Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


You might try using DrawText instead in combination with Wingdings. Just open up Word or whatever on your system and look at Wingdings 1,2,3, type on your keyboard and find a symbol you like (several arrow types), then control the size with DrawText Font Size.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hello RJay,

I don't use NT7 yet but here's some code snippets from 6.5

 
Code
#region Variables
private Font textFontSymbol = new Font("Webdings", 20);//"a" is checkmark
private Font textFontSymbolWing = new Font("Wingdings", 16);//"l" is a circle
private Font textFontSymbolWing_3 = new Font("Wingdings 3", 16);//

#endregion
 
Code
if (Close[0] < Close[5])//testing only
{
 
DrawText("UpArrow"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,High[0] + 4*TickSize,Color.Blue,textFontSymbolWing,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("UpRightArrow"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,High[0] + 8*TickSize,Color.Blue,textFontSymbolWing,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("RightArrow"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,High[0] + 12*TickSize,Color.Blue,textFontSymbolWing,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("DownRightArrow"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,High[0] + 16*TickSize,Color.Blue,textFontSymbolWing,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("DownArrow"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,High[0] + 20*TickSize,Color.Blue,textFontSymbolWing,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
 
DrawText("UpArrow3"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,Low[0] - 4*TickSize,Color.Red,textFontSymbolWing_3,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("UpRightArrow3"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,Low[0] - 8*TickSize,Color.Red,textFontSymbolWing_3,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("RightArrow3"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,Low[0] - 12*TickSize,Color.Red,textFontSymbolWing_3,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("DownRightArrow3"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,Low[0] - 16*TickSize,Color.Red,textFontSymbolWing_3,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
DrawText("DownArrow3"+CurrentBar,false,"",0,Low[0] - 20*TickSize,Color.Red,textFontSymbolWing_3,StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty,Color.Empty,10);
 
}
HTH,
Kirk

You also could try Alt characters like this ▼ or ▲ which are generated by holding the Alt key and typing 31 or 30 on the keypad and then releasing the Alt key. Changing your Font size will change the symbol size. Dan

Thanks, Dan,

I forgot to mention that I use the Character Map in windows.

Then, you can see what symbol you're looking for, select it to the window, copy that, and paste in the correct location within the DrawText code.

HTH,
Kirk
