Custom Note on Market Scanner

Postby designer01 » 08 Oct 2012

Hi Is there a way to add a column to the RT Market Scanner window that shows a custom note I write myself on a symbol?

Hello designer01,

Yes that is possible. You need to create a new indicator with the code below and insert this study into your scanner window.

Code: Select all

plot1("your text here");

Thank you for your response... unfortunatelly I want to add a different note to each symbol. With the code above mentioned the same custom note gets added to all symbols in the column. Is there a fix for that...? Thanks

It will do whatever you write it to do:

Code: Select all

if symbolname="GOOG" then plot1("GOOG is here");
if symbolname="MSFT" then plot1("MSFT is here");

Thank you that works great... Is there a way to change the Background Color of the cell?
I tried:

Code: Select all

if symbolname="GOOG" then BGColor = green ;


...but is compiling with errors. Thanks again

Code: Select all

if symbolname="GOOG" then SetPlotBGColor (1,green) ;

Can I edit this custom note in Scanner, without opening the Script editor?

Hello Geonss,

Using this code you will be able to type in custom text from the study inputs window.

Code: Select all

    input:
    my_text("your text here");
    plot1(my_text);
