    Text Underline

    I use the following to draw text above certain bars

    DrawText("Tag"+CurrentBar,true,"String",0, High[0],0,myColor,textFont,StringAlignment.Center,Color.E mpty,Color.Empty,10);

    When a certain set of conditions are met I want to underline the text-
    textFont has a property called Underline but how do I get it to work please?

    textFont.Underline scans but does not compile.

    Mindset,

    I believe that property is a read only property. You would likely need to create/change the Font object with the underline setting.

      Font Object

      Isn't textFontBold a font object?
      sorry for being so dim but how would I change it?

        Code:
        Font f = new Font("Arial",8,FontStyle.Underline );
        replace textFont with f

        google "font C#" for more. that way its much easier.

          Font object

          Isn't that a new instance of an object?- I did look at the msdn site but it uses TextCollections which seemed very complicated for something that is very simple.

          So I need to serialize the new font f object as well?

          edit oops - how do I make text bold and underlined?

            Mindset, not tested right now, but believe this should do it -

            Code:
             
            Font f = new Font("Arial", 8, FontStyle.Bold & FontStyle.Underline);

              Bold + Underline

              thanks Bertrand that would have taken me an age to figure out!
              I understood | to mean 'or' - logically shouldn't it be '&'?

              mmm - we ought to see that your post has been edited... your revision with the & strangely doesn't work, but | does. Bizarre.
