Default Remove object outline

I have an NT7 indicator that uses drawdiamond & drawtriangle. There are times when I don't want the diamond, only the triangles.
The problem is that if I set the diamonds to transparent, there is still a black outline. Transparent only clears the fill of the object, not the outline.
Is there a way I can get the outline of objects transparent or remove alltogether?

Hello Rangerdoc,

Have you tried using RemoveDrawObject()?

Why not take the approach of using a boolean variable (defined as a Property), to control the drawing of the diamond in the first place?

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.
