Re: FT3.0 not give feedback of the OnPause event?

Hello,

Our developers said that OnPause procedure is present in the Forex Tester 3.

They also said that you need to create this file not in the Forex Tester folder but in <FT3 folder>\Projects\<name of project>\Strategies\ folder

Everything should work properly in this case.
