RE: Chart Rendering problem

Hi @Popsicle

After further tests I believe the problem may be caused be another indicator and NOT by the News Indicator!
It's been running today with no problems.
I will try and isolate the problem and let you know if there is a problem that needs to be fixed.
Love the the indicator by the way!

Reversing order of news

Hi @Popsicle.
I added a feature to reverse the order of the news so that the latest is on top. A new property "New On Top" controls whether to use it. See attached. If you like it include in your next release, otherwise toss it!
Nice job, btw.

Version 1.1.01 - Opacity for Historical News

Hi again @Popsicle.
Since I was already paying attention to your indicator I decided on one more feature before I move on. I wanted to have a way to distinguish between news events that have already past and those upcoming.

The means I decided upon is to dim the appearance of the items in the past. I'm assuming that it's the the time of the upcoming events that we want to focus on and as such news that's past is not important - the market has already reacted. Thus upcoming news items can be made to appear brighter in the list than those that have past.

I've made the change and included a new version that has a new property in the Colors section. A value of 1-100 specifies the opacity for the historical items. I like a value of 80 and defaulted the setting to that.

Even though I'm saying past news is less important, it would be nice to have a column that displays the actual number. I don't know if your feed supports that.

One more thing: While testing I noticed that some items further down the list showed as being in the future ( full opacity ). I'm sorting most recent on top using the prior version I posted. My sorting simply reverses the order of news items in the original list and I had assumed this list to be in chronological order. But I think it may not be and needs to be sorted on time to straighten it out. I've already put the DateTime structure into the NewsItem type so if that's the the problem then sorting on time should fix it. Have a look see.
Regards,
tng

Version 1.0.1.02 - time windows and bug fixes

This release allows users to focus on the immediately upcoming news with two new properties to eliminate news items that are too old or too far in the future.
"Minutes Upcoming News" - News items that are more than this number of minutes in the future will not appear
"Minutes To Expire"- News items that are more than this number of minutes in the past will not appear

Also fixed a parsing bug in which sometimes the xml entities < or > would appear in the data.

I am not getting any news from the latest version

I tried the latest version because news were not updating I had to manually update it by restore and apply every time.
The new one doesn't even do anything.
Can any of you take a look? Thanks

Hi @skfutures,

The indicator still seems to work fine on my side. Could you please tell me which version of NT8 you are using? Also, if you have the indicator on a chart over the weekend you would see no news as the feed would not be providing any news.

Thanks,
Popsicle

I am running 8.0.4.0

I am not talking about the weekend. For some reason when the day ends the news become blank. So I go back to indicator and every part of colors are gone. I mean it's gone, empty. I restore then it works again. I was suspicious and I removed all my indicators and tried it. Does the same thing. Only indicator I have is sim22 delta 3, ema, supdemzone.
I don't understand...
