    Help to save indicator user settings

    Hi, the indicator works as expected but the values set in parameters are not saved, when the script is reloaded or after NT is restarted the settings como back to Variables values.
    Please could you tell me how to fix that?

    My code:

    Code:
    #region Using declarations
    using System;
    using System.Diagnostics;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Drawing.Drawing2D;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Xml.Serialization;
    using NinjaTrader.Data;
    using NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart;
    #endregion
    
    // This namespace holds all indicators and is required. Do not change it.
    namespace NinjaTrader.Indicator
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Volume is simply the number of shares (or contracts) traded during a specified time frame (e.g. hour, day, week, month, etc).
        /// </summary>
    
        [Description("Volume is simply the number of shares (or contracts) traded during a specified time frame (e.g. hour, day, week, month, etc).")]
        public class VolLoBo : Indicator
    
        {

    Hello superg3,

    Any public properties with the [XmlIgnore()] attribute applied will not be saved in xml files such as templates or workspaces. Remove this attribute from any serialization type such as strings, doubles, integers, and booleans. Any other types should likely be serialized.

    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...lor_inputs.htm

    As a tip, To export a NinjaTrader 7 NinjaScript so this may be shared and imported by the recipient do the following:
    1. Click File -> Utilities -> Export NinjaScript
    2. Enter a unique name for the file in the value for 'File name:'
    3. Select the strategy from the objects list on the left -> click the right facing arrow ">" to add the strategy to the export
    4. Click the 'Export' button -> click 'yes' to add any referenced indicators to the export -> click OK to clear the export location message
    By default your exported file will be in the following location:
    • (My) Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\ExportNinjaScript\<export_file_name.z ip>
    Below is a link to the help guide on Exporting NinjaScripts.

        While viewing your indicator's parameters in the property grid, right click for the context menu.

        NinjaTrader supports the saving of your customized values as the new default values for your
        indicator, but will only ever save 1 default template per indicator.

        The defaults are stored in a single XML file in the folder "templates/Indicator".

        TIP:
        If you see strange errors after upgrading to a new version of your indicator, one of the solutions
        might be to delete the old XML template file in "templates/Indicator" folder.

        Look here:
        https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...t_defaults.htm

        Read sections:
        Understanding indicator default settings
        Saving Custom Indicator Settings

        Pay attention to where it shows you to "Right Click" ...
