MultiCharts question about PLOT attributes.

I'm just wondering if someone could please let me know how to display a TEXT or LABEL (which is) associated to a PLOT line to be displayed on the left side of the PLOT. Thx ,

Note - I'm not using .NET and I don't want to use TEXT_NEW.

The only way to do so is to create a new text plot using the TEXT_NEW keyword. I am not aware of any other way.

Thx so much for your feedback. I used TEXT_New_Self to display the associated label at the end of a PLOT, (and also used TEXT_DELETE or TEXT_SETLOCATION in order to update its location due to market movement). However, it looks like I'm out of luck since neither one is functioning properly - the text get displayed randomly (at its correct location, but it doesn't show up / get displayed as always):

Plot65(PPYDayHigh930,"Yesterday High",Default,Default,Default);
Text_delete(PPYDayHigh930Txt);
Text_SetLocation(PPYDayHigh930Txt , Date, Time, PPYDayHigh930);
PPYDayHigh930Txt = Text_New_self(Date, Time, PPYDayHigh930, " Y High = "+TEXT(PPYDayHigh930));
Text_SetStyle(PPYDayHigh930Txt , PPHorizLabelOffset, PPVertiLabelOffset);
Text_SetColor(PPYDayHigh930Txt , getplotcolor(65));
Text_SetSize (PPYDayHigh930Txt , PPFontSize );
Text_SetAttribute(PPYDayHigh930Txt , 1, PPBoldText );

Text_SetColor(PPYDayHigh930Txt , getplotcolor(65));
Text_SetSize (PPYDayHigh930Txt , PPFontSize );
Text_SetAttribute(PPYDayHigh930Txt , 1, PPBoldText );

The script is calculated on every tick.

1. To plot the text on every tick, the following attribute should be added. [RecoverDrawings=true]

2. Using Text_SetLocation right after Text_delete is not necessary, as the text is already deleted.

3. The script should be rewritten to do want you want it to do: you should create drawing once and then move it to the needed location at every calculation. There is no need to use the delete function at all.

Thanks,
Matt

You can reach the Multichart team because they are very competent or change to a broker that actually knows your platform.
