    Anyone know how to modify an indicator?

    I have a tick counter that gives a countdown right next to the bar that's currently forming, but it often covers up part of the bar, so I'd like to find a way to scoot it to the right by 5 or 10 pixels. I've attached a pic of it in action as well as the indicator script file

    Hello EnveousColnago, thanks for your question.

    It looks like you could add a " " (blank space) character at the beginning of the display string to fix this. Any other rendering into the future would need to be done with custom text rendering, see the CustomPlotSample for a demonstration of this.

    Please let me know if I can assist any further.

      Do you know where that would be in the file I linked? I don't know anything about programming, but even a screenshot saying 'insert " " here' would be great

      Thanks!

        Hello, thanks for your reply.

        Try adding this right after line 58:

        sTicCnt = " " + sTicCnt;

        Press F5 to compile after adding the line.

        Please note that any changes or upgrades that need to be done for a script will usually need to be addressed by the original developer.

        Kind regards.

              Hello EnveousColnago, thanks for your reply.

              Can you tell me exactly what the compile error is saying? I can not see the full message from the screen shot.

              Kind regards.

                      I keep getting an error that says:

                      The namespace 'NinjaTrader.Indicator' already contains a definition for 'sbTickCounter'

                      I've tried renaming the file to sbTickCounter2 and replacing all instances of 'sbTickCounter' in the file with 'sbTickCounter2', but I keep getting the same error

                        Hello EnveousColnago , thanks for your reply.

                        That means there is still a duplicate definition for the tick counter indicator. I recommend removing the sbTickCounter2 entirely and making a copy of the original by opening the original in the NinjaScript editor> Right click> Save As> Save under a different name. Make sure this one compiles before editing it.

                        Kind regards.
