Hi Guys,

I am sorry if this has been asked anywhere on this forum I have searched and did not find what I was looking for...

Has anyone here programmed an indicator in order to extend a rectangle to the right on NT?

If yes, can you please refer me to the right place?

Thanks you very much for your help
Ivan

Unfortunately, No. Ninja should be the one who does it!

You have to use Windows forms direct draw graphics methods, see the basic Ichimoku indicator for example, I can't remember if it's built-in with Ninja or on futures.io (formerly BMT).

edit: Also just remembered the built-in Ninja VolumeProfile indicator uses similar.

Hi Ivan,

Can you describe a bit more what you are trying to do or want to do? Pictures help too!

yes, they have all necessary code from their existing tools so it is just a cut and paste job but it has been 10Y and they just won't do it!!!

Maybe I am misunderstanding but if all you want to do is have an indicator redraw a rectangle to the right edge I don't see what the problem would be. Do you have the indicator that you want to draw the rectangle?

Okay, I guess I misunderstood. In your initial post you used the word indicator, now you are using the word tool, as in using the rectangle drawing tool. Now Cory's response makes sense as that was what he was responding to.
Sorry, can't help you.

Thanks Ivan. I have been looking for the same thing. I searched high and low. But after reading your post I changed my search key word from indicator to tool! Well I found it! This guy has put the drawing tools on steroids! It's a bit pricey at $200 I think it's well spent. I an not getting anything for posting this.

Thanks, yeah, that's what I'm already doing. The rectangle makes it much more visible.
