Help with creating a strategy from custom indicator

I would like to program a strategy to trigger longs and shorts when the the current bar crosses the entry line on the ABC portion of the PriceActionSwingPro indicator. I have never written a strategy that refers to custom indicators so I want to know what needs to be put in the "using declarations" region, the "variables" region, etc. As far as the specific "if, thens" of the strategy i can figure out myself, but the aforementioned things are the things i need help with. I have seen this page of the PAS discussion but it didnt help me much (https://futures.io/ninjatrader/1272-priceactionswing-discussion-60.html)

Can anyone help me? It would be a huge help and end a lot of frustrations.

You don't need to put anything into the using declarations.

- If you have created a custom indicator, for example let's call it MyCustomIndicator
- Then in your strategy, as an example, you would just reference it like the code below:

if (Close[0] > MyCustomIndicator(yourParameterGoHere)[0])
// Do something here
