Bollinger Band Price Markers Only

Hi,

I'm using BollingerEma2FpTrendByThatManFromTexas and it rocks!! I'm sure it's on here.

I'd like to hack it so that I see the Price Markers Only. The problem is that when you turn the colors to transparent the price markers go transparent as well and nothing shows up. I had a look at the code but it's more advanced than I am.

Anybody know of a way to just see the price markers and not the bands??

What part of the code actually does the plots?? Something about a BASE??

Thanks for any info!

I don't have nt loaded anymore, but edit the indicator and delete or comment out the plot you don't want to see anymore. Comment out by putting /// before the line.

alright, I commented out all the plots you indicated, compiled and added the indicator to a couple charts and the bands are still there. Impossible, you say? No sorry, tried it a few times. Weird?

Hmm, well he has a separate section where it looks likes he is doing some fancy color filling. Are the bands you are seeing lines or just color fill? Maybe post a chart showing what you want to keep and what you want to lose.

Color fills and lines - I want nothing on the chart except the price markers that give the bands values and appear in the right hand Y-Axis. If I could find how to choose their color seperately then I could just change the bands to Transparent but they default to the same color as the bands.

Simplest cheat I can think of is to use a chart background color (e.g. WhiteSmoke attached), set the Bollinger bands to the same color and use Z-Order (click select, Shift-mouse wheel) to move price above the faint Bolly lines.

Not ideal but it works, if I have a better light bulb moment over Easter I'll post it.

Travel Well

Yea, that's it. Here I am messing around with the code when I can just match the lines to the background color. Duh! Thanks

I added an if statement to "public override void Plot".

You can toggle the plot with the showPlot parameter that I added.

But I am not confident that this is the way to do it, so please try it.
