    Calling a custom indicator from a strategy

    Hi,

    I've read many posts here while trying to solve my problem but couldn't find a solution so I've decided to post this.

    I have an indicator that draws rectangles and if I understood correctly I can't use AddPlot and instead, I should have my List<> of rectangles exposed so I can draw them from my strategy. The first problem I'm facing is that I can see that the OnBarUpdate of the indicator is not called.

    Thanks for the help

    Hello ofiramitai,

    Moving past the drawing and just to the OnBarUpdate part of the question, generally if you are not using a Plot you need to call Update() on the indicator so it can run. Have you tried:

    ba.Update();

    Please let me know if I may be of additional assistance.

      Hi,

      Thank you for your answer. Where do I need to place the call for Update() on my indicator?

        Hello ofiramitai,

        Please excuse my last post sample, it is difficult working with images when code is related. Instead of ba, it your indicator instance above that the aoBalance. You would need to call Update in OnBarUpdate of the strategy for the indicator instance.
