    NTMessageBoxWindow in Addon

    I am looking to make a NTMEssageBox in an Addon - however this addon does not have a way to get the ChartControl object that is required for the Window parameter.

    Is there a method to create this MessageBox by creating or linking the MessageBox to NT 8 or recreate the Window object that is needed?

    Hello WHICKED,

    Thank you for your post.

    There's an example of launching a message box from a button press in an add-on in our help guide for NTMessageboxSimple.Show() in our help guide here:

    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ple_show().htm

    Does your add-on not include a window? You could loop through the charts and find a ChartControl object that way to show the message box.

    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;
    
    // make sure we found a chart
    if (foundChart == null) return;
    
    // get the chart control
    ChartControl chartControl = foundChart.ActiveChartControl;
    
    if (chartControl == null) return;
    
    // deal with message box here
    
    }));
    
    }
    Please let us know if we may be of further assistance to you.
