    Instrument or Period change within Code

    Hello,
    is there a way to enter e.g. "15M" within Code. I thinking of writing an Indicator in order to change the period programmatically?

    bestof61,

    You can use a multi-timeframe strategy if that is what you are referring to :

    A sample comes with NinjaTrader in Tools > Edit NinjaScript > Strategy > SampleMultiTimeframe

    It's a strategy but the idea is very similar for indicators.

      Thanks AdamP for the fast reply.
      But it is not what I like to do.
      First i like to use the Value: this.BarsPeriod.Value = myPeriod within my Code. But it is as you guys told me not supported. By my fault i used it and at the end of the day i had to reinstall NT.
      However I wonder if i could redirect the output of a program to the screen as i am able to enter the period or instrument on a chart.
      So what i like to do in my Code(Indicator or strategy does not matter):
      1. Choose a chart as i do with left click of my mouse on the screen
      2. Enter a period as i do it with the keyboard my enter e.g. "M15" or "NQ 09-12"
      regards,

        bestof61,

        That is technically possible however not supported. Hopefully someone would be able to help you out there.

        You can use BarsPeriod.Id in Initialize(), it's done in the following indicator for example :
