    Draw.Diamond on Add-On

    Hello

    I'm trying to transfer my code from NT7 to NT8.

    I wrote a function that wraps Draw.Diamond which pass compilation on my indicator:

    Code:
    public Diamond DiamondDraw(double y, DateTime dateTime, Brush brush)
            {
                return (Draw.Diamond(this, Guid.NewGuid().ToString(), false, dateTime, y, brush));
            }

    However I want it to be on my Add-on so I wont need to copy it to each indicator. How can that be accomplished?

    Thanks

    Hello kiss987,

    Thank you for your note.

    I have attached a sample Addon which contains your draw diamond method inside a partial indicator class. The attachment also includes a indicator which references your method.

    You should note that if you try to export this indicator you will have to include this partial class, or include it within the indicator. I have this position commented out at the bottom of the attached indicator.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

      Thank you for your reply.

      On my addon file I have the following code:

      namespace NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.AddOns
      {
      public partial class MySharedMethods : NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.AddOnBase
      {
      }
      }

      Is it possible to move the DiamondDraw method to this area so it will be effective for both indicators and strategies?

        Hello kiss987,

        If you test the method inside the Addon namespace, like your suggestion, are you able to call it from a strategy?

        A working approach would be to add the following code to the end of the file I provided and you could reference the strategy method from within a strategy.

        Code:
        namespace NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.Strategies
        {
        	public partial class Strategy
        	{
        		public NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.DrawingTools.Diamond DiamondDraw1(double y, DateTime dateTime, Brush brush)
                       {
                           return (NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.DrawingTools.Draw.Diamond(this, Guid.NewGuid().ToString(), false, dateTime, y, brush));
                       }
        	}
        }
        Please let us know if you need further assistance.
