View Full Version : Problem with Indicators
04-03-2007, 01:38 PM
I hit my right mouse key and brought up the pop up and then went to indicators and there was an indicator that was not listed in the indicator edit window. How can I have indicators in the window where I add indicators to a chart and not have them where I can open them up in the indicator edit window. It is a custom indicator I wrote and can still plot it, but can't find it to edit it.

Several potential causes for this problem:
a) There could be some confusion with indicator names.
Indicators have a name which is the C# classname. In addition there is the name of the file where the indicator is saved. You'll see this name in the indicator edit box.
Both names could be different. This by no means is a suggested approach, but apparently you then either changed the name of the C# class or the filename manually, so they now do not match any longer.
b) You could have manually moved the indicator file to a different location (e.g. from <my documents>binCustomIndicator to <my documents>binCustomStrategy) -> indicator no longer will show up the in the indicator edit dialog.
c) else ?
To clear up confusion you could
a) open each and every non standard indicator file and see if the C# classname matches the filename. Please make them match if they don't.
b) go to windows explorer and research <my documents>binCustom directory (plus subdirectories) to see where the missing file could be
c) worst case (not recommended solution) you could
- uninstall NT6
- manually delete <my documents>binCustom
- reinstall NT6
This will delete all (!) custom indicators and strategies
