View Full Version : Compilation error
07-21-2007, 01:45 AM
Editing a custom indicator named 'MarketDeph', I save it as 'MarketDepthW1' then when compiling, I get this message : 'The type or namespace name 'MarketDepthW1' does not exist in the namespace 'NinjaTrader.Data' (are you missing an assembly reference?)'.
Please, what can I do ?

Likely your installation is screwed up.
- please make sure you are on latest NT6R3
- just in case: you never should rename the NinjaScript files in Windows exporer, but only on the NinjaScript->Edit Indicator/Strategy box
- please try renaming back and see if this resolves the issue.

1) I save back 'MarketDepthW1' indicator as 'MarketDepth'
2) I compile it and get the same error message
'The type or namespace name 'MarketDepthW1' does not exist in the namespace 'NinjaTrader.Data' (are you missing an assembly reference?)'.
3) I delete 'MarketDepthW1' with NT Editor
4) I edit and compile 'MarketDepth' --> compilation is Ok.
The problem remains that I no longer can rename 'OriginalName' indicator as 'NewName' indicator with NT Editor.
So I launched NinjaTrader.Install choosing 'uninstall' then again choosing 'install'.
1) I edit 'OriginalName' indicator and save as 'NewName'
2) I compile it and get the same error message 'The type or namespace name 'NewName' does not exist...'
3) I delete 'NewName' with NT Editor
4) I edit and compile 'OriginalName' --> compilation is Ok.
So NT editor persists in preventing me from saving files under new names. What else can I do ? Re-installing NT from scratch ?

Are you on NT6R3?

Yes I am.
By the way, here is how I incidentally got through my problem.
First, I have to say that every 30 minutes (sometimes less) of running my favourite 7 windows and 4 custom indicators simultaneously, my laptop screen freezes and I loose any control over my PC; the only way to regain control is to shut it off and have the battery going flat.
That happened yesterday when I was stranded with compilation problems.
After having restarted my computer, I launched NT and, as it sometimes does, it did not show up the usual red logo but instead the 'Installing NinjaTrader' window which appeared to be processing an installation for 2 or 3 minutes but never asked for the license key.
I guess, NT includes sort of check-out at starting up which has diagnosed that something was broken so that it went under some repairing.
Eversince when editing a file I can save it under a new name again.
Thanks NinjaTrader !

I had been using NT since it was solved a couple of hours ago then I had some rest. Tonight, as I start my laptop again and launch NT6, I am asked for the License Key that I type in. I find out that NT has been sort of re-installed for I have to create again my custom connexions and my former workspace has disappeared.
I undertake to edit 'MarketDepth1' and save it under 'MarketDepth2'; when I compile I get a bunch of irrelevant compilation errors about variables that are not mentioned at all in my code !
Still under NT Editor, I try to delete 'MarketDepth2' and get this message : " MarketDepth2 cannot be deleted. It is referenced by '.cs' ".
Very strange !

Ok, let's try to square out these different issues:
- please hold off renaming your NinjaScript files for now. There is a bug which will be fixed with next update (available this or next week)
- your installation appears to be screwed up. Please:
* uninstall NT control panel
* backup directory <my documents>/bin/Custom to save any NS custom file
* manually remove directory <my documents>/bin/Custom
* reinstall NT from here:
Please open up a different thread in case your experience further non-related problem (liek the lockup you mentioned below).

Please, what do you exactly mean by 'Uninstall NT control panel' ? I can't see any such a choice among Control Panel menus.
What I usually do is executing NinjaTrader.Install and then opting for uninstallation. Is this still correct ?
Thanks for your help and I apologize for not opening a different thread.

Sorry, should read: "uninstall NT via control panel"
