    Display Custom Message & Remove Strategy Name/Parameters From Chart Display

    Hello,

    When a strategy or indicator is applied to a chart, the strategy/indicator name and associated parameters are printed across the top of the chart.

    Does anyone know of a way to remove that display and print a fixed custom message instead?

    Thank you!

    In the property section of the indicator, there is a "LABEL".

      Hello sledge, thank you. I'm trying to do this in a strategy. I see what you mean by updating the "LABEL" property. However, I want the name of my strategy to show but not the assigned parameters. Or for example I just want my company name to display instead.

      This does not seem to be possible via the "LABEL" property inside the strategy or indicators parameters window.

      Would you kindly clarify a bit further how this may be accomplished inside ninja script? Thank you!

              Hello MercuryScripter,

              To trim your indicator's label we need to override the ToString() method. If you want to display just the indicator name and your company name it would look something like this:

              Code:
              public override string ToString()
              {
              return Name + "MY COMPANY NAME";
              }
              This code would be placed after your
              Code:
              #region Variables
              #endregion
              and before your
              Code:
              #region Properties
              #endregion
              along with your other override methods (ex. Initialize(), OnBarUpdate(), etc.)

              If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
