    Code from F1 Help screen doesn't work

    I copy and pasted the following code...(from NinjaTrader7 Help)....and it will not compile.

    protected override void OnBarUpdate()
    {
    // Checks to see if the account has more than $25000
    if (GetAccountValue(AccountItem.CashValue) > 25000)
    {
    // Do something;
    Print ("found the cash value");

    }


    }

    I get the error message......
    "The name 'GetAccountValue' does not exist in the current context.....

    This seems simple enough...not sure why it isn't working..

    Hello Andrew56,

    Thank you for your post.

    Was this thrown in an Indicator or Strategy?

        Andrew56,

        You won't be able to use GetAccountValue() as this is part of the Strategies Base and not accessible from the Indicator.
