    ZOrderType Documentation Error

    I believe there is an error in the NT8 documentation for ZOrderType.

    The documentation shows setting ZOrderType in State == State.SetDefaults. Setting it here does nothing.

    When I set ZOrderType in State == State.Configure instead, it works as expected.

    Also, in the NT8 editor, the Intelliprompt list box does not appear for DrawingToolZOrder.

    Hello gregschr,

    Items that are set in State.SetDefaults only take affect when first adding the script.

    May I confirm you have removed the instance of the script and re-added this each time it is changed? (Reloading the script would not cause default settings to take affect)

      Hi Chelsea,

      I am not sure how to remove an instance of a Drawing Tool script. I was thinking that removing the Drawing Tool from the Chart would do that, but evidently not, so I tried exiting NinjaTrader this time after the changes.

      On restarting NinjaTrader, ZOrderType then worked correctly in State == State.SetDefaults.

      Thanks,
      Greg

        Hello Greg,

        From my understanding the ZOrderType would affect how drawing tools are loaded as the workspace is loaded. (This does not set the actual ZOrder number of the drawing tool as the drawing object is drawn)

        This would mean the workspace would need to be closed and re-opened.

          Thanks Chelsea, closing the workspace is certainly quicker than shutting down NinjaTrader.

          Just an FYI,
          Code:
          ZOrderType = DrawingToolZOrder.AlwaysDrawnFirst
          draws the tool instances Behind the bars.

          Code:
          ZOrderType = DrawingToolZOrder.AlwaysDrawnLast
          draws the tool instances Above the bars.
