indicator to email screen shot image

Hi guys,

I have an indicator that emails me when a paint bar occurs with entry prices and targets. I want to add to this the function of adding the screen shot of that specific chart.



is a standard function on the charts I suspect there is a code that can be added to my indicator for this.

any ideas?

I dont think there are any existing functions in NinjaScript to do this for you, but its fairly easy to do with some .NET classes in System.Drawing:

Rectangle - create a rectangle with the X/Y width / height of what you want to capture - you can use ChartControl.Width, height, and location (x/y point) to create a rectangle of the whole chart.

Bitmap - create a new bitmap the size of your rectangle with an appropriate pixel format.

Graphics - use an instance of this on your bitmap w/ Graphics.FromImage(). Then you can use CopyFromScreen() with your given rectangle to do the actual screenshot.

Then you can use your bitmaps instance Bitmap.Save with a desired file type like JPEG, to save it to a stream.

Once you have it saved, you'll have to email it. Unfortunately I dont know how to send a mail off the top of my head. I'm assuming System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient would make short work of this.
