I hope the selection TL_New included Text_New in this Poll

Add ability to plot text x number of bars back. Text_New uses BarDate, BarTime which makes it difficult to use on tick and volume charts.

Hi Geoff and Jerry,

I agree and second your suggestion.

Anyone that has done any programming for intra-day studies and indicators has had to deal with the outmoded way that TS deals with bars. It presumes that EVERYONE uses time based charts and that EVERYONE uses time intervals longer than 59 seconds. I have always wished that all trend lines, text, etc was barnumber based. Even now, I always use time_s just because of this, but it would be so much better if I could use barnumber.
Thank Goodness for Multicharts, but I think we can still do better by instituting barnumber based TL and Text.

IMO, all the I_ functions are critical must-haves.

A very large percentage of 3rd party products for TS use these functions.

Not having them available means that the equivalent product for MC either is a crippled version, or is simply not released at all because the developer doesn't want to release a half-baked implementation.

Please give a high priority to building the I_ functions into MC.

Andrew,

Since the strategies are getting always more complex, could be possible to add to PowerLanguage the capability to use "Macros" or "Inline" functions inside a signal to embeed Buy/Sell stetements ?

Regards,
Danilo

Hi MC_Prog,

You are absolutely right and this feature has been assigned high priority. The thing is that we already have a number of high priority projects going on. As soon as they are implemented we'll start working on I_functions. June - July is a rough estimate.

Regards.

Hi Danilo,

It'll be done in future MC versions.

Currently with powerlanguage we can only "Buy next bar at market",
i.e when a tick is processed by MC and the strategy determines that a buy condition is satisfied, the order will only be executed when the NEXT TICK enters MC.
When really, what the user wants is to buy immediately ... this delay is unnecessary.
