I could not find anything for alerting indicator based on TL(s).

Found one commercial version here but it is insanely priced.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Here you go. Enjoy...

It generates the alert when a Solid ExtendedLine or Solid HorizontalLine is touched. It re-arms itself when price goes away from TL (controlled by ReArmTick - default 20).

Currently the alerts are initialized when indicator is added. Any newly drawn TL or changes to TL are not effective until indicator is remove and re-add. Please suggest if you know how to improve it and make near real-time.

Please excuse me if your suggestion is around iterating over DrawObjects on every tick. I don't want to do that for performance reasons...

Thanks,
