    extract data from a custom indicator

    I have a strategy that i want to extract data from a custom indicator. I have been reading different posts and been trying to extract the information with no success. I tried the print command on the indicator to see if any information exists, and it does show, but when I try to get the same information it only gives me zero values.

    Heere is some of the code below:

    private double Strength =0.0, SweepA = 0.0, SweepB = 0.0;

    public int Switch = 0, Switch2 = 0,SwitchA = 0, SwitchB = 0, SwitchC = 0, SwitchD = 0, SwitchE = 0, SwitchAA = 0, SwitchBB = 0;

    the above information I even made the int Switch a public value and a function

    public int getDaActiveSwitch
    {
    get { return Switch; }

    }


    In the strategy i even tried this

    int asdf= CustomIndicator(Name(21, 12, 3, 4, 1, false,1).getDaActiveSwitch;
    Print("Active switch " + asdf);




    The Switch value does change numbers on OnBarUpdate from 1 to 5 in the indicator but I can not get a result in the strategy.

    I can only retrieve the Parameter values only.

    what do I do.

    The indicator is NOT a dll.

    Can you view the source code or is it protected?

    If protected - Can you request to the developer to make it accessible?

      Hello ballboy,

      Thank you for your post.

      You can expose values that are not plots by using Data Series or Update(). We have a reference sample at the following link that provides an example of both: http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ead.php?t=4991

      For information on Data Series please visit the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...ries_class.htm

      For information on Update() please visit the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...nt7/update.htm

      Please let me know if you have any questions.
