Several Add-on Partners have requested additional type slots be made available becouse there are now more custom chart types than slots.

Here is my list.

MedianRenko Period.Type = Custom 0

PureLogic Period.Type = Custom 1

RangeNoGap Period.Type = Custom 2

PureLogic Period.Type = Custom 3

BetterRenko Period.Type = Custom 4

ChannelTrend Period.Type = Custom 5

SBSRenko Period.Type = Custom 6

MomBars Period.Type = Custom 7

WickedLineBreak Period.Type = Custom 8

TimeRangeAdaptive Period.Type = Custom 9



------------------------------------------------------------------


RenkoHybrid Period.Type = Final 0

PureLogic Period.Type = Final 1

WickedRenko Period.Type = Final 2

KaseBars Period.Type = Final 3

PriceChange Period.Type = Final 3

MonentumBars Period.Type = Final 4

I have already formally requested more slots so we might see this at a later date. Something else I discovered is instead of looking for Custom and Final numbers to determine what bar type a user has on the chart, try this:

if(Bars.BarsType.DisplayName.ToString() == "WickedRenko" || Bars.BarsType.DisplayName.ToString() == "Renko")
{
Do something;
}

Here we are checking for the standard NT Renko bars or the add on WickedRenko bars. Using this method means it doesn't matter what ID number WickedRenko is using or if it is Custom or Final. This does not help bar makers, that will have to wait for NinjaTrader. It does help us identify bar type though.

I like to use Bars.BarsType.DisplayName.Contains("Renko") to allow any kind of Renko named barstype.

I think it would be really cool if you guys could also post the type files here (or links to "official" posts/sites, if any). Is no thread that gather all of them in same place and this may be a nice start.

revising an old thread ... could we also designate whether the PeriodTypes in use are compiled or user-editable.

i believe most of the ones mentioned by @zacharydw00 in the first post are user-editable:
Custom0, Custom4, Custom8, Final2, Final4

and i think the PureLogik ones mentioned by @RJay are compiled (not user-editable):
Custom1, Custom3, Final1

hopefully we'll get some upgrades to custom bars with NT8 :-)

cheers,
-e

eman,

What exactly is the distinction between "compiled" and "user-editable."

I have been adding and subtracting custom bars like a machine over the past few days, and it's a tedious process for me. Here's what I do every time I update a custom bar:

1) Close NT.
2) Move the target file from the Custom/Type folder.
3) Open NT. Open an indicator and compile.
4) Close NT.
5) Open NT and check to see that the bar is gone and the chart is not printing with any goofy bar type. (Sometimes if I don't do this I find a chart will get "stuck." At first I kept thinking that there was a problem with my coding, but it turned out a lot of the time that for some reason the old custom bar type hadn't cleared out of the system, or whatever, so now I always make sure it's gone before I take the next steps).
6) Close NT.
7) Move the target file back to the Custom/Type folder.
8) Open NT and Compile.
9) Close NT
10) Open NT

If I try to cheat steps I have had problems, and it's too tedious to try to skip steps, find it doesn't work, and then have to do them all over again, so I just make a sandwich and get to openin' and closin'.

-RK

you can have a mix of open-source (user edit-able) and proprietary (compiled) custom bars, but you cannot change the PeriodType in a compiled (DLL) version.

eman,

Thanks - a lot of the language is new to me, so I often need clarification!

And it looks like I'll have to get used to my clunky approach...

best,
RK

Please add any and all compiled (.dll) and open-source bartypes, and any other information that is pertinent to these bartypes. The purpose of this thread is to identify and note conflicts between bartypes from different developers
Thanks guys, Zac

Hello,
Any idea which Custom/Final "RJay's RenkoHybrid" uses?

I want to Add() to different timeframes to my strategy but need the PeriodType.

Thanks,
Geodepe

Thank you. I downloaded it a while back and I appreciate your sharing it with us.
It is nice to have something to contribute to others. I hope to do so myself.
Right now the rooms I can add experience about are all on elite threads so I can't post yet as I do not have enough posts.
But I have had very good experience with CFRN and some with ACE Trades and will add what I know soon. - again thanks for helping.
