Shut down an indicator via code? is it possible

Postby arjfca » 21 Aug 2013

Hello

Is there a way to cancell all plotted info on a chart from the code. I would like to have a cleaner chart when I look at my chart using a narrow bar spacing.

I'm able to read the bar spacing using getappinfo(aiBarSpacing). I see that the value is modified whenever I use the icone on my bar to increase or decrease the spacing. But I did not succeed to cancel the already plotted info yet.

The only way that i found is by unselecting the indicator.

Martin

Code exemple:

Code: Select all

Barspacing = getappinfo(aiBarSpacing) ;
If barspacing <> Barspacing_ex then begin
Barspacing_ex = Barspacing;
Arrowstyle_show = 1;
Print ( barspacing, " ", Barspacing_ex);
end
else begin
Arrowstyle_show = arrowstyle;
end;
if barspacing >=1.3 then begin

right click on chart,

select Remove All Drawings.


if you want your drawings back,
use "Jump" to go back one bar,
then click on the "Terminate Playback" icon.
MultiCharts will redraw all objects.

I like your idea.

But you know me,... I like to automatise all steps...
It would be interesting if I was able to cancell all drawing whenever I sqeeze the chart.

A good evening to all

You sure can... if there is a will, there is a way.

Hello Martin,

Unfortunately there is no way to turn off an indicator via the code at the moment.
