    DrawText placement control?

    My indicator is in beta testing, but is showing some anomalies with DrawText. I place numbers or letters just above or below bars. The letters or numbers need to be close to the bottom or top of the bar so the user can identify which bar belongs to the character.

    For most instruments it works fine. However for a few the character ends up way below or above the bar. Here's a sample function call that places an "B" above the bar:

    y = High[barsAgo]+1;

    // Tried this but doesn't work any better:
    y = High[barsAgo]+TickCount*100;

    DrawText("bar1", "B", barsAgo, y, color);

    Is there a way to better control the placement of the characters? A better way to calculate the "y" value? By pixel maybe? The character needs to be predictably close to the bar.

    Thanks in advance

    What about

    y = High[barsAgo] + TickSize;
