Crosshair size/color

I posted a request on the NT forum but have not gotten a reply.

Does anyone know of a way to access the crosshair settings?

I would like to change the size/color of the crosshair.

There does not seem to be a way to change this in the UI so I'm hoping there is a way to change it via ninjascript or C#.

6.5 ninja support indicates no API for this

With 6.5, ninja support indicates this is not possible through any existing API's

You can change the lable color using the chart properties windows, color for cross hair label

and there is supposed to be an auto-magic change from black to white if the background is a dark color, but I've not tried that.

Ninja’s native “Global” crosshair increases CPU usages inordinately.

Is this custom CrossHair stable and useable across charts in a global way?
