    Strategy Builder - Conditions and Actions - Drawing

    When I want to use the strategy builder to draw any object to mark a long or short entry, the tag is static such that the draw object may only be drawn once for the last entry.

    Any marks for prior entries are removed because the tag is static.

    It should be possible to select dynamic tags, such that all entries may be marked on the chart.

    The video explains well how to add the string. I simply did not know where to click.

    Thank you again for your help!

    Hello Harry,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I am not seeing this, had you followed the steps I had provided or had you typed in CurrentBars[0]?

    Here is a video showing the process I followed to create a dynamic string: https://www.screencast.com/t/4Z5uptecsONS

    If you are using a different process that is resulting in a static string, can you provide the steps for that?

    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    Hello Jesse,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I have tried your suggestion, but it does not work. The tags are non-dynamic. When applying your method I get a string
    Code:
    @"MyCustomStrategy Dot_1 CurrentBars[0]"
    That string is static. What I need is this:
    Code:
    @"MyCustomStrategy Dot_1" + CurrentBars[0]

    Hello Harry,

    Thank you for the post.

    It is possible to set dynamic tags for drawing objects, you would just need to append the Misc -> Current Bar to your string.

    Here is an image of the string builder with current bar used: https://www.screencast.com/t/10hHQ17cqK

    After clicking "Add" to add a new row to the string, you can click inside of the box where it says Set to choose Misc -> Current Bar.

    To get to this screen, from the drawing object configuration where you have "Tag" you would click "Set" after hovering the mouse over "Tag".

    I look forward to being of further assistance.
