TWS Build 750.4 DDE bug or feature?

    I just downloaded TWS build 750.4.

    After this download, my VB6 DDE program's behavior has changed.

    When I click on order, _TWO_ lines come up:

    1) A line with the quote for the equity
    2) The order line

    In all previous versions of TWS (that suppport DDE of course) the behavior was that _ONLY_ the order line came up.

    The quote line comes up whether I _ALREADY_ have a DDE initiated quote line for the equity or not.

    Is this on purpose, i.e., a feture, or is this a bug? I personally do not like it if it is a "feature."

    In my implementation (same build as you), there is a slight change in behavior, but not quite what you describe.

    If there is no existing quote line up, then it brings up two line...a quote line (ticker in IB parlance) and an order line. If there is an existing quote line for the defined equity, then it bahaves as previous and only adds an order line to the existing quote line.

    Good luck.
