Editing an existing IRectangle

hey guys,

is there a possibility to edit an existing IRectangle Object on a chart?
i tried something like this without any success:

 
Code
foreach(IDrawObject o in DrawObjects)
{
    if(o.DrawType == DrawType.Rectangle)
    {
        IRectangle rec = (IRectangle)o;
        
        if(rec.EndTime < Time[0])
        {
            rec.EndTime = Time[0];
        }
    }
}
the idea is to create a little helper indicator which automatically expands my drawn support / resistance areas.

thank you and cheers,
mike

hey cory,

thank you for your reply but i cant find any reference in that thread.
the problem is, that if i draw a rectangle for a support or resistance area by using the drawing tools and then try to edit that rectangle in ninjascript, i am able to get the values but i cant edit the object itself.

if i delete the existing object and replace it with a new one created by the indicator, it becomes a drawobject of the indicator and i cant just delete it by hand.

any ideas?

You might trying mentioning @cory

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.

If you set AllowRemovalOfDrawObjects to true in the Initialize method, you will be able to manually delete the draw objects.
