    Thanks for the info Christ.

    Is there a Ninja Trader course that teaches about NinjaScript and Drawing tools? Also what is the custom Build Event?
    Is there a description of the interfaces to Ninja Trader that the drawing tools use? Pardon if I am not using the correct terms.

    Hello, thanks for writing in. I attached a stripped-down version of the Line drawing tool for reference. There is no tutorial on this, so it will just take study of the code to see how it works. In the Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom folder there is a Visual Studio project file that has a custom build event that will let you develop from Visual Studio.

    Kind regards,

  • Help / pointers on how to modify existing drawing tool in NT8

    Hi,

    I want to modify an existing drawing tool to add some functions - for example the ellipse tool allows drawing an ellipse with the axes aligned to the x, or y axis only and not sloping. I would like to modify the ellipse tool to be able to pick three points and draw an ellipse passing through those points. There are other similar modifications I would like to do to some of the other drawing tools.

    Can you please point me to a tutorial on writing or modifying drawing tools to work with NT8, and on how to debug these drawing tools. I have some experience with C language but new to C#.

    is there IDE like Visual Studio which can be used to write / modify and debug code along with the Ninja Trader 8 platform.

    TIA
