Change order of drawing of 2 objects

I have an indicator that draws a plot and a series of rectangles. Right now the plot is being drawn behind the rectangles. How can I change the order so that the plot is drawn over the rectangle?

If I remember right, add ZOrder = x to the OnStartUp() section. For 'x' I cannot remember how it works, either higher or lower value takes precedence. So try something like ZOrder = -1.

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)

Thanks for the reply. The issue I have is that I need to be able to set the ZOrder for individual drawing objects as well as the Plot inside the same indicator.

As far as I know this is not possible. When faced with the same problem I just run two copies of the same indicator on the same chart, with optional objects on or off and then use the usual Shift-mouse wheel to lift up/down the Z-order of one of the indicators.

(It may be possible using the direct object interface calls but I have no access to Ninja at present so cannot check.)

Travel Well
