I don't know the difference between right and left

The margin is on the left, will rename the variables and indicator parameter correctly and post a new version

I just released version 1.0.7 of the indicator. Just a small change not impacting functionality. I renamed the "Right Hand Margin" parameter to "Left Hand Margin" which it actually is.



Little interesting tidbit, I don't naturally know the difference between the two. When someone asks me which is left and which is right, I try to write with a hand, if it does not feel natural, I know that is left

you just need to set "DrawHorizontalGridLines" and "DrawVerticalGridLines" to "true". don't think a new version is necessary

 
Code
protected override void OnStateChange()
	    {
	        if (State == State.SetDefaults)
	        {
	            Description 				= @"Economic news indicator that shows the economic news on your   
	            Name 					= "awxEconomicNews";
	            Calculate 				= Calculate.OnBarClose;
	            IsOverlay 				= true;
	            DisplayInDataBox 			= false;
	            DrawOnPricePanel 			= true;
	            DrawHorizontalGridLines 		= false;
	            DrawVerticalGridLines 		= false;
	            PaintPriceMarkers 			= false;
	            ScaleJustification 			= NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart.ScaleJustification.Right;
	            IsSuspendedWhileInactive 	= true;
	        }

Thanks @Silvester17

EDIT: @TimStone you can also just remove the two lines of code that @Silverster17 highlighted in the post above. This will ensure that the indicator will leave whatever the default is on your chart.

@TimStone, I just uploaded a new version (Version 1.0.8) that removes these lines of code and respects your chart settings. Please just download and install the latest version and the problem should be solved.

Chart Rendering Failed

Loaded the indicator and it appears to be working and saved the chart template. However, if I restart NT8 the indicator does not appear on the chart although its in the list of chart indicators!

I checked the log file and there is an error message that "Chart rendering failed" and that a "Direct X error has occurred while rendering the chart".

Would you take a look and see if you can fix the problem?
Many thanks.
