The following document is intended as a high level overview of the NinjaScript changes you can expect between NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8.  For specific information on a particular method or property, you can refer to the dynamically formatted Code Breaking table at the bottom of this page.  We recommend using the Filter and Sorting features built into the table, as well checking the Summary column and expanding the Details section of each entry for general information.  Referring to the conveniently linked NinjaTrader 8 and NinjaTrader 7 documentation will provide specific information on syntax, usage, and examples of any new implementation or element names.  


Note:  Information on this page focuses on supported (documented) NinjaTrader methods and properties shared between versions.  NinjaTrader 8 has seen a significant increase in supported NinjaTrader code, however if you were using previously undocumented NinjaTrader 7 methods or properties, they will NOT be covered in this topic.  You may be able to find more information on previously undocumented methods and properties in the NinjaTrader 8 Help Guide, or our support staff will also be happy to personally point you in the right direction.


Critical:   If your product uses unsupported (undocumented) elements we strongly urge you to put your scripts through thorough testing to ensure they still behave as expected.  There is NO guarantee that previously undocumented method or property behavior has not changed in the new version of NinjaTrader 8.
