Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

@Josh Thanks for this information. Looks like this is explaining the behavior. But pls. read my summary in #13, where this behavior is different depending on one indicator setting. I did quite a lot of investigation what MC is doing until #13 then I was told it's known and likely solved in 8.1. Now ...

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

why do you need this? intrabarpersist _txtId (-1), intrabarpersist for persisting until next indicator processing. The -1 was a try but will be overwritten by MC with next bar. Hence this check can be used within a bar but not later. Following the code again with my _TxtExist. Running the code you ...

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

It seems that it wasn't possible to use the function as expected but late I checked the existence of the underlying txt object itself. I did not know that there is such kind of wrong 'garbarge collecting'. Meaning the handling of MC with txt objects is not as it should be. This is clarification for ...

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

Regarding the probs (see #8) with Text_Exist I now understand. From my point of view it's not working because the used functions Text_GetFirst(3) is not delivering a newly created text object (at least not in the same bar, only after the bar is closed). Perhaps this is a forced limitation but within...

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

Changing the line

if _txtId < 0 then
into
if Text_Exist(_txtId) = false then

will do on the chart what I am expecting from the indicator, but here the lost/disposed txt object will be created again and again instead of just changing the location.

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

What else can I write more? The text should be changed by placing on the chart on the current place according to AIRightDispDateTime and Last-Price to be used as X and Y-Ordinates. Can You run this indicator and see that the object is getting disposed?

Re: Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

TJ, I can't give You an answer to this. I've tried some things, thought it would be working but was not. Following a shortened piece of indicator code showing a text with Last at the current price. To get it running You won't need _GetIntervalType , any string will be fine. For the indicator Update ...

Text_SetLocation not for vertical location change

While re-arranging the marketdepth indicator I came to some un-easy things while dealing with text strings. If I want to put a simple text I can create a new text object with text_new_s and giving as paramater a place for X and Y (datetime and price). The last time MC often has problems with not eno...

Re: Problems with loading Custum Future [SOLVED]

For the session template I had 'Use Symbol Dictionary Sessions' showing me time like 8:30 - 15:15. Today I changed this to 0 - 23:59 because this was likely to create a second daily candle for the current day at 3pm everyday. Changing the session time was no good idea at all. Now MC is showing cand...
