    Plotting a custom indicator

    Hi

    I have a very simple question.
    I don't know why I can't see my custom indicator plot line.

    I see the last bar level on the price axis colored blue but I don't see the historical line plotted on the chart.

    In the Initialize method :

    Code:
    Add(new Plot(Color.Blue, PlotStyle.Line, "Mycustom"));
    CalculateOnBarClose = true;
    Overlay = true;
    On Bar Update :
    Code:
    if(CurrentBar == 0)
    Mycustom.Set(0);
    
    Mycustom.Set(Close[0]);
    In properties :
    Code:
    [Browsable(false)]
    [XmlIgnore]
    public DataSeries Mycustom
    {
      get { return Values[0]; }
    }
    What could be wrong ?

    Hi blar58,

    I can't see what's wrong there. That's essentially the bare bones script that's created when you create an indicator in the wizard. Any error messages in log tab of control center?

    Please feel free to try with attached script, which is the about the same as you posted and is working here.

      I have no errors in the log. I didn't create this indicator with the wizard. I created it from scratch.

        Then that is the problem. You need to create indicators from the wizard. There's additional required code that is only there when you create through the wizard.

          How do you mean "from scratch"? Did you not use the NT Editor?

            Hi Koganam


            I just wanted to say that I didn't use the wizard.

              The only way to create indicators is to use Tools > New NinjaScript > Indicator (the wizard).

                Hi Ryan


                I think there has been a misunderstanding. I used the wizard. I have to.

                I still have the same problem. Don't see the plotting line.

                I mean this is a simple indicator what is the problem ?

                  blar58, did you compile the script after you coded it? Can you please describe the exact steps you took in creating this indicator?

                          I just replied, there's no need for you to keep the custom Plot override section if you intend to plot from the OnBarUpdate().

                            You got it.

                            I am using a template that incorporate all useful methods. I forgot to hide the override plot method


                            Many thanks
