Different price input for BuiltIn-Function

Postby PK1 » 19 Mar 2014

While evaluating .Net (actually I wanted to change from MC to MC.Net) several times I came upon the problem of the need for different input to an indicator (see example below). Thats a big disadvantage of the .Net-Version over PL-Version. Is there any kind of workaround doing this Indicator over Indicator - Thing in my code?

Code: Select all

// -- MC --
rsiBase = (Close of data1) * factor;
rsi = RSI(rsiBase, 18);

// -- MC.Net --
private Function.RSI m_rsi;
m_rsi.price = Bars.Close * factor; // doesn't work due to type incompatibilities
As far as I've heard Indicator over Indicator won't be possible in MC.Net 9.

Hello PK1,

Here is the proper code:

Code: Select all

m_rsi.price = new Lambda<double>(_barsBack => Bars.Close[_barsBack] * factor);
Is there any kind of workaround doing this Indicator over Indicator - Thing in my code?

Since MultiCharts .NET 8.8 objects of one study are accessible from the other one. You can find code examples here and here.

I guess that should do it! Thank You, Henry!
