Using the reserved word “TL_New”

Postby ~Zola~ » 20 May 2019

Code: Select all

Variables: TLID(-1),
TxtID(-1);

once
begin
TLID = TL_New(Date[10], Time[10], Close, Date, Time, Close);
TL_SetColor(TLID, red);
TL_SetSize(TLID, 2);
TL_SetStyle(TLID, 2);

TxtID = Text_New(Date, Time, Close, "Hello World!");
end;
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have created an indicator using "TL_New" as the above statement. when I insert the study in MC10, I expect the code line and text string that should be created on the chart, however nothing happen. Is that I have set the wrong "Properties"?

For the details, please refer to https://www.abctradinggroup.com/easylan ... rendlines/

I have tried the "Bar Chart" and "Hollow Candlestick Chart" with 1 minute or 1 day resolution.

Hi ~Zola~,

can you post a screenshot of the chart with the study applied, as this might help us in understanding the cause.

ABC

Try this

Code: Select all

Variables: TLID(-1),
TxtID(-1);

TLID = TL_New(Date[10], Time[10], Close, Date, Time, Close);
TL_SetColor(TLID, red);
TL_SetSize(TLID, 4);
TL_SetStyle(TLID, 2);

TxtID = Text_New(Date, Time, Close, "Hello World!");
Text_SetStyle(TxtID, 0, 2);

ps. ABC's sample code is for offline educational use only.

You should create the chart first, then apply the code.

It will not appear on a real-time chart that has previously been saved in a workspace.

~Zola~,

the code is designed to create the drawings only once when the study gets executed i.e. it will apply them on the first bar after your max bars back settings. Having said that you should be able to find the drawings close to the start of your chart.

You'll find it if you scroll all the way to the Left side of your chart. (earliest date).
It's very small but the text size can be made larger very easily.
See the

Many thanks for your reply, it is okay now. I have used the data over 30 years, that is the reason I cannot find the indicator on the screen.
