Dot For VOL 5 *
Puts a dot on top of volume bar when your desired "High" volume criterion is met.
In past I had a horizontal line at my desired volume, but could not tell for sure until I checked the bar.
This way NT7 does the checking for you.

Hope this one is not considered to simple.

I am fairly new to programming and this indicator plots a Dot at the top of the volume bar or where the volume bar would be when the last bar exceeds a user selected volume in your indicator panel (default is 30,000). It can be used with or without VOL. (Best to load both in the same panel)
Also the Blue dot works best at size three, but that too is selectable (You don't even need to use the dot and select another plot style.)

Fairly simple code and easily changed. Works with any time frame that VOL works with; however VOL indicator is not totally necessary, but helps for visual display.

Also if you want to just unzip this indicator before importing it to NT7: contains three files:
DotForVol.cs This is a text file containing my code. If you rename it to DotForVol.txt you can use any editor to view the code.
DotForVol.dll Compiled code for NT7
Info Not sure how this file works, but sure there is a reason for it, as NT7 exporter put it in there.

This is my first version 5/28.2014
Second version 6/2/2014 (Added an offset to plot above volume bar and a default of 3 for dot size. All of which can be changed without recoding the indicator the offset default is 10,000 and shows in MISC and can also be changed.)

20 OCT 2014 Added sound option for indicator. Couldn't figure out quickly how to include while zipping with NT7 and will include .WAV file separately. Just copy the .wav file into your /sounds/ folder and it should work. Note: this is a work in progress for me. I have borrowed code from MACD Color, and will be working in the future to clean up my code. Also this time I zipped without creating the .dll files. I learned that doing it that way makes it so you can see my code. Before I thought I had done this... Who knew there were different .cs files with same name when you make an indicator depending on how it is compiled. Man I have a lot to learn. Well Uploading now as I have taken a short break today to finish this. Okay... Well didn't have time today to make this perfect Here is link to update in my journal where I uploaded the files indicator and wav file. I'll do my best to fix things up and get back to this later. Just don't have the time for perfection right now....
