Indicator with variable Text on Chart

Hi,

I want to display the actual balance in a chart with indikator or signal.

The code is something like:

 
Code
TextIDsample = Text_New(Date,Time,0,"text");
But I want instead of the "text" a variable (my accountbalance).
If I write "initialcapital" than I see the word initialcapital in the chart.
If I write initialcapital without "" than I can't compile the code.

What to do?
Thank you very much!

off the top of my head, try
DrawTextFixed("text tag", " my balance = "+mybalance, TextPosition.BottomRight);

or
DrawTextFixed("text tag", "my balance = "+mybalance.ToString(),TextPosition.BottomRight);

Have you tried to find some TradeStation code by "TRO", "The Rumpled One", or had a look on Kreslik?

I think he has alot of samples and open TS code posted there.

HTH,

Kirk

I think your looking for this:

 
Code
                            
vars:

  
myvar(0);

myvar some formula;

Text_New(datetimepricetext(myvar)); 
You can also do something like:

 
Code
                            
Text_New(datetimepricetext("My var = " myvar:0:".")); 

:0:0 is formatting (padding) of zeros before/after decimal.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
