Multicharts.Net and Footprint charts

Hi,

I am using Multicharts.NET SE and I would like to know if is possible to improve the footprint (Volume Delta) charts, via indicator programing in PowerLanguage.

The way of showing data in those charts, is very confusing and unreliable. I would like to do something like the following:

The bar is like this:

230x540
620x10
720x980
5x36

This is an example. What I would like to have is: if number at the right is at least three times number at the left in the row below put it in green. If not, leave it in black (foreground color of the font)

If the left number is at least three times the number of the right in the above row, print it in red.

For this to work, we should configure the style of the chart to make the background always white.

So in the above example, we woulf have 230 in black, 540 in black, 620 in black, 10 in black, 720 in red, 980 in green, 5 in black and 36 in black.

Is it possible? Any approach to do this?

Thanks in advance.

fjgaspar,

yes, this would be doable with a custom indicator. You can access the data via the Volume Profile collection and then draw the outcome via GDI. It's definitely doable, but will require some advanced coding.

Thanks for the answer

Could you then put me in the way to do it? The documentation of Powerlanguage is quite insuficient, specially with the GDI part.

Not need the whole code, just some guidance.

These are indicators build in Multicharts.NET. They are called _Market_Depth_on_Chart_ and _Market_Depth_on_Chart_2_.
