    Mixing Plot and override Plot

    Hi,

    I am sure that it is possible to mix Plot and plot override in the same indicator. Is there a reference to doing this? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Zeos,

    Are you looking to have an overridden plot method AND also have access to the original plot method?

    I am not aware of a supported way to do this currently, and likely wouldn't be possible due to OOP rules and the way NinjaTrader is designed.

    You could try using a partial method : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6b0scde8.aspx

    Or you could simply override the Plot method and include in it any functionality you want, duplicating the standard plot method to the best of your ability.

      Yes. I am looking to have both at the same time.

        Hi _AdamP. Thanks for your email. I actually figured it out.

        For those interested, add the following line at the end of your plot override code:
        // Call the base Plot() method to paint defined Plots
        base.Plot(graphics, bounds, min, max);

          Actually, I usually put that line at the beginning of the custom Plot, so that I call the base.Plot, and can then really override its functions later.

            Good point koganam. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks for pointing it out.
