First off, WL8 is A LOT more responsive and overall faster than WL7!

Where are the community indicators located?

We’re going to put them in the WL8 Extensions Demo project on Github. That’s where they logically belong.

So these 4 that were in WL7 we have to make our own extension from github to use them with WL8?

We will provide a downloadable dll and link to it from the github page, so you won’t need to build the library yourself.

I should have it ready in a little while.

The DLL for the WL8ExtensionsDemo library, which is the new home of the "Swing" indicators, is now here:

https://github.com/LucidDion/WL8ExtensionDemos/

Note: the indicators will appear in a folder called WL8ExtensionsDemo, NOT Community.

In the GitHub site its says the following;

"An open-source class library for Wealth-Lab 8, containing Indicators, and an example custom extension with child window. You can download the DLL for this library and save it into your WL8 installation folder from this link:" I cant find such folder and don't know what to do with the dll

After you download it then put the dll file in your folder programfiles/quantacula/wealthlab8

Then restart wealthlab

Another handy way of opening the installation folder is right clicking the WL8 desktop icon and selecting “Open Containing Folder.”

CODE:

15: The type or namespace name 'HiLoLimit' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

The compiler is suggesting where the error is:
QUOTE:
(are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

If you download the source code and open Indicators/HiLoLimit.cs then it's clear that the namespace is WealthLab.Community and your script does not contain a using directive for that.

Eugene, can we add a sample Strategy to that Github page to avoid other users getting caught with this?

Done with that. Also I uploaded the binary to Github's Releases section:
