Ninjatrader indicators without plots

Is it possible to insert an indicator in a Ninjatrader chart as text without drawing the indicator? Attached is an example of what I mean, using ADX. I have just typed in the value of ADX, but I would like it to update. If I were using this live, I would not have the ADX panel at the bottom of the chart, just the text embedded in the chart.

Instead of trying to explain how to do it, I made a quick and dirty indicator you can study and customize to fit your needs.

@eDanny, thanks very much. That was quick. How would I customize fonts and colors? Position on the chart is perfect.

You could open the indicator in its editor and hit F1 to open the help guide. Search for DrawTextFixed and see how you can customize that line of code to look the way you want. I used the short version to get it out the door.

you can define a variables under the public class: Indicator as follows

 
Code
        private Font textFont             = new Font("Arial Narrow", 8);
        private Font textFont2             = new Font("Wingdings 3", 12);
and then use them within your DrawText object, for example

 
Code
                           DrawText
                              (
                                  "lodelta"+CurrentBar, AutoScale,
                                  "„", 0, SMA(9)[0],
                                   0, Color.Blue, textFont2, StringAlignment.Center, Color.Transparent, Color.Transparent, 0
                                );

Thanks @eDanny and @zikonc. I really had no idea what I was doing but I got it to work. Here it is:

DrawTextFixed("adxnumber", ADX(Input, aDXperiod)[0].ToString("ADX:" + " 0.00"), TextPosition.TopRight, Color.Black, textFont, Color.Green, Color.Transparent, 30);
