Candlestick charts: Please improve paintbar function!

Postby Lutz » 31 Mar 2009

Hello,

I often work with painted candlestick charts and would like to see an improvement for the paint bar function for candles. Currently up and down candles cannot be distinguished when painted, may be you can have a look at at a TS8 chart with painted candles (please see attached screenshot).

I also noticed some kind of disharmony in candlestick charts (the relationship between candles and the space between them is not balanced, see also attached screenshot). For me as a discretionary trader a style like in TS8 would be more pleasant and useful.

I know this issues are minor ones, but may be its worth to look at them.

Thanks!

Lutz

Please try to use Hollow CandleSticks. It works properly on our end.

Hello,

may be there is a misunderstanding: The Hollow Candlestick style itself works perfectly.

The described 'phenomenum' occurs when I apply a study containing the PlotPaintBar statement (I have attached a sample study). In this case a vertical colored bar ist drawn through the candle like in the old TS2000i. In TS8 they paint the candles correctly.

I thought there are more traders which would like to see this improvement, if I am the only one, I can (and have to) live without it.

Hi Lutz,
Yes I misunderstood you.
We will improve it.
Meanwhile please use the following statement to avoid the mentioned issue.


PlotPaintBar(High, Low, Open, Close, "xxx", Bearish);

Hi Andrew!

Now it works perfectly, I did not know the correct command (just imported the study from TS)! Thanks a lot!!!
