NinjaScript dash style switch

Hi,

I use
 
Code
PlotColors[x][x]=Color.Lambda;
already to switch color from bar to bar.
I use
 
Code
Plots[x].Pen.DashStyle=DashStyle.Dash;
on Initialize{} if I need to change dash style for a plot without switch from bar to bar (conditions)

Is there such a thing just like PlotColors that would command dash style (bar to bar conditions inside OnBarUpdate{}) instead ?

Cheers

I think that you need to define two plots, a "Solid" one and a "Dash" one. Instead of changing dash styles you would need to change plots and reset the other one. Not very elegant, but it should work.

As FT stated, you can have a multi color plot, but not a multi dashstyle plot. Each plot can have only one dashstyle so by switching between plots you can get the effect you want. But switching between plots can cause gaps, and filling them causes the plot to repaint.. the old problem with NT6.5.

Thanks for the light.

I'll work around the hybrid way then. I'll fill the gaps with "Draw Line" objects if needed.
