custom indicator chart label

Hi,

Too much label info on the chart bothers me.

I know you can avoid it by using

 
Code
public override string ToString()
{
           return "Indicator";
}
which forces the name on the chart. However you loose variables settings too.

Is there a way to only errase instrument and timeframe info, but keep variables displayed ?

Thanks

I think you can just change the label to a space and it will keep the indicator name but lose the settings.

this.Name = ' ';

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)

Hi Mike,

If I do that I really get a whole blank for everything.

An option is to use StringBuilder to create the string to display whatever you want. Do not forget to add " using System.Text; " to the declarations.



 
Code
                            
        public override string ToString()
        {
            
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            
sb.AppendFormat("Modified Bands({0},{1})"period.ToString(), deviation.ToString());
            return 
sb.ToString();
        }

Actually, it is much simpler than using string builder, just do the following:

 
Code
                            
        public override string ToString()

        {
            return 
"Modified Bands(" period.ToString() + "," deviation.ToString() + ")";
        } 
Using StringBuilder is not efficient for a small number of strings (you can google it, but here is one link StringBuilder).
