Default Draw.Text white only

Hello

When I set a text using Draw.Text, the color of the text is always set to white regardless of the color I set as a parameter. It used to be OK but somewhere along the way it changed to white only.

Thank you

Hello kiss987,

Thanks for your post.

There are a few overloads for Draw.Text, some of which do not specify a color and would use the default color/font of the chart which would change if you changed application skins.

Can you clarify what version of NinjaTrader8 you are using (look in Help.About).

Can you post the specific code you are using for Draw.text()?

Hello kiss987,

Thanks for your post.

I see no issue with the code you have posted. It tests fine and produced the expected results. The brush can be changed and the changes follow as expected.

If you use another color for the brush, does it also show white?

Please create a new chart, do not use any chart templates. Add the indicator in question, does it also show there in white?

I tried that, it is still white.
I think (not sure) that it stop working correctly after I changed the properties of one of the text object on my chart.

Thanks

Hello kiss987,

Thanks for your reply.

Can you provide a template or workspace that consistently produces the issue? If so, please send into PlatformSupport[at]NinjaTrader[dot]Com, mark the e-mail Atten: Paul and include a link to this thread.

I note that this sounds similar to what is being reported in this thread: https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...d.php?t=110371
