hi, i am using an indicator which i believe came with Ninja7...
i am using the bearish engulfing and bullish engulfing from indicator ... when true the bearish engulfing colors the bar Black... while the bullish engulfing is true it colors the bar white or transparent. I am unable to change the color that the bar changes to when the pattern occurs.
if i go to the indicator properties under plots, i can see where i can change the color, but doing so in the properties doesnt change the color of the bar on the chart ?

is anyone familiar with this indicator, is there another way to change the bar color that i am not seeing.... ? or is the coding incorrect for this version of ninja..

thanks,,

yes, did you look at your ninja and see if you have an indicator named candlestick patterns? that is the name. it has about 25 different patterns available..

yes i have an indicator named candlestick patterns, but it didnīt color any bars. It displays only the name of the corresponding pattern.

No, i have no favorite candle pattern and donīt use this indicator. I look for narrow body candles with high volume for making my trade decisions.

No, that indicator is set up to show all the candle patterns on the chart. i dont want that. i am able to copy and save the original code of the indicator into an unlocked template. but when i compile it. i get this error. anyone know how to correct this code error ?

i attached the file, hope it can be seen.

Hi @traderTX,

You only have to change the name of the public enum "ChartPattern" in line 856. This is because ChartPattern are already being used in the NT standard indicator ChartPattern and therefor, you get the compile error.
Just rename it to e.g. ChartPattern2 for your own indicator and it should work.

Hope this helps.
