    How to print "_myChart.ActiveChartControl" Parent Items ??

    Hi all,

    I am developing an Addon and couple of indicators and would like to know all the "Text_String_Calls" for the Window.GetWindow( _myChart.ActiveChartControl.Parent).FindFirst("Cha rtWindowInstrumentSelector") ~ which in this case is "ChartWindowInstrumentSelector"

    Is there a way to Print them all to Output Screen? I have tried a few different approaches but have been unsucessful:

    ie/
    foreach (var Parent in _myChart.ActiveChartControl.)
    {
    Print(
    _myChart.ActiveChartControl.ToString
    );
    }

    Hello Blairski,

    Could you provide more details about what you are trying to find in the window? I am not sure what you mean by "Text_String_Calls".

    If you are referring to the automation ids: FindFirst("ChartWindowInstrumentSelector") You can use Microsoft inspect tool or AccessibilityInsights to browse the controls in a window. Here is a public link to AccessibilityInsights: https://accessibilityinsights.io/

    Those type of WPF exploration programs can be used to mouse over controls in a window and reveal properties about that control. The automation ID's can be turned on in the configuration of AccessibilityInsights so you can mouse over controls to see what their ID's are.

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

      Hi Jesse,

      I downloaded AccessibilityInsights and was not getting information I was looking for or need. Is there a way I can print automation IDs with NinjaScript as per example I provided above?

      Please note that the automation ID that AccessibilityInsights provided for the instrument box in top left corner of chart was not "ChartWindowInstrumentSelector" but rather ChartWindowInstrumentSelectorMenuItem".

        Hello Blairski,

        I am not aware of a way to print the ids. We generally just use one of the external tools to browse the structure of the window for the element in question. In some situations you may need to use the tree view in the external application to find the control you need if the mouse over was not accurate or got you a outer control like a menu item. WPF controls are nested so you sometimes will need to re select the correct area in the control to get the right id. Automation ids are added for convenience but there is no documentation/list of ids or easy way to print them from NinjaScript.


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

          Hi Jesse, NTS,

          Is it possible to provide a print screen(s) of what the AccessibilityInsights or Microsoft inspect tool screen should look like when capturing the automation ID's with NinjaTrader charts?

          Kind Regards

            Hello Blairski,

            The only item which you would need to enable is automation ID's in AccessibilityInsights, in inspect the automation ID should be present in the list if it is available. Looking at the main screen of AccessibilityInsights you can click the Gear icon on the top right, that will let you choose Configure the columns to always shown, you can double click Automation ID's in the left list to move it to the right list, that will keep it visible when mousing over controls.

            Also keep in mind not everything has automation ID's, there are only select controls in the platform with ID's, if you mouse over something which does not show an ID there is a good chance it just does not have an ID.


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