    Acessing MasterInstrument from ApplyDefaultValue or OnStateChange()

    How can I get the name of the chart instrument from both of these locations?

    Hello NinjaCustomer,

    Thank you for your note.

    This information would not be available in any state change however would be available in in State.DataLoaded. See the following link and possible states,

    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...tatechange.htm

    Regarding your ApplyDefaultValue question, are you trying to access this information in a custom bars type, and what are you attempting to do?

    I look forward to your reply.

      I'm trying to get the name of the chart symbol from within a custom bars type in order to set the value to use to construct the bars (value is dependent upon which chart symbol it is)

        Hello NinjaCustomer,

        I have attached a sample BarType which will print to the output window the Contract the bartype is applied to. You’ll see on line 42 of the code,

        Code:
        Print(bars.Instrument.FullName.ToString());
        Which would print ES 06-18. If you wanted only ES to be printed you could use,

        Code:
        Print(bars. Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name.ToString());
        Please let us know if you need further assistance.
