Re: How do I add text to a location on screen?

Okay, I tried a very simple one line script of: canvas_text(10,10,close); It draws, but on each bar it keeps writing text to the same location without clearing the old value (it overlays the text on top of the other text). So I then wrapped it for the updating bar, but that makes new subsequent bars...

Re: How do I add text to a location on screen?

Thanks Earik. I must have missed those. I was just about to start creating helper functions to use the count of bars on the screen, then index up with a -1, and who know what else. :)

canvas_text() looks easy enough to implement, but does it update every bar? (I am going to try now....)

How do I add text to a location on screen?

Hi All, How do I add text to a location on the screen (instead of bar based). I see there is a text() function, but the arguments are thus: text(bar, price, string, color, style, size) I don't see any x or y type reference that I could use. I want to add some text to this part of the screen that wil...

Re: Did you know???

"Later, I authored six technical books on very esoteric subjects related to financial markets. Those were meant for an extremely niche audience, and would be insanely boring to anyone outside that specific group of people."

That's us; that's us; that's us!!!!

Setting stops and targets

Hi All, I thought I would share my first QScript with the community! Okay, okay it is not anything special. But I tend to use it every day. This is a simple tool to place visual reference lines on a chart. The lines are placed based on the entry point and the stop point which the user decides on the...

Re: Gann Square Levels

QScript is a proprietary language for Wave59. When you install Wave59 it will ship with two help files. One for Wave59 general use, and one dedicated for QScript. I have that QScript one up all the time. It is quite helpful. As for the language itself, it is quite easy to learn if you have an unders...

Re: Gann Square Levels

Under the Member area on the main www.wave59.com website, there is an older video on Gann fans. (I haven't watched it yet, but I probably will later today. As Earik mentioned in my other post about a video doing square scaling.) As for the EasyLanguage conversion, quite easy: 1) Open up a new script...

Re: Square Scaling

But I like weird numbers!!! :)

In all seriousness, what I ended up doing was writing a QScript that would draw 45° Gann lines. Then used the brute force optimizer to step through and increment the ratios until I found something that "works." But I will go back a watch that video. thanks!
