    Fully customize text printed in top left chart corner

    Is it possible to fully customize the text printed by an indicator in the chart's top left corner?

    I know I can set the indicator's Name property, but when this is done, the indicator itself automatically adds something like (AAPL 10-Minute) to the end of the string that it prints on the chart.

    I'd like to completely override that behaviour. Is it possible? In NT7 it could be done by overriding the ToString() method, but it seems no longer possible in NT8. Thanks in advance

    Hello bboyle1234, and thank you for your question.

    In NinjaTrader 8, the property you would like to override is DisplayName. There is documentation for this here,

    Please let us know if there are any other ways we can help.

      Dear Jessica,
      Thank you very much. Your message was enough to get me going.
      Please check the link you provided though ... I think the link is incorrect.
      Indeed my solution was to override the indicator's DisplayName { get; } property, but the link you sent me is in regard to the DisplayName of Anchor objects.
