    Accessing Point and Figure data...

    How do you get the PnF boxsize, and reversal in NT8 NinjaScript? Before it was BarsPeriod.Value, and BarsPeriod.Value2. Those are returning the wrong value now.

    Hello,

    Can you please clarify what appears to be wrong with the values? Are they not updating at all? I am seeing the accurate Box size and Reversal size with the following Prints:

    Code:
                Print(BarsPeriod.Value);
                Print(BarsPeriod.Value2);

      In my script (which is a DrawingTool, not an Indicator):

      Code:
      private BarsPeriod bp;
      In OnStateChange() I have:
      Code:
      bp = new BarsPeriod();
      in my OnMouseDown() I have
      Code:
      Print("boxSize: "+bp.Value+" -- reversal: "+bp.Value2);
      my ouput is:
      Code:
      boxSize: 1 -- reversal: 1
      My setttings are attached

        I see now. What you are doing is instantiating a new BarsPeriod object, but you are not doing anything with the Box Size and Reversal values of that particular object. What you need is an instance of ChartControl related to the chart on which the object resides. An instance of ChartControl will have a BarsPeriod object attached to it which should carry the correct values, and you can just assign a reference to that existing BarsPeriod object to your bp object.

        For example, I was able to get this working in a modified version of the @Text drawing tool as follows:

        Code:
        		private void DrawText(ChartControl chartControl)
        		{
                             Print(chartControl.BarsPeriod.Value);
                             ....................
