Strategy referencing an indicator drawn object

I am referencing an indicator inside a strategy. This indicator draws dots and creates alerts to indicate conditions that I would like to check for in the strategy code also. Instead of duplicating the indicator logic in the strategy, how can a strategy access the drawn lines or dots or even alerts for given bars when they are not properties?

FYI The indicator in question is is the D3spotterV2 indicator

You would either need to duplicate the logic in the strategy, or access the indicator.

To be able to access the indicator, the indicator should come with a public DataSeries, IntSeries or BoolSeries, such that the logical condition for plotting lines or dots can be accessed.

Thank you. So I can access the dataseries and then duplicate the plotting code in my strategy (but instead of plotting I will set criteria for my strategy). Makes sense.

The indicator in question is editable, could I instead create a bool series in the indicator and set true in it when that indicator is plotting something that I'm interested in? Then I could instead have my strategy more simply refer to my new bool series. Anything wrong with that?

Yes. this makes sense. You can add a BoolSeries to the indicator. You need a public BoolSeries in order to allow for access by a strategy.
