    I am inclined to believe that the facility has not been enabled, much as we could not place a [Description()] on them in NT7. Well, we could: it just did nothing.

      Note that lines and plots do get tooltips --it's just that they get the default ones (the line/plot's name). You're probably correct, but it's hard to believe there is no way to feed it non-default text.

      Perhaps one of the NT folks can tell us how to do this. If there is no way to do so, then it is a material bug, which should not be hard to fix, and which should be fixed.

        Hello EV,

        Thank you for your post.

        You can use the following format to set the description:
        Code:
        		[Range(1, int.MaxValue)]
        		[NinjaScriptProperty]
        		[Display(Name="What", Description="This", Order=1, GroupName="Parameters")]
        		public int What
        		{ get; set; }

          I do not understand your suggestion
          • You are showing how to set a tooltip for an integer property.
          • The question was how to set a tooltip for a line or a plot, added with AddLine() or AddPlot()

              I take that means there is no way to do so now?

              It seems odd that NT8 does provide default tooltips for lines and plots, but provides no way to customize those same tooltips.

                Hello ETFVoyageur,

                That would be correct. Please let me know if you need further clarification.
