    When you download Setup.exe file and the file is blocked by your operating system, so you cannot install bfexplorer app. Please read this article describing how to unblock such file:

    You open a market for monitoring so it is open market, right? All the rest of millions market on betfair are not opened by you, so are not monitored by your bfexplorer app. This is just linguistic term, I had to name some way the view with open(ed) markets.

    Any grid view has columns, so you can filter, sort, group data by those columns. Filter your markets by Status, or group them. Now select all closed markets, and click on Close toolbar button, and so all your closed markets will be removed from Open(ed) Markets.

    When all matches are over, its status changes to "closed", but on BFExplorer "Open Markets" I still get the message "Monitoring 61 markets". What does this mean ? Can't all the closed markets be erased automatically from this "Open Markets" list ? Thank you

    When football match is over, it means that betfair sets the market status to closed. Bfexplorer does not monitor closed markets.

    If you run your strategy automatically by Bot Executor tool, whenever your bot finishes its execution, the Bot Executor removes the market from monitoring, so no data are loaded by bfexplorer for such market.

    Any action bot, bfexplorer offers, has parameter named:  StopMarketMonitoring. This parameter when set to True (checked in bot parameter’s settings) will set the market status to "inactive", when there is no other running bot on the market, so this way the open market is removed from monitoring. This parameter is useful when you run you bots manually on open markets in bfexplorer so not in automatic mode using Bot Executor tools.

    You can use either dark or white app theme:

    And when you go through my post you can really see different app layouts.

    On Bfexplorer Product web page:

    http://bfexplorer.net/Products/Bfexplorer

    There is icon (like windows) in the main header, and when you move your mouse to this icon the tooltip window appears saying: “Bfexplorer Product Features”, click on to open web page:

    http://bfexplorer.net/Products/ProductFeatures

    Here in User Interface tab click on: Application layout and workspaces

    http://bfexplorer.net/Products/Feature/12

    There you can watch video showing how to change app layout.

    The base points are: App uses two different user interfaces to present active market: the grid one and ladder one, you can switch between them by clicking on Use Bet Event Trader toolbar button in the main app bar.

    So ladders UI is named in my app context like: “Bet Event Trader”, and grid user control (grid view), is named “Bet Event”.

    When switching to one or the other mode you can change layout of other views as well, just by resizing or views and/or hiding not used ones.

    If you repeatedly use different application layouts, then you can add them to your workspaces, clicking on View/Workspaces/Add.

    Then you can simply switch between them using View/Workspaces/My Workspaces/<Your workspace name here>.

    When you made changes to already named workspace just click on Save menu item in View/Workspaces/Save.

    Bfexplorer remember lastly used workspace and reloads it again when you open bfexplorer again after Exit.

    In Application/Settings/Trading Ladder you can set number of trading selections shown in “ladders”, by default it is set to 3, UI of my app is optimized to resolution of 1920x1200. If you have bigger screen with better resolution or more monitors then you can float views to another monitor, on so on.

    The concept of moving/resizing/docking windows in base on Window operation system, so it is not just something I implemented in my application: bfexplorer.

    Have a look at for instance on Tabs in Chrome/Edge/Internet Explorer, actually in any web browser. You can drag&drop a tab and move it to another monitor, or docked it to another Chrome app, and so.

    The same concept works in bfexplorer app, it is called dockable views/windows.

    First you need to define what you mean by term “scalping”?

    Basically, the word describers manually trading on betfair, so the activity when man using its knowledge on how prices/odds will move, or how the market (so rest of people and bots on betfair) will react on market price changes, and using this knowledge to place back or lay bets, either by offering bets, and or taking what is offered.

    The aim of this strategy is to create very short position on betfair market taking just couple ticks profit when market moves in favor or just accept loses, again in couple ticks. Trade is made by placing opposite bet type then opening one, so lay when back first and wise versa.

    A tick is price/odds difference between back/lay odds, as betfair odds on non  handicap markets is defined in price groups, so for instance in odds/price range 2-3, it is 0.02, but in odds 3-4 it is 0.05 and so on, then between 2.12-2.14 we have got 1 tick difference as well as between 10-10.5.

    That is the basic of trading on betfair.

    When man trades on betfair a different techniques are used, you even place fake bets to force market react in your favor, in such cases you need to know what you are doing, as what you offer in such fake/trap bets, can be value for others.

    To automate this process we are using betfair bots, so small programs which could automate manual part of your daily routine on befair markets, it is clear that such bots do not think, and are limited only by preprogrammed parameters.

    In bfexplorer app you can find following bots which can be used for scalping:

    Place Bet

    Be the First in Queue

    Fill or Kill

    Close Selection Bet Position

    Close Selection Bet Position at Odds

    Place Bet and Close Selection Bet Position

    Tick Offset

    Scratch Trading

    Trailing Stop Loss

    Close Market Bet Position

    I have just added new bot to bfexplorer called: “Show Market Selection and Alert”. If you want to use it install the latest version of bfexplorer:

    http://bfexplorer.net/Products/Bfexplorer

    I have created new bot script TennisGameScoreAlertBot.fsx, you can add GameScore parameter adding values like this: GameScores:5 - 4|6 - 5

    Scores are separated by | and are written from position of serving player, have a look at the bot script on lines 49 – 63.

    I do simple bot script development for my subscribers for free (that requires up to 1 working hour). I checked the script execution on my server, and no error message was reported, therefore I think you just tried to change the bot code and your changes produced error message you reported.

    Bfexplorer offers standard bots that require no programming skills. You just set the bot parameters and execute such bot. One of such bots is “Tennis Bot” so basically you can set your trigger parameters, and setup an action by BotName parameter that will be executed when trigger criteria are met.

    “Tennis Bot” stops its execution automatically when the action bot is triggered, so repeating bot action again can be made by recursion, what can be done by "Sequence Execution" bot, referring last bot name to execute in sequence to be the name of your sequence bot.

    The last think for your custom bot is “Notification Bot”, so bot that will alert you (speak some text), so similar like in TennisBreakPointAlertBot script.

    I will add such bot to standard bfexplorer bots adding one useful feature which you could see in the “Watch Favourite” bot. This bot displays market selection in Bet Event view automatically, so when monitoring for instance 50 tennis markets, the bot will automatically show in Bet Event view the market and selection on which the bot was executed.

    I will add updated script as well, but my idea was that users willing to share programming bot scripts will do so, therefor I posted tutorial bot scripts for learners of betfair bot programming on my github web page:

     I really liked how TennisBreakPoint AlertBot.fsx works
    so I really want to do something like this,
    but it seems too hard.

    To create a bot, a prerequisite is knowledge of a programming language? Or is everything simpler?
    Where to start? I want to make an alert to the tennis bot to notify when the score is 5-4 * 6-5 *
    Or can I buy a bot creation from you?

    You have got MSCORLIB.DLL assembly on your computer, because when you installed bfexplorer, the .net libraries already must be installed on your computer.

    Bfexplorer app is developed in C# and F# programming languages, the script you want to run is written in F# as well.

    All you need to do is installed F# language extension to Visual Studio, or any other IDE you use, please read/watch following:

    mscorlib.dll is part of .net installation package, and is installed on every Windows OS, .net is here from 2002, so my question is what you do and on what OS?
