draw a descriptive label for each row of dots in an indicato

Postby nuno-online » 28 Oct 2012

hello
I would like to draw a descriptive label for each row of dots in my indicator panel.
It is not an issue drawing the text to the right of the plot using DrawText but there is apparently no parameter to draw it to the left of the row (so that the label is always visible even if I scroll the price chart to the left).

Any good example out there or some sample code that could help me out?
Thanks!

Nuno

Look under the subsection for Arrow Text and Trendlines,
you should be able to find lots of example.

Thank you TJ

But all the examples under the subsection draw information in the chart but not in the indicator

Hello Nuno,

If you need to have the plot on the indicator series then you need to use the reserved words with _self:

Code: Select all
