... in existing code, when i chk for the definition of isLong, i didnt find where the value true or false is actually being generated.

also, EnterLongName, is it only my display name for the trade on the chart or has deeper meaning ?

    EnterLongName is the order name. You can use order names to check what order has been filled. 

    isLong is a method parameter, when you call a method OpenPosition a true or false is passed into it. Look for a spot in the code where OpenPosition method is called, you will find that the method is called like this OpenPosition(true) or OpenPosition(false). That is where the isLong is passed.
