Redratsal,
How would I get the numbers on the lines to plot. Currently my file allows me to input the numbers and the entry label numbers but when they come up on my chart they do not show the actual numeric number for the line and every time I want to get the number for the line I have to use my cursor then look on the data box or cursor line. This would be a big help. If you have time. PS: I have a black background and tried changing that but still no numbers. Your help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks
Hector

Hi Redratsal
Thanks for this great tool.
Is there a way I can get the text further away from the right edge of the chart that is further back along the line to the left?

The function that plots the titles is :

DrawText(string tag, string text, int barsAgo, double y, Color color)

int barsAgo=The bar (x axis co-ordinate) where the draw object will be drawn. For example, a value of 10 would paint the draw object 10 bars back.

Find attached a version with customized barsago function, just set how many barsago respect the actual bar, you want the title of the level to be located (default is 0)

Thank you Redratsal
I have deleted the old version & installed your latest one but unfortunately on my chart the text is still staying where the last bar has printed no matter what I use in bars ago.
Any comment?

I am a knucklehead, I modified just the first line and forgot about the other 9. Find attached an updated version. If you use negative values the titles will shift to the right.

Hi Redratsal
Can you make the lines programmable as to STYLE & WIDTH without too much trouble?
Something like "Constant Lines" in NT.
I already have some lines on my charts & would like to be able to make Bug's different.
I am hopeless at any type of programming.
