Indicator over Indicator

Hello, i think i saw once some code with Indicators under indicators. Ex: var x = EMA(SMA(Length))
Can anyone give me some link with an example on this ?
Thank you

I think you're looking for the 'Of' extension methods. This allows you to define an indicator that accepts input from another indicator. You could read it as the 'EMA of the SMA'. Here's some code:// the "SPY" is a symbol and 14 is the period
var sma = SMA("SPY", 14);
// the "EmaOfSma" is a name for our indicator, and the 5 is the period
var emaOfSma = new ExponentialMovingAverage("EmaOfSma", 5).Of(sma);

On the first line we declare an SMA indicator which will receive it's data from the bars of the same resolution as we registered SPY when we called AddSecurity. The second line creates a new ExponentialMovingAverage indicator which will receive it's data from the the output of the 'sma' indicator. You can keep combing indicators with the 'Of' extension to produce complex indicators!
