New Indicator Programmer (Not new Programmer)

I am seeking the path of least resistance. I am beginning to believe it crosses through here...

I learned programming in the 80s and spent a varied carrier since, mostly engineering and law. I am looking to build competency in NinjaScript.

I have an indicator in mind that involves the following:
creating a new drawing tool and a button on the main menu of the chart panel to activate it;
a draw object, drawn with the new drawing tool, that has certain qualities, including a targeting mode, wherein certain items are displayed, two of which are a "confirm" button and an "abort" button, both of which trigger events that are thereafter managed by different methods; and
a main routine that makes predictions regarding future price action, based on where these draw objects are placed and "influence levels" assigned to each.

Questions:
1) Is it reasonable to assume there might be a programmer who can sling this code and help me with the structure (I feel confident in my understanding of what is possible) during a fairly brief consultation; or
Should I continue to learn this on my own until I can program it completely myself?

I am pretty confident I can interactively assist in the programming that I think only an hour or so would result in something I could then "debug" on my own.

2) Are all the things I mention as capabilities of this indicator possible? E.g., is it possible to place a button on the Chart Tool Bar to enable a drawing tool? Can additional selections be added to a right-click menu? Can these selections be determined based on the location of the cursor -- can I point to my draw object, right-click, then select a specific item that imparts its function to the draw object, such as enable alerts associated with the object?

3) Is my best option to join futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite and search there and pose questions (an option that I intend to do anyway, even if I can spend something reasonable with someone who will field a "Team Viewer" session and sling some code at my direction?

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to participating in the community.

For sure, all those things you mentioned can be done. Check out Adamus' recent chart trader buttons on ninjatrader in the basic area:
https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/1174-download.html

I'm with you in I'd like to see more reference or guide materials on ninjascript than just the help files. For example I think there should be a way to show current session p/l on the chart or some bar on chart trader. But I don't know which are the methods or properties of Ninja to call.

This post is meant purely for entertainment and should not be confused with a real thought.

I am an Elite member of futures.io (formerly BMT) but am not an employee of or a spokesperson for futures.io (formerly BMT) and receive no compensation for recommending futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite membership.

I am not a programmer, coach, trainer or self appointed guru and do NOT hold myself up to be a good example for anything. I do not have a book, trading room or seminar. Even though I have an opinion on every subject under the sun, I do not give financial advice. Nor should I be held responsible for feeble attempts at humor at your expense.





That said .... You should see all the really cool free stuff in the Elite section. You REALLY owe it to yourself to become an Elite member, click Elite Access at the top of the page, it's rather painless.

Yes you can do buttons ....

There are several threads in the elite section regarding the area you are asking about as well as the "Do you want your indicator created for free" thread.

There are some excellent programmers on futures.io (formerly BMT) that can give you input.
