Multiple Files backtest

I'm unsure how to backtest my C# strategy that has a main strategy file with subset .cs indicator files. Any direction would be appreciated.

Update Backtest








If we don't want to create different namespaces, it is enough to create a a new file where the indicator class is in the the algorithm namespace, for instance, namespace QuantConnect:

// Main.cs
namespace QuantConnect {
public class BasicTemplateAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm {
public override void Initialize {
var customIndicator = new CustomIndicator();
}

public override void OnData(Slice slice) {
// NOP
}
}
}
// CustomIndicator.cs
namespace QuantConnect {
public class CustomIndicator: TradeBarIndicator {
// IsReady, ComputeNextValue, etc
}
}

An extra information:
We can have a class in several files, using partial class. For example, let's have Initialize and OnData in different files:

// Initialize.cs
namespace QuantConnect {
public partial class BasicTemplateAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm {
public override void Initialize {
var customIndicator = new CustomIndicator();
}
}
}
// OnData.cs
namespace QuantConnect {
public partial class BasicTemplateAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm {
public override void OnData(Slice slice) {
// NOP
}
}
}
