Pick up black box signals?

I have a black box indicator. I don't want to hack it or anything like that - but what I would like to be able to do is pick up (in code) when it gives a signal.
I have asked the developer if he could provide a 1 - 0 -1 output but he refuses.
One of the things this black box does is play a sound file on each signal.
Is it possible to capture when a sound file is played??

hm - no idea - i dont think thats possible.

does it plot arrows or so, something that stays permanently ?
or does it only play sounds ?

but if the developer isnt willing to offer an output for further usage, you are forced to reverse-engeneer it i think

Plots

Yes it does plot arrows and stuff that are permanent.
I have no hope of reverse engineering it - I don't want to resort to that kind of stuff- but was hoping I could sort of work my way behind it.
I can also get the signals in the data box - again I was wondering if somehow I could 'capture' the signals there?

NT 6.5 or 7? It may be difficult to pick up the draw objects, but I've done similar using the bar color. Is the indicator coloring bars according to the signals?

BarColors

Unfortunately there is no bar color change that would be useful.

Have you used IntelliSense or the wizards to see what exposed dataseries are available? You might be able to find one and piggy back it.

Why does the guy refuse to help? Is it because he doesn't want it to be automated? Or maybe it's because he knows if you backtest it, it will fail. I would be more concerned with why he is not wanting to help, it's probably a precursor of what is to come.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
6)

Intellisense

Sorry Mike you would have to explain that a little more. How would a wizard / intellisens expose a dataseries - that's a new one to me?

On the other note (testing,etc ) I totally agree with you ( hence I had better not name it now for libellous reasons). However it produces a no of signals some of which I would find useful.

Check Intellisense definition here, and test it with the editor on a well know non-protected indicator.

For the developper, modifying the indicator like you asked may take 2 minutes, typing with gloves and one finger, so it should be interesting to know why he doesn't want to modify such a simple thing.

Out of curiosity, is Intellisense the only way to view public variables and functions in C#?
