Is there a way to have a trend line flashing

Postby arjfca » 03 Oct 2014

Hello

Friday afternoon fun task :)

Is there a way to have a trend line flashing. Momentary on / off.

Purpose: I want to display the low and high for a given period of the day, but I don't want to visually mix these trend line with others I may have on charts

Not as a native feature.


I make plots/drawings flashing by changing colors and/or thickness.

e.g.

Code: Select all

if CLOSE = INSIDEBID then
plot.thick
else
plot.thin;

Have you tried to plot that high/low on the far right (extending from the last bar to the right)? This way would be away from other lines you may have on the chart

As I discovered myself today, you can have an indicator that you turn on & off from the status line and have it retain its values whilst it is off by using global variables to store the settings.

Using that workaround you can build an indicator to draw those high and low trendlines and then click it on and off to manually "flash" when you just want to quickly see where those lines are.

Not quite what you want but hope it is off some use.
