I placed a Sell Order in a Citadel last night

I cancelled it today...about 11 hours later.

Approximately 8 hour after cancelling the order it is still present in the query results from MarketOrders.xml.

You didn't mention how you are querying that endpoint or which part of the results you are displaying in your environment.

Few things to note

1.orderState byte Valid states: 0 = open/active, 1 = closed, 2 = expired (or fulfilled), 3 = cancelled, 4 = pending, 5 = character deleted.

2.Depending on the program you are using it may automatically decide to cache the result even for longer periods than necessary, in those cases a force refresh is in order.

Zad,

Thanks for the reply. A piece of software eventually, involved. For now I'm trying to understand if/when a cancelled order drops from view when the data is pulled this way: https://api.eveonline.com/char/MarketOrders.xml.aspx?keyID=

I seldom cancel orders, so I'm not 100% sure, but I guess the order is availabel in the XML from @issueDate to @issueDate + @duration.

As Zad already pointed out, @orderState is there to filter which orders are of interest to you/the appliaction.
