    DrawDot() works with primary bars object only?

    Hello Loki45,

    Thank you for your post.

    The following code will work but keep in mind it's resource intensive and there is really no way to have dots show on a chart where the timestamps of the added bar series in code may not exist on the chart. In my test I ran a 1 Minute chart with an added 1 Tick series in code, only three dots showed as only three ticks occurred on the same timestamp at the 1 Minute chart bars.
    Code:
    			if (CurrentBars[0] <= 20 || CurrentBars[1] <= 20) return;
    			
                if (BarsInProgress == 1)
    			{
    				DrawDot(CurrentBars[1].ToString(), true, 0, Closes[1][0], Color.Blue);
    			}
    If you wanted to show dots on the close price of another bar series you could do that. However, in either case I would recommend custom plotting (graphics) in Plot() versus the draw methods as this will be expensive in regards to PC resources.

    For an example of custom plotting go to Tools > Edit NinjaScript > Indicator > CustomPlotSample.
