Hide / Unhide Indicator

There must be a way to simply turn on / off an indicator ?
cunparis raised the issue here but even NT 7 doesn't seem to have resolved this simple issue.

If someone can show me how, by using a bool, I can effectively run / not run the indicator - the rest I can do and share eg key codes to switch the indicator 'on' and 'off'

I have tried
(if(CurrentBar = 0 || ShowIndicator)
return;

but once I thought about it that obviously won't work.

Any ideas anyone.

No way to do it. Which is another example of pure insanity. They add all this stuff to NT7 but yet don't add the most basic of things that anyone who uses the platform 8 hours a day would really like to see...

Anyway, went off there a bit, sorry

Change all plots to transparent or remove it from chart. Only options. I should point out in MultiCharts there is a single button you can click -- viola, on/off.

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.

If you want to reprogram your indicators to do what should be done by NT itself, then the easiest way would be to use a boolean like you said.

In the #onbarupdate section, just do if (!ShowIndicator) return;

make sure ShowIndicator is defined and is a Parameter.

Mike,

I totally agree with you. Have you pointed this failure our to Ninja. I beleive that you are Beta testing. It is something very basic, and can be internally programmed in an instant. It is a Toggle.

Sorry, but I've had all the "We'll add it to our list of suggestions for consideration" replies I need for this lifetime.

Hide Ema's Example

Minset

This might be an example of what you wanting to do. I have done this to several indicators, they where all the type where they are overlayed on panel one. Ema's, Pivots, etc. You still have to open the indicator properties but you don't remove from the list for that chart. https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader/indicators/364-download.html?view

I haven't tried one that is in it's own panel like volume, rsi, macd, etc.

Thanks guys

Yes it's certainly a tricky one.
Thanks for all the advice - I will play around and see if I can resolve the whole issue. If I do I will post it here.

Hide / Unhide

Mindset

Check out the jiEconNewsAddln indicator. It has a good example of what would be a neat way to hide/unhide an indicator. You can set his indicator to Autohide and on the Ninja Toolbar bar it adds the ability to unhide it. I don't have the skill to understand how he did it. But I am sure there are plenty here that can.
