Some of this might be useful ?!

In manual mode you can fix the upper and lower margin, but I did not see any option to format the numbers.


Fat Tails,

What you are doing is currently well beyond my own contribution/knowledge, and I might be totally confused on your project, but I have a hunch some of this might be useful to you:

Have just corrected the code from post # 10. As I cannot change it anymore, here is the new version. The prior version had a small bug, so may be one of the moderators can replace it with this one.

public override string FormatPriceMarker(double price)
	double trunc = Math.Truncate(price);
	int fraction = Convert.ToInt32(320 * Math.Abs(price - trunc) - 0.0001); // rounding down for ZF and ZT
	string priceMarker = "";
	if (TickSize == 0.03125) 
		fraction = fraction/10;
		if (fraction < 10)
			priceMarker = trunc.ToString() + "'0" + fraction.ToString();
			priceMarker = trunc.ToString() + "'" + fraction.ToString();
	else if (TickSize == 0.015625 || TickSize == 0.0078125)
		if (fraction < 10)
			priceMarker = trunc.ToString() + "'00" + fraction.ToString();
		else if (fraction < 100)
			priceMarker = trunc.ToString() + "'0" + fraction.ToString();
			priceMarker = trunc.ToString() + "'" + fraction.ToString();
		priceMarker = price.ToString(Gui.Globals.GetTickFormatString(TickSize));
	return priceMarker;

V Scale

I just throw this one in here, maybe it helps or not.

I am a little confused by this indicator - it doesn't seem to do anything other than a fixed scale or am I missing something
