    Drawing tools are not packaged with indicator

    Hi, I am trying to export my indicator and my drawing tools as compiled assembly in single add-on (zip file) . But it is adding only the indicator dll, but not dll of drawing tools. Do I need to follow any additional steps ?

    Hello nandhumca,

    Thanks for your post.

    Can you clarify the steps you took to create the export assembly?

    Questions:
    1) Does the indicator specifically call the drawing tools you are adding?
    2) Can you show what the export zip file contains?

      Hi Paul, I am not referring or calling directly from indicator. I am using below reflection code to create the instance of drawing tool. My zip file contains only three file (Info, MyIndicator.cs, MyIndicator.dll)

      Core.Globals.AssemblyRegistry["NinjaTrader.Custom"].CreateInstance("MyDrawingTool") as DrawingTools.DrawingTool;

        Hello nandhumca,

        Thanks for your reply.

        There are cases where Reflection is required for copying objects to new assemblies, which is used by Drawing Tools which use PriceLevels, but using reflection outside of cases like this would go beyond our scope of support.

        Could you elaborate on what you are trying to do when creating a new instance of the DrawingTool?

        Note that DrawingToolTile uses ChartControl.TryStartDrawing to invoke drawing tool pens.

        Getting past the reflection bits, could you also prepare a barebones set of scripts that we can import manually and take the same steps you are so we may better assist?

            Hello nandhumca,

            Thanks for your reply.

            Here is a quick example:

            else if (State == State.Realtime)
            {
            if (ChartControl != null)
            {
            ChartControl.Dispatcher.InvokeAsync(new Action(() => {
            ChartControl.TryStartDrawing("NinjaTrader.NinjaScr ipt.DrawingTools.Line");
            }));
            }
            }
