Variable from custom Indicator

I am trying to pull in a variable from a custom indicator in to a new strategy.

I get the error "the name "trend" does not exist in the current context.

My code is as such:

PrintWithTimeStamp("," + MyCustomIndicator(trend)[1]);

Trend is a variable, and the indicator works fine. I'm just using the print statement to debug. I will ultimately want to use an IF statement such as:

IF (MyCustomIndicator(trend)[1] == 1)
{
make me money
}

TIA!

You need to make sure that your custom indicator has a property defined for the trend state that you are trying to access. I suppose that trend is a BoolSeries (or IntSeries). In that case you would define the property as

 
Code
#region Properties

[Browsable(false)]
[XmlIgnore()]		
public BoolSeries Trend
{
    get { return trend; }
}


Now you can access that property of your custom indicator in a strategy as

 
Code
MyCustomIndicator( .... parameters ....).Trend[0]
