    Workspace Open Event

    I would like to call a function when a given workspace is done opening and I'm wondering how the best way to do this would be. Is there an override OnWorkspaceActivated() type of function, an event handle or do you use OnStateChange()? Is the WorkspaceMenuItem.IsActive a good way to reference it?

    To start out with, I'd just like to show a MessageBox or set a bool variable to true when the workspace is fully loaded.

    Thanks

    Hello BrennanSalibrici,

    Thanks for your post.

    There is not a supported means to identify when the workspace has finished loading. The workspace will load all charts/windows and also load all other indicators. We do not offer a documented event to identify when this has completed.

    You could consider checking when individual scripts have loaded when they have reached State.Realtime, however. For example, you could try looping through all windows, and checking the State of all indicators to see that they have reached this state, which may attain your goal.

    Something like the following:

    Code:
    foreach (var window in NinjaTrader.Core.Globals.AllWindows)
    {
        //check if the found window is a Chart window, if not continue looking
        if (!(window is NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart.Chart)) continue;
    
        window.Dispatcher.InvokeAsync(new Action(() =>
        {
            //try to cast as a Chart, if it fails it will be null
            var foundChart = window as NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart.Chart;
            if (foundChart == null) return;
    
            foreach ( IndicatorBase indi in foundChart.ActiveChartControl.Indicators)
                Print(indi.Name + " " + indi.State);
        }));
    }
    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
