the Real-Time Market Scanner is a powerful feature within MC and in my opinion with only a couple of cosmetic changes this beast could really be unleashed.
With this in mind I created this topic, so other Scanner users might chime in with their suggestions for improvements.
Comparing TS’s Radarscreen to Multicharts’s Scanner, I am seeing a couple of things that can vastly improve the Scanner, with probably only minor changes. Having gotten feedback from several clients that stick to Radarscreen just because it allows to better setup and present the results, I am convinced that Multicharts could be better here.
Let me give you a real world example: It’s not uncommon to have several plots in a Scanner indicator, but not all the plots display a price value.
I am using this simple demo code:
Code: Select all
Plot6("Hello World", "Text");
When you add a new study to the Radarscreen, it's very convenient to change the location via the “Move Up” or “Move Down” buttoms:
The individual plots can all be setup differently, so you can conveniently present dates, time etc within one indicator. The display categories even have sub-categories to fine tune the outcome:
Decimal Spaces can be set for every plot individually and not for all plots the same and you can also setup individual text aligning for each cell:
Cell colors can be setup for the fore- and background for each cell individually:
This is how it can look in the Radarscreen:
