how best to place an indicator on a strategy analyzer chart

at present the only was i know how to place an indicator on a strategy analyzer graph is by manually clicking on the graph and selecting it from an indicator dropdown list.

i am hoping that a simple few lines of code in a strategy will do the job automatically [ie] apply indicators to the graph. in its simplest form the task might be achieved by a line of code such as "LoadIndicator(indicator name)". I have not yet been able to find such a method of applying an indicator.

if such a feature is not available i will have to hire programming assistance.

If you have a look at the sample strategy SampleMACrossOver that comes with NinjaTrader, you will notice that in the Initialize() section there are two lines

 
Code
Add(SMA(Fast));
Add(SMA(Slow));


This is all that is required to add the plots to your strategy automatically.

adding SMA indicator worked but more complicated one doesn't

for practice I added the following line of code to my strategy and it worked.
Add(SMA(14));

then for more practice I tried
Add(HeikenAshi);
and got a bunch of errors.

please advise me regarding what I should do next [e.g.] links to study material, study the heikenashi code to maybe figure out what to do, etc.

Thanks,
Joe Miller

If you get errors, you need to post the strategy and the errors, and if you are lucky someone will look at it and find out the problem.
