    Drawing Objects on Chart

    Hi
    I am trying to make a simple indicator test where the indicator reads the lines drawn on a chart. But it seems thar the line that was drawn on the chart is not registered in the DrawObjects colleaction as the collection comes up empty. I have attched a image of the simple code and the chart. What am I doing wrong here ?

    Regards,
    Sune

    Hello SuneSorgenfrei,

    Thanks for your post.

    Please see the DrawObjects documentation for notes on accessing the DrawObjects collection. There is no guarantee a manually drawn object or object drawn from a separate script will be added to the DrawObjects collection before an indicator starts processing data, but you can consider checking after State.Realtime.

    DrawObjects - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...rawobjects.htm

    States - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...tatechange.htm

    We look forward to assisting.

      Hi Jim
      What this also mean that the Chart instrument needs to have the Markets open ? Or does thtat not matter ?

      Best Regards,

        Hello Sune,

        If you check for State == State.Realtime in OnStateChange, then you can capture when the script is ready to process realtime data, without needing incoming ticks.

        You may place a print in a check for State == State.Realtime in OnStateChange, and test on a chart when you are disconnected to confirm.

        Let us know if you have any additional questions.
