Font Parameters for Text in TS/EL

Sorry for the noob question. I'm just getting started with TS/EL.

I'm adding text to a chart in an indicator in tradestation like so:

value1 = text_new(d,t,close, "Test");

Is it possible to change the font parameters like type of font, font size, bold, italics, etc?

Thanks,
-C

Yes, they are manipulated by other commands.

Hold the id Text_New in a variable:

 
Code
                            
mytext Text_New(datetimepricetext(" Close was "C)); 

Then manipulate that later..

 
Code
                            
// change string

Text_SetString(mytexttext("new string"));

// change location
Text_SetLocation(mytextnew_datenew_time);

// change font size
Text_SetSize(mytext14);

// change border
Text_SetBorder(mytexttrue);

// change bg color
Text_SetBGColor(mytextred);

// change fg color
Text_SetColor(mytextwhite);

// change style
Text_SetStyle(mytext12); 
I just pulled from a script. These are for MultiCharts, TradeStation may not be exactly the same. Also, remember to use Text_New_s where possible to allow for second timestamps (more precise).

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

hmmm...some of these commands are not supported in TS 8.8. Oh well.

Thanks anyways,
