    Help with coding

    I tried to combine the strategy I created with an ATM strategy (The AtmStrategy Template) and copy and pasted to get the following code. I'm coding dumb so what am I doing wrong??

    Hello,

    Thank you for the post.

    It looks like there are quite a few missing or misplaced curly braces for the protected override methods and also the enclosing class.

    I looked the code over and I believe it would be of more benefit to reconstruct a new script based on what you are trying to do. The reason for this is that there are already a lot of misplaced and missing braces in this script so you would in turn spend more time trying to resolve these errors than it would take to combine the two again correctly.

    When you are copying and pasting from one script to another there are a few things that you will need to do in order for the script to work and compile.

    First you need to pay attention to the scope of what you are copying and then what scope you are pasting in. What I mean by this would be if you are trying to take code from script A and put it in script B you will need to ensure to only copy the code needed and place it in the correct area between the curly braces.

    Here is a basic explanation of things to take note of:

    Code:
    namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy
    {
        public class TestStrat : Strategy
        {
    
        }
    }
    This is the basic structure of your strategy, the namespace and the class contained inside the namespaces curly brackets.

    Inside your public class you will have your protected override methods along with any other methods you need.

    This would be the basic structure to follow, when copying you need to make sure that you copy the entire scope, so if you are copying a entire method copy everything to the matching closing curly brace "}".

    Code:
    namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy
    {
        public class TestStrat : Strategy
        {
            protected override void Initialize()
            {
    			
            }
    
            protected override void OnBarUpdate()
            {
    
            }
        }
    }
    These are the basic methods needed for a strategy, this would also be the needed form the script needs to be in to compile. Any code you create would go inside the body of these methods or any of the other available overrides depending on what you are trying to accomplish.

    While you are combining scripts it is helpful to compile after each copy to ensure it compiles, if so then you can start changing the code to suit your script.

    If you have any questions while recreating this please feel free to ask and I will be happy to assist.

      Ok. I tried what you said and came up with this...

      It is telling me I have errors on lines 27 and 72, but I dont understand why.

        Hello,

        Thank you for remaking this.

        Looking at this script there are a few items.

        One is the name of the Class. a NinjaScript file has its internal name which will be the class name and there is a filename as well which is what you will see in windows. These names do not have to match but it is frowned upon when they do not match. It is just good practice to name the file the same as the class name so it is easy to find in both windows and your strategy menu.

        The Class name you currently have is already in use by the original file, so when you are copy pasting you need to be aware of this.

        Here is what you have
        Code:
        public class SampleAtmStrategy : Strategy
            {
        This needs to be a unique name that has not been used by any other strategy, you could simply add another letter or a number or change it all together, here is a fixed version
        Code:
        public class SampleAtmStrategy2 : Strategy
            {
        After correcting the class name there are some errors in the variables that have been set.

        you currently have
        Code:
        private string	atmStrategyId	= string.Empty;
        private string	orderId	= string.Empty;
        private string ADXstrength	=40;
        private string	Offset	=2;
        private string	Period	=10;
        A string will be used for any text value, these values later in the script are being used for a strength, offset and a period all of which are integer or whole number values.

        This would be the correct way to define these variables as an integer

        Code:
        private string	atmStrategyId	= string.Empty;
        private string	orderId	= string.Empty;
        private int ADXstrength	=40;
        private int	Offset	=2;
        private int	Period	=10;
        After these changes the script should compile.

        I will only post these segments as it is good practice to go back and update these values manually so you can see what exactly was in error and needed updated.

        When you are working with numbers in NinjaTrader just keep in mind:
        Any whole number 1,2,3,4,5 will be an integer or an int
        Any number with a decimal in generally will be a double
        A text value would be a string
        A true or false would be a bool.

        These are just some general items that you will see a lot so it is good to memorize each.

        Please let me know if I may be of additional assistance.
