You could reuse this thread here, much better than creating a new one.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hi all,

Is there someone still working on converting NT6.5 indicators into NT7?

There is one indicator, drawtext() has been changed since ypixeloffset() is added in NT7. It can compile, but nothing displayed on the panel.

I followed the log indication, trying to put some codes from Initialize into OnBarUpdate(), but nothing changed.

Could you guys please take a look at the indicator?

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I am trying to use TripleEMA from here https://futures.io/elite-circle/721-tripleema-indicator.html
After importing it compiles without any problems but doesn't show up in the indicator list.
It might be conversion issue from NT6.5 to NT7.
Any help is appreciated.

If you double-click the zipped file, you will see a folder inside the zipped folder (Indicator). If you double-click that folder you will see the indicator is actually called "TripleEMA". Scroll down your indicator list & look for "TripleEMA"

Even though the name of the Zipped folder is BigMike_TripleEMA_VIPonly, the actual indicator that Ninja imports is called "TripleEMA".

It's there, trust me.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I remember having this same problem some time ago. The problem is the indicator has no label. Scroll all the way to the top of your indicator list. There will be a blank white space with enough room to hold an indicator name. That's where it is. Double click the blank space and it will show up where it should. Not sure why some older indicators do this.

Hope this helps,

Rick

The indicator does not show because of line 35
 
Code
this.Name = "";

Please edit the indicator and delete that line and recompile. Or alternatively replace the string "" with "TripleEMA", then compile, and the indicator will show as TripleEMA.
