Parameters

owner

The hosting NinjaScript object which is calling the draw method

 

Typically will be the object which is calling the draw method (e.g., "this")

tag

A user defined unique id used to reference the draw object.

 

For example, if you pass in a value of "myTag", each time this tag is used, the same draw object is modified. If unique tags are used each time, a new draw object will be created each time.

isAutoScale

Determines if the draw object will be included in the y-axis scale

anchor1BarsAgo

The number of bars ago (x value) of the 1st anchor point

anchor1Time

The time of the 1st anchor point

anchor1Y

The y value of the 1st anchor point

anchor2BarsAgo

The number of bars ago (x value) of the 2nd anchor point

anchor2Time

The time of the 2nd anchor point

anchor2Y

The y value of the 2nd anchor point

anchor3BarsAgo

The number of bars ago (x value) of the 3rd anchor point

anchor3Time

The time of the 3rd anchor point

anchor3Y

The y value of the 3rd anchor point

brush

The brush used to color draw object (reference)

dashStyle

DashStyleHelper.Dash
DashStyleHelper.DashDot
DashStyleHelper.DashDotDot
DashStyleHelper.Dot
DashStyleHelper.Solid

 

Note: Drawing objects with y values very far off the visible canvas can lead to performance hits. Fancier DashStyles like DashDotDot will also require more resources than simple DashStyles like Solid.

width

The width of the draw object

isGlobal

Determines if the draw object will be global across all charts which match the instrument

templateName

The name of the drawing tool template the object will use to determine various visual properties (empty string could be used to just use the UI default visuals instead)
