    I am building an application that will request historical data from IB. I am trying to put the historical data into a text box. I keep getting this in the text box after I make the request.

    As you can see, no historical data is returned. After I make the request, I use the code below to put the data into the textbox.

    txtHistData.Text = + " " + e.close.ToString();
    I am using C#. Can someone tell me what's wrong? I am probably not handling the data correctly.
