Question [DrawingTool] How to determine method of reaching State.Terminated?

hello,

Does anybody know how to tell the difference in how a drawing reaches State.Terminated?

I'm trying to check if my custom drawingtool reaches Terminated state when a drawing is deleted/removed, as opposed to reaching State.Terminated via reloading ninjascript.


Thanks!
TG

Hello gubbar924,

I’m not seeing a simple way to check this.

What are you trying to do in State.Terminated that you need to know the difference?

I look forward to your reply.

1.) Declare and set private bool in your drawing tool to false..
private bool b_ConfigSet = false;

2.) In State.Configure set bool true.. (this only runs once)
b_ConfigSet = true;

3.) In State.Terminated use bool as Condition.. (only print if configured)
if(b_ConfigSet) Print("Something");

Thank you, I had forgotten about using a variable for state checking, I'll give that a go.

@NinjaTrader_AlanP
I dont need to do anything specific with it, I was just wondering if there was a way to run some code only if/when the script/item is being removed from the chart.


thanks guys!

I have not yet tried it on a drawingtool, but it had worked successfully in the past for me (on an indicator script)
