    Enabling black Outline of Candles

    Hi Support,

    I am trying to modify a candlestick indicator to draw candles in a different way. And I am using the following code to draw a candle:

    BarColor = Color.Red;

    What I am seeing is that the candles are drawn in red color, but they do no have a black outline. I have "candleoutlinecolor" as black in my chart properties, but still it doesn't draw the black outline.

    Can you please tell me, how I can get the blackoutline.

    Thanks

      Thanks for getting back to me Derek.

      Can I request it to be added to the next release 6.5

      The problem is that the readability of candles and look/feel of candles changes a lot, without the black outline. And any indicators which candles do not appear properly. I am sure other users also want to have the black outline.

      Thanks

          Thanks Derek. That would be really helpful in increasing readability of the charts and without candlestick outline, its really hard to read the charts.

          Do you know when they would be coming up with a ETA of the next Ninja release.

          Thanks

                Thanks Futures_Shark. I appreciate it.

                I tried it, but it is like overwriting my indicator candles. So, could not use it.

                Thanks

                  Try copying the Plot class into your indicator and commenting out the "FillRectangle" calls.

                    Thanks Gumphrie. Sorry for the delay in reply.

                    I am just learning Ninja programming. Can you please tell me where I can find the plot class.

                    Thanks

                        Thanks Ray. Do you know if there would be a Beta release to test 6.5 soon?

                        Thanks

                            Candle outline in indicator

                            Hi Support,

                            Now that 6.5 Beta is released, can you tell me how I can add "candle outline" to the indicator, which changes candle colors. I am using the following code to draw a candle:

                            BarColor = Color.Red;

                            I have "candleoutlinecolor" as black in my chart properties, but still it doesn't draw the black candle outline.

                            Can you please tell me, how I can get the blackoutline.

                            Thanks

                              If you are referring to "Bar outline" and changing the color of that, by default it is black and can be changed. Other than that, it is unclear to me what you want.
