Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Definition

Returns the series value on the chart scale determined by a y pixel coordinate on the chart.

 

Method Return Value

A double value representing a series value on the chart scale.  This is normally a price value, but can represent indicator plot values as well.

 

Syntax
<chartScale>.GetValueByY(float y)

 

Method Parameters

y

A float value representing a pixel coordinate on the chart scale

 

 

Examples

ns


protected override void OnRender(ChartControl chartControl, ChartScale chartScale)
{
  // the price value of the pixel coordinate passed in the method
  double valueByY =   chartScale.GetValueByY(1);
 
  Print("valueByY: " + valueByY); //2106.19693333  
}

 

 

In the image below, we pass a value of 1 for the y value, which tells us the pixel coordinate of 1 is located at a price of 2106.19 on the chart scale
