Custom Price Series Questions

Postby franky » 26 Nov 2012

1. If I set the Bar.State properties to none (value = -1) to a specific Bar, will it means that when I'll ask for Bars.Close[x] it will skip the Bar with state (-1) and gives me only the active Bars ?
2. What is the best way to create a custom Series of price Bars which can be reference the same way as with the CstudyControl.Bars ... (Bars.Close[x], Bars.High[x], ...)? Do I need to create a complete FunctionObject<T> ?

Hello Franky,

1) Bars.status is a read only property.
2) You need to insert a data series to the chart to reference it from the code.

Thanks Henry.
My questions was more related to generating a custom price series relative to another one. Basically what I would like to do is generating a custom Renko price series indicator which I could use as a trigger for a strategy. This custom Renko price series would have no Bar at some time. What would be the best C# Iimplementation to use for that ?
Many thanks

Hello Franky,

You can use IChartCustomDrawer to create a custom plot that will have the shape and color you want.
Here is an example how to plot candles with gradient colors in MC .Net using IChartCustomDrawer
