NT7 - Programming a Scale Justification=Overlay?

Anyone know how to set a plot to justify as an overlay, programmatically, in NT7? I'm not talking about overlays over the price. I mean on the panels below the price panel.

I'm programming a indicator and I want to put BOTH an EMA and a StdDev on the same panel (ie Panel 2). I know that this can be done with two separate indicators and later in the Indicator panel, set each one to justify left and right as overlays.. but I need to do this in a script so it is automatically set up this way.

So how would I put the EMA scale on the right and the StdDev on the left?

For example, this doesn't work:

Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Black), PlotStyle.Line, "EMAPlot"));
Plots[1].Scale = Overlay;
Plots[1].Scale.Justification = Left;

Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Red), PlotStyle.Line, "StdDevPlot"));
Plots[2].Scale = Overlay;
Plots[2].Scale.Justification = Right;

Does anyone know of any documentation for NT7 programming? The included help section absolutely stinks for explaining programming NT7's new features.

I found how to justify (below). But how to do this for each plot ("EMAPlot" and "StdDevPlot") ? Any suggestions?

ScaleJustification = ScaleJustification.Left; // Indicator will be plotted on the left scale
NinjaTrader Version 7

This fails:
Plots[0].ScaleJustification ScaleJustification.Overlay
This fails too:
 EMAPlot.ScaleJustification ScaleJustification.Overlay

You can't do it for each plot. All plots of an indicator are grouped together in terms of the panel and scale they reside on. Thus, you can either set all plots to either display on the Left, Right or Overlay scale.
