    Adjusting/Padding Draw.TextFixed location

    Is there a way to slightly adjust the location beyond the very coarse grained TextPosition values? I find that I cannot place text in TopLeft or TopRight without getting obscured by other chart labeling.

    Hello RandyT,

    The Draw.TextFixed() does not allow for positions other than the preset positions for TextPosition.

    You could add a new empty line to the text to move the text up a line.


    Or you can render the text with SharpDX instead of using a drawing tool and then you would be able to render the text anywhere you want.

    Below is a public link to an example of rending text.

      Thanks Chelsea,

      Just a comment on the "moved" post, I note that "Add-On Development" describes itself as "General NinjaScript development questions.", which I thought this question fell into since it really doesn't just apply to Indicators.

      Seems that the "General Development" category in the NT7 grouping is now gone from NT8 and was probably renamed to "Add-On" development I am guessing?

      I know I have done this for several of my more "general" postings. Apologies if I am creating a mess for you.

        Hello RandyT,

        It made since to me to move this to the Indicators section because not all scripts can call Draw methods. Specifically, Addon, BarType, DrawingTool, MA Column, Optimizers, PerformanceMetrics, ShareServices, and SuperDOM Column scripts cannot call Draw methods.

        Draw methods are only available to indicators and strategies.


        I tend to moderately organize the forum in a way I think it will help members find information..
        But, in general its fine to post in the Addon section of the forums.
