    How to call an indicator with ENUMs in its properties

    New to C#.

    If I wanted to call an indicator that has enums as part of it's properties (i.e. user settable from the ui) how could they be set from within the calling code?

    For example, in the example code "SampleUniversalMovingAverage" the moving average type, which drives a switch/case block within the indicator, is not shown within the method's signature.
    Is there an elegant way to use enums so they can be set from within other calling methods and optimized later also? Or do I need to remove enums and use something like an int with various values being equivalent to each enum (but this approach obviously is not ideal)....

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello lavalampmj,

    This is because this indicator was not programmed with an input. You would just need to add the NinjaScriptProperty attribute to the property to make it an input.

    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...injascriptprop

    Code:
    [Display(GroupName = "Parameters", Description="Choose a Moving Average Type."), NinjaScriptProperty]
            public CustomEnumNamespace.UniversalMovingAverage MAType
            {
                get { return maType; }
                set { maType = value; }
            }
    After recompiling you could then access this from other files like the following:
    Code:
    SampleUniversalMovingAverage(CustomEnumNamespace.UniversalMovingAverage.SMA);

    I look forward to being of further assistance.
