[Question] How to show text string inside the Hint box?

Postby 2haerim » 10 Aug 2009

Plot1(1, "Hello");
Plot2("It's me!", "Hello");

The first one is shown inside the hint box as follows:

Hello=1

However the second one shows nothing.

Is there any way to display my own text string inside the hint box?


thx

I don't know if this is what you are looking for...

Commentary is coming in a future version,
at the mean time, you can check out this work-around:

The Candle Pattern indicator has

Commentary(message);

at the end of the script.

However, it does not show nothing on MultiCharts.

Can anyone make the "Hello" displayed with Commentary to show it is working with MultiCharts?

Commentary("Hello");


Thx.

Commentary is not supported yet.

It is promised tho.



p.s. the candle indicator is a conversion from TS, that's why the commentary code is still in there.
The commentary keyword will not generate an error message, nor do anything at the moment.
