    test for a drawn object?

    Is there a way to test for the existence of a specific drawn object on the chart, given the tag name is known? If not, please make one?
    Similar to RemoveDrawnObject("unique_tagname") only a test for existence that simply returns a boolean flag...

    There are times I want to modify a previous object, but not draw one if it doesn't exist. The original object creation logic is far too complex to repeat and would unnecessarily slow down the code, when all I want to know is if there's a drawn object of that name on the chart already.

    Thanks for your suggestion. We'll add it to the list of future considerations.

    Note: You always could maintain a collection of tags managed by your code.

      One alternate suggestion that might be easier to implement:
      simply put the boolean return code on the RemoveDrawObject() method.
      True if successful, false if not there. That might be simpler for your coders to implement.

      Thanks!
