Unfortunately, there is little documentation available on how to do this. I was able to review several programs written by other developers in order to write the indicators I wanted. While these programs are poorly documented, the code does go beyond what Ninja supports and exposes some of the internal workings of the Ninja package. Fortunately, you can use the Microsoft Visual Studio to attach to the DLL and step thru the code using the debugger. - I continue to do work on the development of C# web pages.
