View Full Version : Draw to the right of the current bar on a chart

I am desiring to draw vertical lines to the right of the current (or last) bar on a chart. Do you have any suggestions on how I can accomplish this? I have tried to pass negative values to the barsAgo parameter of the DrawVerticalLine function but I then get nothing to plot.

Sorry, this is not supported right now. You can not haev an anchor point to the right of the rightmost bar of a chart.
However, you may consider drawing a Ray with both anchor points to the left of the rightmost bar, but the Ray actually would get rendered into the region at the right of the rightmost bar.file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Droth/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg

Thanks Dierk, unfortunately, I wish to plot straight vertical lines.
Any idea when this feature may be possible?

I will add this to our list of features to consider for future development. If you are familiar with C# programming, you can override the indicator Plot() methodand do some custom painting which would then allow you draw a vertical line to the right of the current bar.
See the @CustomPlotSample.cs forsome ideas on how this can be done. This ventures into C# Graphics class which we do not provide technical support for.

Thanks Ray, I will look into that.
