    Access the current color style properties

    Hello,

    I'm developing an add on with custom charts and controls and want to utilize the current color scheme.

    I'll have something like the "Cumulative Net Profit" chart. If I can use this control will be perfect !



    If it is not exposed publicly, I need to access its main colors. By looking at the image I can distinguish at least the following properties:

    - BackColor
    - ForeColor
    - GridColor
    - GridFillColor
    - GeenLineColor
    - GreenAreaColor
    - RedLineColor
    - RedAreaColor

    Of course I can take these colors from the screenshot, but they change for each color scheme.

    Also, how I can access another base colors of the scheme?
    Can I also have a list of the StaticResource properties in xaml.

    Hello PopovMP,

    Thank you for your post.

    There would not be a means to pull the control's properties/values directly. You can pull the Skin name applied using NinjaTrader.Core.Globals.GeneralOptions.Skin. If you needed to read a specific color used you could potentially utilize System.IO.StreamReader. We have a sample on reading an external file at the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ead.php?t=3476

    Aside from reading the Skin XAML file, I am not aware of a means to pull the colors directly in NinjaScript.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
