    Ninjatrader 7 custom indicators convert to Ninjatrader 8

    I have NT7 custom indicators and I would like to use them on NT8. Is there any source to learn how to convert indicators.
    Thank you

    Hi condor,

    While there is no step-by-step guide that will show you how to do so, you would be well served by looking through the code-breaking changes from NT7 > NT8, as this will detail what parts of your scripts will need to be changed to be in compliance with NT8's under the hood changes.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

      I did know about Code Breaking Changes. Where can I start from? I have custom indicators open code. Do I need to change code on NT7 or start new indicator and copy and past code in NT8 .and then change code. Thank you

        Hi condor,

        What I would do is, using the Code Breaking Changes as your guide, go line by line through your NT 7 code and type the equivalent into NinjaTrader 8. Compile after each line to see what errors may have arisen.

          1. Copy the cs file as is to NT8 and compile.
          2. Correct the identified errors.

                You go to the identified place and examine the code. Correct the code by reference to the "Code Breaking Changes" or C# documentation. There is no shortcut: it is a very manual process.

                  Hi condor,

                  While going through your code and running into a particular compile error code like you mentioned while doing so, it may be a worthy resource to keep in mind the NT8 Compile Error Codes as well.

                      Hello Jack86,

                      Thank you for your post.


                      The file you provided is not an indicator file and appears to be part of a protected assembly package. Do you have the .cs file for the NinjaTrader 7 version? The .cs file in the .zip you provided is not an indicator.

                      I look forward to your response.
