Anyone know where I can find the list of color names available with MC.

Hello,

Apart from the colours listed in the table, there is one more colour - DarkYellow. This colour does not have a number, only the reserved word - DarkYellow.

Most important, though is that in MultiCharts you can use the RGB model to plot over 16 million colours.

Here are the details:

Returns the RGB color number that corresponds to the specified combination of red, green, and blue component color values; the number ranges from 0 to 16777215 and represents one of 16 M colors.

RGB (Red,Green,Blue)

Where: Red – a numerical value from 0 to 255, specifying the Red component of the RGB color
Green – a numerical value from 0 to 255, specifying the Green component of the RGB color
Blue – a numerical value from 0 to 255, specifying the Blue component of the RGB color

Example

Create an Orange color plot using the RGB color combination:

Plot1(Open);
SetPlotColor (1, RGB (224,160,32));

Regards.

You could try looking it up yourself.

go to: (remove the spaces)
htt ps : // www . TS.com/support/books/default.aspx

and D/L:
EasyLanguage® Functions & Reserved Words Reference (.pdf)

and turn to page 992.

I keep a copy handy in "My Documents" and put a shortcut to it in the "quick launch" area of my taskbar. It's quite the tome of all things EL.

Also, if you are ever curious; in MC click on "format study" and click on the color of one of your indicators and when the standard colors popup, click on "other". Now you can create any color you want and the RGB code for it is in the lower right hand corner. You can "add to custom colors" or just copy down the numbers to the Power Language code you are writing.

is it possible to set the transparency of the color? (e.g. 50%)

I want to draw a THICK trendline across the chart, but I don't want it to cover the price bars.

The alternative would be to put the trendline behind the price bars, but I don't think that can be done.

It would be great if MC can assign a number and/or Reserved Word to each of the colors on the Format Window Background color grid.

It beats fumbling with the RGB combinations.

How about my suggestion of assign a number and/or Reserved Word to each of the colors on the Format Window Background color grid?

Frankly this request is too specific. You can archive the same in the PL code by assigning variables with needed colors.
