remembering a runners name or sel_index and matching it later
« on: Tue, 29 December, 2015, 09:45 »
This should be simple and it's driving me nuts. I have rtfm several times.

I have a trigger that pinpoints a runner  early in the market leadup. This is passed to Excel and processed. I send the runners name to Excel for my own records.  I can send the unique betfair id to Excel also.

So the trigger is in 2 parts.
Send data to Excel of identified runner
Excel calculates
Back the runner earlier identified,


So in my betting trigger conditions as a condition I want to say  (for example) "and selections sel_index is equal to cell_excelsheet_A1"

But the trigger doesn't have that option. It only has sel_ID which is not unique and when several markets are overlapping I'm getting 'ghost bets.'

I have tried 'remember mysels' then 'and selections name is equal to mysels_sel_name but it's not matching.

It works with sel_ID because that variable is available in trigger condtions

"And selections INDEX is equal to cell_excelsheet_A1"

It should be simple. It WILL be simple!
At ten minutes out identify a runner. In Play bet on that runner.

But I've gone around in circles because obviously I'm missing a basic concept. I can feel a DUH coming on.... :(

Hi
Larp is correct with sel_name
sel_index refers to the display order of selections in a Betfair market
the same with:
and selections index is ....

sel_id is unique to that specific selection in all markets that same selection appears in, i.e Win, Place, Egg & Spoon :-) etc.
