    No edit ninjascript menu choice in Tools Memu

    I wish to compile/add a 3rd party indicator that has come to me as a .cs file. When I go to the Tools menu in order to choose the Edit Ninjascript function, no such item appears. I am using the most recent version of NT7 (40) that I installed TODAY. Please advise. Thank you.

    Hello podowitz,

    Thanks for writing in.

    Although it is preferred that you have the original .zip file, you can import .cs files through the following instructions.
    • Navigate to (My) Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Indicator.
    • Copy the .CS File in this directory.
    Next, you will need to compile the indicator and check for errors.

    Follow the instructions to compile the indicator. Note that you will not see your new indicator listed until after you compile your indicators. You will first need to select an existing indicator and compile these from there. This is because NinjaTrader compiles all indicators and strategies- not just one.
    • Open NinjaTrader.
    • From the Control Center select the Tools> Edit NinjaScript> Indicator.
    • Select ANY indicator and press 'OK'.
    • A new window will appear and you will need to right click in the window and select Compile to compile the indicators.
    • If no errors appear, the import should be complete.

    Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.

      Thanks, Tyler, but this does not answer my question.
      As I stated originally, there is NO menu choice, "Edit NinjaScript" visible
      when I open up my TOOLS menu. That is the issue.
      Accordingly, is there any other way to compile this indicator?

        Hello podowitz,

        Thanks for your reply.

        This is because you have a free license key entered in NinjaTrader 7. Please write into PlatformSupport[AT]NinjaTrader[DOT]com and put ATTN: Tyler in the subject line so that I may assist with getting the indicator compiled for you.

        I look forward to being of assistance.
