force decimal price marker display different than ticksize

Good evening,

On y axis, price markers of indicators are rounded automatically to the ticksize of instrument.

I'd like to get more decimals to show than what I have now.

Can I force more decimals for display on y axis to get more accurate information ? via NinjaScript coding

This is possible by overriding FormatPriceMarker. Just add this to your indicator code:

 
Code
public override string FormatPriceMarker (double price)
{
              string priceMarker = "";
              .....   // calculate string from price here
              return priceMarker;
}

You could try something like this:

 
Code
public override string FormatPriceMarker(double price)
{
   string nothing = "";
   return nothing;
}


Or you can simply add one line in the Initialize Section of the indicator, such as

 
Code
PaintPriceMarkers = false;

Speaking of initializing, is there a list somewhere of the common initialize statements one might use somewhere? Such as the CalculateonBarClose, overlay, MaximumBarsLookBack etc.....
