Different symbol characters in MC?

Postby TonyB » 21 May 2011

I asked on Big Mike's forum, and received a reply for which I do not know the answers. If anyone can assist, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Does MC support symbols beyond what TS offers? Specifically, the aforementioned symbols (arrow up, arrow down, triangle up, triangle down, diamonds, and squares)?

You can choose different ASCII symbols in the regular version of MultiCharts.
Because MC DT is not programmable, therefore you cannot change the symbols.

TJ, I find myself understanding, but not completely, which is fine at this point, but might you have any input on the last post here?

Thank you.


Note:
Text objects can be programmed in the paid version of MultiCharts.


Text objects can be drawn with the statement TEXT_NEW

Through this command in your indicator, text can be placed anywhere on the chart: above a bar, below a bar, at the right top corner of the screen, etc.,
They can also be programmed to appear in any attributes: large, small, bold, italic, underlined, framed, etc., plus, in any font and in any color (both foreground and background) you like under the rainbow.
