    Strategy Using Custom Methods from Addon

    I am creating a custom partial class to handle to hold some code I will be reusing through out several strategies. But when i call the custom methods, it seems the strategy does not execute the code. No orders are placed and I do not get any errors in the log nor output screen.

    snippet from my addon file:
    PHP Code:
    namespace NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.Strategies
    {
        public 
    partial class RemoteControl Strategy
        
    {
            
            
    // This can be accessed from within another addon with MySharedMethodsAddonExample.SharedDouble
            // or can be accessed from any script using NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.AddOns.MySharedMethods.SharedDouble
            
            
    public static DateTime lastWriteAlive
            
    getset; }

            public 
    void BuyBid_rc(int ordersizedouble Bidstring SignalName)
            {
            
    EnterLongLimit(ordersize,BidSignalName);        
            }
            
            public 
    void SellAsk_rc(int ordersizedouble Askstring SignalName)
            {
            
    EnterShortLimit(ordersize,Ask,SignalName);
            }
        
        } 
    Snippet from my strategy referencing the custom partial class

    PHP Code:
    private RemoteControl RC;
    RC    = new RemoteControl();

     if (
    GRUp)
             {
             if (!(
    DrawObjects["DotUp" CurrentBar] != null && DrawObjects["DotUp" CurrentBar].GetType().Name == "Dot"))
                    
    Draw.Dot(this"DotUp" CurrentBartrue0GetCurrentAsk(), Brushes.Blue);
                
             
                 
    Draw.VerticalLine(this"Vline" CurrentBar0Brushes.LightBlue);
               
    // EnterLong(0,orderSize,"G2Up");
                 
    RC.BuyBid_rc(orderSize,GetCurrentBid(),"G2Up");
             }
             
             
               if (
    GRDn)
                {
                if (!(
    DrawObjects["DotDn" CurrentBar] != null && DrawObjects["DotDn" CurrentBar].GetType().Name == "Dot"))
                         
    Draw.Dot(this"DotDn" CurrentBartrue0GetCurrentBid(), Brushes.Red);
                          
                   
    Draw.VerticalLine(this"Vline" CurrentBar0Brushes.PeachPuff);
                
    RC.SellAsk_rc(orderSize,GetCurrentAsk(),"G2Dn");
                    
    //EnterShort(0,orderSize,"G2Dn");
                 

    the strategy runs correctly if uncomment the original Entry orders.

    Why does RemoteControl inherit from Strategy?

    Is the RemoteControl class a strategy?

    No, it's not.

    It's just a plain old ordinary helper class.

    When defining RemoteControl, it should be redesigned with a constructor to accept the 'this' object, so that it can call methods from the Strategy object it is being used by.

    Check out the first post from this thread. Download the OP's attached code file and study his helper class called ExitManager. You need to borrow the idea behind this technique and do the same for your RemoteControl class.
