    Changing Chart Button Background based on OnBarUpdate event

    Is this even possible? If so, would you give me a general direction?

    I've tried

    if (condition == true)
    { one set of chart button specs)
    else
    { a different set of chart button specs}

    but that doesn't seem to do the trick.

    Or should I be applying the conditions to ForceRefresh() only?

    Just asking before I potentially waste more time on this. Thanks.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your post.

    Yes, it is possible using a dispatcher in the OnBarUpDate().

    I've created an example from the longshorttoolbar strategy. I removed the OBU code and added code to set the background of the "Long" button to be green when the bar is Up and red when the bar is down.

        Like a charm. Thanks again. Indeed, THAT's what I call "technical support."
