Flag trendlines/drawings as not editable

Postby cyberdad » 08 Apr 2011

Is there a way to make a code generated trendline/drawing NOT editable by the user?

I'm not sure what you mean by "not editable", but you can use the "plot" command to draw lines on the chart at particular levels.

I mean a trendline that is drawn on the chart using tl_new etc but it has no nodes for resizing/repositioning.
This is useful because when a lot of trendlines are drawn (for example the segments of a zigzag), the user can easily select a trendline node by accident (instead of, say, a fibonacci tool node that is placed really close) and if snap mode is enabled, the line automatically changes position.
As a matter of fact, it happens all the time. Not a big deal, an inconvenience nonetheless.
Locking user interactivity with drawings/lines is useful in many cases.
From your response I understand that at this time there is no such feature. Anyway, you may consider it. Thank you.
