One Trade Per Bar NINJASCRIPT

I need to code my strategy so that it wil stop taking more than one trade per bar. I am using onbar update, because of the nature of the entry level (on a pull back of 10 ticks from the high of the bar that is painting). The strategy enters the trade and hits the target. Then it re-enters the trade, when the entry condition exhists again on the same bar. How can I stop this from happening, without using the calculate on bar close function?

When the order is placed, set a bool condition at the same time that prevents additional orders.

Reset bool condition to accept new orders on new bar or first tick of bar.

you can check to make sure the strategy is flat before entering.

place this in your code where you test for entry conditions.

Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Flat

That Test is In The Code

I have found something that works somewhat, but I think there is a better solution. I have a variable that changes when ever I enter a trade. That variable will not be zero againg until the bar ends. This seems to work most of the time. Sometimes the market moves so fast that the variable is reset to zero and at the same time the trade re-triggers. I am getting close. Any thoughts on how to fix this. I am using range bars and the variable resets to zero if I hit the top or the bottom of the range bar. Is there a string that checks to see if this is a new bar? Then I can tell the strategy to reset the variable to zero if a New bar is painting. Once again Thank you for your input.
