IntSeries and Data Box

I would like an IntSeries to be shown in the Data Box....for each bar I have 4 integer values I want to store, and view in the Data Box.

I don't want the values on the chart, even in a separate panel.

However, after interacting with the Ninja Forum it seems there is not even a work around....

Or, is there...? It could be that someone at futures.io (formerly BMT) knows how to do this...

Here is the information I have.....

The only values show in the databox are Visible (i.e. non Transparent) Plots....

so making it a Plot (a double data type) would work, but as soon as it is set to Transparent, it no longer shows in the Data Box.

Any ideas?

You cannot display an IntSeries in a data box.

The only workaround that comes to my mind goes as follows


-> create a new indicator with a single plot
-> store any of four double values (for example 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0)
-> set the new indicator to Overlay = true, AutoScale = false

As the indicator is applied to the price panel, the values 1.0 to 4.0 may not show up on the visible part of the chart. This approach would work for ES, YM or any instrument with a minimum price well above 4.0

For FOREX or any instrument with smaller values, you would need to use indicator values of 0.01, 0.02, 0.03 and 0.04 which would represent your four integers.

Thanks Fat tails...

I'm going to try this....

Plot the 4 integer values as Line Plots in a second panel. Since I don't want the plots on my chart, or even to see them I'll just scrunch the second panel down.

I suppose since they are plots they should show up in the Data Box.

--------

Another option is to not plot the values at all, but store them in a IntSeries, and have a small docked window display the values on some mouse event....but then this is just another conversion task when Ninja 8 comes out.

How about you tell us specifically what you are trying to observe and perhaps there is another way. What are the 4 integer values representing?

integer values

the 4 integer values are the slopes of 4 moving averages

I have the code to calculate the slope and it is working well

however having these values plot on panel 1 makes no sense at all and would mess up the chart because the slopes have nothing to do with price (Y axis)

what I want to do is know the slope at different points (bars) by having them in the Data Box

I don't want to see the slopes all the time, just for research and studies....

Sooo if the issue for you is that can cannot display an int series in the data box, can you just make it a double?

the issue

the issue is that only visible plots show in the databox

I could make it a DataSeries Plot, that is a double....

but I don't want to see it on the chart, that is the problem

-----------------

well, unless there is a way to hide the plot and still have it in the data box, I'll go to one of the solutions I mentioned, if no one else has a better idea

So just make the plots transparent. I just tested that with an EMA plotted on a chart. I turned it transparent and I could still see the values in the databox.

Plot syncs with Y axis


Try it with a plot that has nothing to do with the Y axis...when it is in panel 1 it will mess up the chart.

An EMA/SMA is synched with the Y axis/price, but something like a slope integer plot is not

That seems to be what I found...if I 'm wrong let me know and I'll retest....

It would probably work in panel 2....as I mentioned may be a solution...but it is something I would prefer to not be on the chart.

I don't think NT 7 has a hide panel function...that lets a panel be active but how displayed..that would work also.
