    Strings

    You'll find it ridiculous, but I'm not yet familiar with strings.
    I tried this simple script for changing background colors according to the alert kind:
    private string text = @"Red"; // Alert Background Color
    .............
    Alert("MyAlert, ....., Color."+Text+", Color.White);
    but this doesn't result into an
    Alert("MyAlert, ....., Color.Red, Color.White);
    as I hoped.
    What is wrong here ?
    And what does the @ before "Red" involve ?

    I am not sure why you would not just use a switch or nested ifs to select the correct color, but if you insist on using a method that requires the translation of text, you should be looking at the Color.FromName() method.

      Hello fliesen,

      Thank you for your post.

      I believe what you are looking for is user definable colors, you can find information on how to create these at the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...ead.php?t=4977

      Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
