Default Draw.Line > price label

Hi NT,

I am using this little line to display a stop loss, how can i amend it to show the actual value (label) in the price axis ? (in the same way I get a price label of the last traded price)

Draw.Line(this, "stoploss" + CurrentBar, false, 1, stopLoss, 0, stopLoss, Brushes.Red, DashStyleHelper.Dot, 3);

Thank you for the post.

Due to a high number of requests for this item for NinjaTrader 8, I am working on a conversion for this indicator for NinjaTrader 7:


I will update this forum post once I have it uploaded.

For a simple solution, you could do this (I modified your snippet for the example):

protected override void OnBarUpdate()

Draw.Line(this, "stoploss" + CurrentBar, false, 1, High[1], 0, Low[0], Brushes.Red, DashStyleHelper.Dot, 3);
//Draw.Text(NinjaScriptBase owner, string tag, string text, int barsAgo, double y)
Draw.Text(this, "mytext" + CurrentBar, "My Line", 1, High[1]+TickSize*2);
I look forward to assisting further.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
