I'm writing a function that needs to use a value from a downloaded indicator.

In this case I'm multipling my band by the factor of Fisher transform which I downloaded.

result = kLower * QSFunctions.Fisher(Close, Length);

Problem is I cannot figure out how to call it. I tried TA.Fisher, cFunction.Fisher etc. I just have no idea and don't know where to find out.

I am doing this wrong?

You cannot reference it directly.
You must get its value by compiling a QS formula. Example:

VectorD val = cFunctions.CompileFormula("a = fisher(" + Close + ", " + Length + "").GetVectorDouble("a");
result = kLower * val;

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
