created whenever a script is run in  mode, as in the sample_scan.rts example script:

Data can be sorted by any column by clicking on its header. Clicking again reverses the sort order.

Shift-click on another column to use it as a secondary sort when values in the first sort column are the same. Shift-clicking again reverses the secondary sort direction.

The initial sort order(s) and direction(s) can also be specified in the Scan Section using Format Codes. The special comment syntax {!1}, {!-2}, etc. tells RealTest what the preliminary sort sequence should be.

Double-clicking on any row opens a chart of that stock with the rightmost bar set to the date shown in that row.

Scan output can be copied to the clipboard and pasted as tab-delimited text. In Excel this automatically preserves the column structure.

Scan output can be saved to a CSV file by selecting "Copy List To Clipboard" from the Scan Menu:
