Re: G++ Exe errors, again and again

Just for the record, I've had exactly this issue too. Although in my case I re-installed and mine has been fine since. I'd guess this was maybe 5-6 weeks ago. I assumed it was a Windows Update that broke it as I'd done nothing else on the PC. In my case I did an uninstall THEN an install (rather tha...

Re: Controlling Decimal Places on Indicator Window [SOLVED]

Just to clarify, I want to place it on its *own* subchart by default but with the same d.p. as the symbol. However setting the plot value to match the symbol's price scale places the indicator on the main price chart. Perhaps you could add an option to the Indicator Properties window in PowerLanguag...

Re: Controlling Decimal Places on Indicator Window [SOLVED]

Thanks Henry, that works but by default it then puts the indicator on the price chart rather than in a subchart. I'm sure I've read somewhere recently that I can specify in EL where to place the indicator (top/bottom/subchart x) etc. I've looked but I can't find it again! sigh. Do you know the comma...

Controlling Decimal Places on Indicator Window [SOLVED]

On the status line of an indicator, I want the code to define how many decimal places are shown. Its fine if it affects the scale on the Y axis too. I can figure out the number of decimal places needed within the code. I can't see how to then tell MC to use that number in the window. I can set this ...

Number of Decimal Places from Instrument [SOLVED]

Is there a way to get the number of decimal places used by an instrument.
e.g. The ES would be 2, for GBP/USD it would be 4 etc.

Any suggestions?

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 BETA 1

The indicator uses the line: External: "C:\XYZ\abc.dll", int, "XYZ", IEasyLanguageObject; It compiles ok but when applied to a chart I get the error: Message: Error in study "XYZ" : : Can't find dll "c:\xyz\abc.dll". Have you copied/pasted that .dll from Multicharts 32 bit folder into Multicharts 6...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 BETA 1

Just installed MC 8.0 Beta 1 64 bit on Win 7 64 bit, fully patched. I have an indicator that calls an external dll but even though the dll exists in the right place, its days it can't find it. This indicator works fine in all versions up to and including 7.4. The indicator uses the line: External: "...

Re: Printing Arrows & Text accurately.

That's close enough, thanks for the quick reply TJ. I do wish there was a pdf file I could print into some kind of reference manual that I could literally thumb through. Help files are great when you have some idea of what you're looking for but if you just want to browse, a paper copy is easier to ...

Printing Arrows & Text accurately.

I'm using the following command to draw an arrow: Arw_New(Date,Time,H+1,True) This draws a down arrow at 'date' and 'time'. All works well. However, 'time' is only accurate to 1 minute, so if the bars are of less than a minute (e.g. fast printing tick charts), the arrow appears at the beginning of t...

Re: MultiCharts 7.2 Beta

Elipse Bug To recreate: Setup a new chart as follows: grey backgound blue OHLC bars fast tick chart (just so it prints bars quickly). Draw an elipse. Bug: As the next bar prints, it draws a black reverse L shape which disappears as the chart rescales but re-appears as the next bar prints. I don't r...

Re: CQG data feed

Sorry to resurect a (very) old thread. It appears MC (v6.1) still doesn't support CQG data. Is there a plan yet to implement it? If not, is it just not a priority or is there a commercial or technical reason? With CQG being the gold standard for data and MC being the best charting package it seems a...

+1 for Global Draw.

Also, it would be nice to be able to change the thickness of the dashed lines as well as the solid ones.
