    how to force refreash

    I am using DrawText within my override of the OnMarketData method, but these specific DrawText changes do not render on the screen. I do have CalculateOnBarClose = false in initalize, but I think because the changes I am using DrawText to illustrate are not based on price ticks, the screen refreash process does not trigger. Is there a way to cause these to update on the screen when issued?

    It's late, but isn't there a ChartControl.Refresh()?


    There's probably a good reason nothing happens in OnMarketData with respect to your drawtext. I'm sure you are about to find out.

      tks, got it. Found an example that adds in a delay check so the CPU does not spin out of control

      if (lastRefresh.AddMilliseconds(refreash_delay) < DateTime.Now){
      ChartControl.Refresh();
      lastRefresh = DateTime.Now;
      }

      Thus far I am able to set the value to at 500 (ms) and all seems ok, but it's not a busy time for the market right now either...well see in the AM

      thanks for the reply
