    Where do arrows go?

    Hello, I wrote an indicator which has been working fine until now. I wanted to draw some arrows on the indicator.

    The indicator basically does the following:

    if(....) {
    BackColor = Color.Red;
    } else if(....) {
    DrawArrowUp(CurrentBar.ToString(), 0, 0.9, Color.Green);
    }

    The background color works fine, but the arrows show up in the main (the price bar) rather than the separate plot area for my indicator.

    How can I draw the arrows on the right plot?

    In the Initialize() method you want to set DrawOnPricePanel to false.

      Works beautifully!

      Thanks Josh!

      Now, if I can fix the min and max value of my indicator at -1 and 1, I would be golden. The only thing that sounds remotely promising is AutoScale = false, but documentation says it's for something else entirely, and indeed, on trial does not actually fix the min and max value of the y-axis--as one might have expected.

      Gratefully,

      Henry

        Well what range of values is your indicator taking on right now?

          Usually somewhere between -0.5 and 0.5

          This indicator can theoretically go from -1 to 1, but usually stays between -0.5 and 0.5. NT is autoscaling my indicator chart, which is nice for the main price chart but not for my indicator...

            You can try adding lines to your plots at -1 and 1. Just make the lines transparent.

            Code:
            Add(new Line(Color.Transparent, -1, "Lower"));
