    Request for Sticky Instructions

    Please,
    could someone from NinjaTrader post a sticky with explicit instructions on

    (1) how to import and use an Indicator from this forum

    It's described as follows in TTM Squeeze thread
    (In other words, it's here, but not sticky):

    To import:
    - Download the file contained in this thread to your desktop
    - From the Control Center window select the menu File > Utilities > Import NinjaScript
    - Select the downloaded file


    Also:

    (2) how to "manually import" an Indicator from this forum. [Described in TTM Squeeze Thread as 'Unzipping it manually into the indicators directory in My Document\NinjaTrader 6\bin\Custom and compiling it in the NinjaScript Editor'].

    I have looked for these in the help guide without success.

      LG has already mentioned that. It would be ok if there wasn't a bug in the import/export tool.

      I would place a bet that the import/export tool does a text parse of the indicator to search for system indicators used and if you've used too many on one line of code, for example, it gets confused.

        Indeed Gumphrie. I was just under the impression he wanted official documentation on how to import NinjaScript for future reference without needing to dig through the forum so I provided the location of where the documentation is located.

        I personally have not had any import/export problems with any indicators yet, but when I do experience it I will try and fiddle around with it to determine more about the nature of the bug.

          Actually I would still like to see the instructions (for regular AND manual import) as a sticky. That would put it right where people need to see it. Just trying to make things a little easier for the non-programmers among us.

          But -- I understand (sigh).

            The bug is that it gets confused if you specify indicators in the code as Base.Indicator rather than just Indicator.

              This seems as good as place as any to ask this question. I read in a post that when NT Imports the indicators in the zip file that it checks to see if that indicator already exists in the indicator folder. It then does a version check between the existing indicator and the indicator it is getting ready to import. Not sure what happens based upon differences in version numbers.

              My question. How does one go about setting the version number of an indicator?

              thanks

                NT does not check version number, it checks the file size and date and replaces a system indicator only based on a newer file.
