Alerts Enhancement - doable ?

Postby syswizard » 19 Apr 2019

I use Alerts a lot..and that's the problem....they all look the same and distinguishing them clearly in rapidly moving markets (think E-Mini) becomes difficult....even with sounds.
I wonder how difficult it would be for MC Engineers to provide an extension for Alerts to be able to change:
1) background color
2) Font type, size, and color
3) Placement on screen

In this manner with these features certain Alerts would stand out from others.
Anyone think is a good idea ?

Hello syswizard,

Thanks for your suggestions. They were forwarded to the management and will be taken into consideration in the future.

I have also been looking for this enhancement. Would it also be possible to adjust the wording of the Alert as well?

Dude - the wording of the alert is already possible. That's not the issue. Making the alerts differentiated is exactly what I want.

Code: Select all

Alert(Text("Day of week is ", DayOfWeek(Date)));

Henry - I HAD a PM account, but your system admins removed my ID likely due to inactivity.
I suggest this setting be changed....to 1 YEAR. No activity after that period and then the account is removed.
Not before then.
Please establish a new PM id for me.....SYSWIZARD2 if you cannot re-use SYSWIZARD.
