Hello

A Text box is manually installed over a chart. Is there a way to find using PowerLanguage. witch bar is attached with the Text box?

Hi Martin,

Try Text_getactive and Text_GetBarNumber.

Code: Select all


print(" bar#=", text_getbarnumber(text_getactive()));
cheers,

Hello
Meecc

Thanks for your suggestion. I'm already using the search arrow and center my chart around it.
This function is called using a click over a given position on my charts.

Now, I want to use it for Text (number). I just did not found a function to return the position of a text box over a chart

Here is a daily chart that I marked the reversal
Now, I want to scall down to 15 min and study how was done the reversal.

The value to search (number in string) will be in a Global Variable set by Excel. MC to read the string value and search for it on the chart. All I need for now is a function to look for the position of a text box containing a given value.

Hello Martin,

Have a try on the following code pattern:

Text_GetFirst(7);

while (TextID <> -2)
Text_GetString(TextID);
Text_GetBarNumber(TextID);
Text_GetNext(TextID,7);


Return to “MultiCharts”
