Need Crosshair Color

Postby mojotrader » 23 Nov 2008

I changed the background colors of my charts to reduce eye strain but now it is difficult to see the crosshair or the crosshair price/time labels.

As a first implementation suggestion, add a "Crosshair" tab to the Format Window dialog with two radio buttons: Auto & Manual. Auto would determine color based on chart background color, as MC does now. Manual would allow you to set crosshair color and crosshair price/time label color. In a subsequent release you could add crosshair line format/thickness, label background opacity and other options.

I agree.

It is high time MC add configurable cross-hair color.

My eyes are strained too.

I changed the background color to darkgray... and found immediate relief.

But the cross hair color forced me to select another background color.
