Default Getting ChartTab

Is it possible to get the ChartTab object the indicator resides on from within the indicator?

Yes. Depends though on what you mean by get. What do you want to do with it?

Well, by "get" I mean to get it.
Jokes aside: my indicators have a complex system to communicate with each other. In Nt7 I could use ChartId in the persistence department, but in Nt8 there are more tabs within a chart the indicator can be on so I'll need tabIds and all other info I can easily get if I have the actual ChartTab object the indicator is sitting on.

My problem is that I cannot seem to find a way to access the ChartTab as I can the ChartControl and the OwnerChart.

Now if we take this a step further: I guess getting all ChartTabs/ChartControls on a given Chart is not this simple, is it.

Guess it would depend on if you want all the tabs of just the indicators chart window, or if you want all the tabs from all the windows..

In the first case..

Code:
 Chart chartWindow = Window.GetWindow(ChartControl.Parent) as Chart; 
foreach(TabItem tab in this.chartWindow.MainTabControl.Items)
Example here.. . https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...th_buttons.htm

If your looking for all tabs in all windows.. you'll prob want to start with something like this..

Code:
 foreach (Window window in NinjaTrader.Core.Globals.AllWindows) { //do something }
but I'm not sure how much this last one will be supported..
