can anyone tell me what im doing wrong with this , in my debugging i use the following (same parameters)

" EMAflat: " + EMA_Colors(m_EmaAngle1,m_EmaAngle2,slowAverage).EMAflat[0].ToString()
+ " ContainsValue: " + EMA_Colors(m_EmaAngle1,m_EmaAngle2,slowAverage).EMAflat.ContainsValue(0).ToString()

it prints

August 02, 2013 9:24:26 OnBarUpdate() - adxSetup[0]: 1 adxEntry[0]: 1 bBuySetup: True bBuyEntry: True bSellSetup: False bSellEntry: False EMAflat: 1.3224 ContainsValue: False

I can see that the bar has a value for EMAFlat but i cant explain how both conditions can be true at the same time ie. it has a value but ContainsValue says it doesnt. is the call to the indicator plot value not treated as a dataseries or am i missing something! (too many hours today)

thanks in advance

In case that

- no value has been affected to a DataSeries object for a specific bar
- or that you have reset the DataSeries for that bar

the DataSeries will still contain an object. Consider this object as a dummy or placeholder. Usually the dummy value is the close of the referenced bar.

The property "ContainsValue" holds the information, whether the object has been created by the user.

If "ContainsValue" returns the value "False", it simply means that the value stored in the DataSeries field is a dummy.

If you produce code it is your responsibility

-> to make sure that all all DataSeries fields that you want to access hold proper values
-> that you set those values in a proper way
