    Indicator shows only the value

    Is it possible to plot only the value of an indicator on the chart?

    Hello Ironman9973,

    Thank you for writing in. If you only want to see the value of an indicator plotted on the chart (no bars) you can use the following steps:

    1) Open up the Data Series Dialog on your chart by pressing CTRL + F on your keyboard
    2) Set all the parameters for your chosen ChartStyle to "Transparent".

    If you are using Candlesticks you would take the following steps:

    2a) Expand the "Candle outline" section and set the "Color" to "Transparent".
    2b) Set the "Color for down bars" to "Transparent".
    2c) Set the "Color for up bars" to "Transparent".
    2d) Expand the "Wick" section and set the "Color" to "Transparent".
    2e) Press OK

    I have attached a screenshot showing what this looks like below.

    3) Add your indicator(s) to the chart.

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      Thank you for your answer. But I want to see the bars also. I dont want to see the indicator line. I want to see only the value of an indicator with the bars. Preferable the value in the corner somewhere.

        Hello Ironman9973,

        Thank you for clarifying. To accomplish this you can open the DataBox to view the value. It will show you the value of all items on the chart including your indicator at whatever point your cursor is over. Alternatively, you can reprogram your indicator to print its value by adding the following code to the bottom of the OnBarUpdate() method:
        Code:
        DrawTextFixed("Value", Value[0].ToString(), TextPosition.TopRight);
        For more information on the DrawTextFixed method, please see our help guide here: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...=drawtextfixed

        And then setting the plot colors to transparent (You can do this either in the indicators dialog box or in the indicator's code).
        To accomplish this programatically you would change all of the indicators plots to transparent like the following:
        Code:
        Add(new Plot(Color.Transparent, "SMA"));
        As an example I have done this to the SMA indicator and provided the updated SMA indicator and screenshots below for your convenience.

        Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
