Exporting the indicator is how you create a zip from a cs file, if that is your question.

If you are importing a cs file, read here:

Mike,
It is not a .cs file, it is a html file. When I zip it, and download into Ninja 7, it says that there are no files.

what is this file specifically? Is it a template or workspace?

If it's a template copy the xml file to ...\My Documents\NinjaTrader 7\templates\Chart
If it's a workspace copy it to ...\My Documents\NinjaTrader 7\workspaces

If it is .html then you've done something wrong, there is no html stuff for Ninja. You need to be more specific with what you are doing, where you got the file, what the file is, etc so people can help.

For example, I try to download the first ADXVMA on the Elite board, and it only shows a html file on my desktop. The file is empty when I try to load in Ninja 7. I have worked with Ninja 6.5 and 7 for a long time, but I have never had this problem before.
Thanks for your help. I almost feel foolish asking, but I am at my wits end.

I think u make something wrong when you download indicators, it seems u save the page, then u have an html file, i think there something u have to check on your browser, try with right mouse click on indicator name and then save as...

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

In my case I found that right-clicking on the chart will download the indicator. Right-clicking on the indicator name will try to save an HTML file in IE7.

Luke is right, the error is coming from how you are saving the file. It should all be automatic, just click on the filename of the indicator and it will save. But maybe you have a really old browser, or there is some other software getting in the way. So you can try like Luke says and right-click and hit save as on the link, but this can actually cause more problems because you may be clicking the wrong link.

I would 1) upgrade to the newest version of the browser you are using (hopefully not Internet Explorer), and then 2) if you still have problems take a screen shot and show us where you are clicking.

You are talking about the downloads section right?

Did you try just regular left-clicking on the download button next to the name of the indicator?

Thanks DDNut. You were absolutely correct. Downloading from the "chart picture" is the only way to do it.
Thanks again to all. Problem is solved!

Interesting, what version of IE are you using? I just tested it in IE8 and it works as expected, left clicking the down arrow icon will download the zip indicator.

Hi Micdup

Are you on ie9 beta? I managed to replicate the issue in ie9 beta?

I know it's solved it's just worth noting for the forum.

Adam

You have to enjoy it.

You are correct, Mike. I did not notice the download button in my haste.
I was clicking on the text hyperlink to the left, which just opens a new html page for that indicator.

The confusion stems from the pop-up that says 'left-click to open/right-click to save' when you hover the mouse over the hyperlink.

Clicking on the download button or the chart both work with IE7. Once you know what to do, the solution is obvious. Big down arrow - duh!
