  • setPlotType(PLOTTYPE_DOT)

    You have a plot code called setPlotType(PLOTTYPE_DOT) which allows you to put a dot on the price chart at any specified value. This code is the same thing that TOS has which is called PaintingStrategy.Points. However, TOS also has a code called PaintingStrategy.VALUES_BELOW where instead of a dot it plots the actual value of an indicator below or above the price bars instead of a dot. Do you have anything comparable so that numerical values can be plotted under or above the price bars based on the value it has in the script?

    Hello rcbenjamin,
    If you want to plot the value of a variable above or below a price bar, you can use drawTextRelative to put something on a chart that stays with that bar as new bars stream in, or you can use drawTextAbsolute to put a variable on a chart that doesn’t move. In the event of drawTextRelative, I assume that you want the value to never change, in which case you give it a unique name such as "Exit"+rawtime(0) so that it never changes. I have some charts where I want to see the value of an indicator that’s not plotted, so I use drawTextAbsolute with a TagID that’s not unique so that it just keeps changing as the variable changes. I’m going to upload a word document that has the location flags and other info to help you figure it out. I hope that this helps!

    drawTextRelative(0, AboveBar1, YourVariableName,, null, Text.PRESET|Text.CENTER, "Arial", 10, "Exit"+rawtime(0));

    drawTextAbsolute(0, TopRow1, YourVariableName1, Color.RGB(0,192,0), null, Text.PRESET|Text.CENTER, "Courier New", 12, "Var1");
    drawTextAbsolute(-15, TopRow1, YourVariableName2, Color.RGB(192,0,0), null, Text.PRESET|Text.CENTER, "Courier New", 12, "Var2");
