i have built a indicator which displays the time price volume info on the chart itself when the user clicks on the chart. other data series can also be added. can be a good replacement of the NT's data box.

works fine as long as bar space is more than 8.

cheers

He did you know that in NT7B17 you can click your middle mouse button on a price bar and it will also give you the info about OHLC etc.

Thanks for the custom version, shows a good way to do it for other purposes

Hi bukkan,

Mike has asked me to Moderate Downloads & Indicators. He would like to put all finalized versions of indicators, templates, workspaces & educational material posted in threads in the download section, if still relevant and/or not beta. If it is beta then just leave it here if you are still actively working on it.

If this is a final version that you posted would you mind posting it in downloads? Then add a link to this thread to bring everyone back here? Or let me know and I will initiate this process and give you ownership and edit privileges of this indicator in Downloads.

This will really help the efficiency of searching indicators. As well as notify folks when an updated version has been posted in a place where they can be tracked to minimize overlap and multiple postings.

We are in the process of completely revamping the downloads section as well as beta testing a Code Repository, BMCodex, being overseen by Sam028.

Please let me know if I can be of any help.

Thanks,

Andy

does any one have an idea of how one could access databox variables that are being updated by closed code indicators? trying to backtest something that is manually executed, yet keeps historical signals on the chart. any ideas?

Plot values are displayed in the nt native databox. even if the indicator is closed, the plotseries should be exposed/accessible and you could code the same into a strategy and backtest the same.

I use some BWT indicators of Blue Wave. I would like to use some data of these indicators in a simple strategy wizard. As the BWT is commercial, the values are not accessible in the strategy wizard. But the values are displayed in the data box of Ninja 7.

Question: How can I access from the strategy wizard values being displayed in the data box in Ninja 7? Perhaps a separate strategy exists which can accomplish the task of making the displayed values of the data box available in the strategy wizard and can be used within the strategy wizard?

BUKKAN -

I had a problem with the indicator -- for some reason it is not putting the correct Open, High, Low and Close numbers on the toolbar... :O


Did Ninja change something or make some kind of update that would mess it up?

I went into the code and just changed one thing... the text of the words - I changed it to O, H , L , C only... so that only the those first letters appear ... thats it.. would that change the code completely?

~THANKS

The indicator works but only if the Bar Spacing is greater than 8... Which on my computer is way too large. It's also not robust because if you change the bar spacing without realising you're getting duff info but there's no way of knowing. Is there any way around this?
