How can I get values from fin alg's TPO indicator?

Please forgive my ignorance and the many gaps in my understanding. I've only programmed a few things in Ninjascript, and I don't really know how to get values from indicators.

I can see that to get a value from EMA you can do something simple like this:
double value = EMA(20)[0];
Print("The current EMA value is " + value.ToString());

But what about a more complicated third-party indicator that has multiple values? I'm specifically wanting to get values from fin-alg's TPO and Volume Profile Chart (v4). How would I put the VAH and VAL, etc., into variables so that I can use them in a script?

Thanks in advance for any insights!

Better to use this:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/24449-gom-profiling-toolkit-strategies-market-volume-profile.html

I had Gomi develop this profile toolkit for me a while back. It handles all typical MP/VP stuff, and is written specifically for use in strategies.

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.

Market Profile Lines

I did get a response from fin-alg that said "Market Profile Lines will support this"...

fin-alg has multiple products, which is confusing, and I guess TPO and Volume Profile Chart doesn't allow you to grab the values in a script, but Market Profile Lines will.

I haven't tried it yet, but just posting here in case someone else has the same question.

Of course Gomi's solution is free... yet it seems to require a bit of work to setup (at least for me).

I am not sure if you looked at the thread or not, but the product I asked Gomi to create for this purpose is streamlined. It doesn't require anything special really. It has been several years, but I am pretty sure at least...
