CandleSettingType Enumeration

Sorry for the newbie question.

How do I use CandleSettingType Enumeration? (See the link to Lean):

http://www.quantconnect.com/lean/docs#topic7489.html

Plus, is there a way to change those default paramaters?

@Boris,
The CandleSettingType enum is used internally by the CandlestickPattern indicators,
global default settings are defined here:
https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean/blob/master/Indicators/CandlestickPatterns/CandleSettings.cs#L28

They can be changed at runtime by calling the CandleSettings.Set method in the algorithm Initialize method, before creating the pattern indicators, for example:

CandleSettings.Set(CandleSettingType.BodyLong, new CandleSetting(CandleRangeType.RealBody, 20, 1));

Please keep in mind that a setting change with the line above is global and will be applied to all candlestick patterns used in the algorithm.

To better understand how these settings are used, I suggest to read the source code for the patterns:
https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean/tree/master/Indicators/CandlestickPatterns
especially the base class:
