Quick COBC NinjaTrader Question

Some indicators should be exclusively used in CalculateOnBarClose = true setting, as

- the algorithm used may not be compatible with CalculateOnBarClose = false

- or the CPU load would be too high


A very brute way to achieve this would be to start OnBarUpDate() with the code snippet

 
Code
 
if (!CalculateOnBarClose) return;
and the indicator will display nothing with the false settings.


But is there anything more elegant, such as eliminating CalculateOnBarClose from the indicator dialogue settings?

You could force the issue in OnBarUpdate, thereby ignoring what the user selects.

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.

If I comment it out it will just be ignored but not compensate a false user setting.

Honestly, I don't undertstand this answer.

Will try that, if it works, it is a good solution.

NT users are by now already used that is not up to them to select the features, so nobody will complain about it.

Sure. If you are really kind, you could throw an Alert letting the user know you changed it and why.
