    installing a (.cs) file

    what is the proper way to install an indicator that does not have a zipped package, it is only the (.cs) file?

    thanks.

    Hello Bruce,

    Thanks for your post.

    Although it is preferred that you have the original .zip file, you can import .cs files through the following instructions.

    Please navigate to (My) Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Indicator and copy the .CS File in this directory.

    Next, you will need to compile the indicator and check for errors.

    Please 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 menu--> select the Edit NinjaScript menu item--> select Indicator
    Select an indicator and double click on it.
    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.

        On My Ninja there is no "Open NinjaTrader
        From the Control Center select the Tools menu--> select the Edit NinjaScript menu item--> select Indicator"

        Instrument manager
        Historical Data
        Session
        Hot key

            Follow up question regarding errors while compiling

            "...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."

            Following the tips in this thread to learn how to compile I did end up with error messages. Attached are the screen shots of the errors and the custom files that I suspect they are associated with. Can you tell me what to do here?

            Thank you
