Sorry if this has been answered somewhere else, I have been searching for an answer, but no luck.

How can I programatically get a list of instruments in the system? Something like:

Instrument[] fullInstrumentList = NinjaTrader.getInstruments();

Or perhaps somebody knows how to find an instrument based on a name? I will appreciate your help. Thanks

this is beyond unsupported and will probably break something, you've been warned!

foreach (Cbi.Instrument instrument in Cbi.Instrument.GetObjects())

Yep, thanks a lot.

If this is beyond unsupported then I don't know how to classify my Reflection-based parts of the code.
