    Possible to stop NT from redrawing indicator?

    I've noticed that an indicator will redraw in its entirety on each tick (COBC = false) when I insert a condition (like an oscillator crossing above 100 or below -100) using

    Plots[0].Pen.Width = 2;

    to alter the width when the condition is fulfilled.

    Besides the fact I only want the width altered when the condition = true, is there a way to stop the entire redraw, which probably would save a lot of CPU especially in an indicator like Market Profile which would be redrawing every letter of the profile on every tick?

    Tarkus,

    The Pen object is a Microsoft defined object as part of one of their drawing packages. Unfortunately I know of no way to make it not redraw.

    However, if you create 2 plots each with a different width and have each have the same values, you can set the color of them to transparent when you don't want either plot drawing. Please find a reference sample for changing colors below.

    Please let me know if I may assist further.

      Not unless you are willing to override the Plot() method, and make it draw only the last 2 bars.

        Put in a condition with variables to only change the width when needed.
