I would like to create a simple indicator that is essentially a floating message, with an x/y coordinate away from the closing price so that the message moves with price and never moves out of view like a static text block would do. Does something like this already exist as an indicator? ...or can someone point me in the right direction as far as creating it within NT8?

Bullywig,

See attached file, gbNotes. Below is a screenshot of the indicator on a chart.

This looks great. I have been slowly learning how to do this on my own, but haven't figured out how to justify the text. This helps immensely. Thank you for taking the time to share your work. Cheers!

Hi Bullywig.
I think the attached code does what you want. It could be modified to allow more choices, font, size etc. and would probably need to be incorporated into whatever indicator you want to trigger the alert.

Should have said - You will need to make the margin big enough.

The message for me will be something like "Don't be an idiot and Fuck with your stops!!!" followed by " Stop thinking you are seeing something that's obviously not there!!!"

Rules to live by. thanks for sharing your knowledge. Cheers!
