Please help me with a simple Show Me coding problem

Postby miracleworkertrading » 08 Sep 2010

Can some please show me a code snippet which allows me to use text in a show me indicator study?

I am a self-taught EL programmer, so I can do some things but don't know how to do others.

I can plot dots or crosses above below price bars to show when entry indications have been met, as a Show Me indicator, no problem.

However, if I have a number of different entry conditions I would like to show on a price chart, as a Show Me study, I would like to be able to plot '1', '1A', '2', '3', etc instead of using different colored dots. I will be plotting these above or below the price bar the same way you would do it with dots, instead of doing the same thing with dots.

Can someone please show me a piece of code which plots these? Once I see the structure of how this is done to plot text I will be on my way. Thanks in advance!
