On zig-zag indicator, can the #'s show on top of fib lines?

See screenshot...notice how the zig zag tick count # of 26 is hard to see because it's buried under my fib retracement 50% line

Change the ZOrder = x value in #init, you'll have to play with it to get it where you want it. Positive and negative numbers are valid, if I recall.

I saw Ray demonstrate Z-order with a few indicators when he did the webinar but I don't remember where to go to see the z-order of the various indicators.

Can you remind me?

Yes, as I said above it is in #init. This means in Initialize of the indicator code.

I saw your note about #Init but I thought that you could change the z-order from a menu... I didn't think you had to go into the code to do it.

Do you recall what was Ray doing in the webinar to change z-order? He was changing z-order without going into the code.

It is something like hold ctrl then use mouse scroll wheel.

If you are referring to the order that the indicators display on the chart - click on the indicator you want. Hold down the shift key. Use the mouse scroll wheel to put it in the order you want. Hope this helps.
