Visual indicator for RTH hitting ETH high/low

Regarding the 93% research:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/20164-master-homework-statistics-thread-3.html#post227636

I was wondering if I could lean on @vegasfoster or the other fine Sierra programmers, and ask for a small visual indicator to be coded that can go on the top right of my chart, next to the countdown timer.

The indicator would just be a simple text blob like "OH: xxxx OL: xxxx" and maybe use the Strikethrough font to indicate of one or both were touched or taken out during the cash session, like "OH: xxxx OL: xxxx" or some other simple visual way --- without adding more horizontal lines to my chart.

I would ask that I can control the position of it so I can make sure it ends up to the left or below countdown timer. And I would ask that there are inputs for the session start/end times, because I use a 24h chart.

Thanks kindly if anyone will do this!

Mike

Except I don't want to use SC sessions because I like 24h charts, and I don't want more horizontal lines on my chart

I made a simple version.

You can define the ETH start and end time, and it will get the high/low of the period defined. It can handle a startime up to 24 hours before the end time.

If a high or low between the ETH end time and current time takes out the ETH high/low it will be marked by a '*'

The font size can and colors can be changed in the "subgraph" tab.

The position can be set as an input or it can be moved around with the mouse (right click and select "move drawing")

Perfect @ktrader, thank you!

Only issue is, I can't move it to the top right of my chart. It stays on top left no matter what the settings are.

As a quick fix you can right click on the text-label, choose "chart drawing properties", go to the options tab and select horizonal align: right in the combo-box (see attached picture).

Then right click on the text-label again and choose "move drawing" and move the text-label to the position in the right corner. (it will be saved with the chart so you only need to do it once).

Meanwhile i will look into if i can make some more options for the input values (controlling if it left/right aligned).

Also in the current version the position you set in the input parameter only applies when you first add it to the chart (as the object is created just once) - I will see if i can fix that as well.
