View Full Version : Controlling Significant digits in the data box
06-23-2007, 04:25 PM
I have various indicators that when placed on a chart and then displayed in the data box always are rounded to tenths. For example, 845.5. How do I display more significant digits such as 845.56 ?

It appears that indicators added to panel one will display the same significant digits as the instrument and indicators added to other panels will have two.
For example, in panel one of the ER2 all indicators have one significant digit displayed and in panel one of the ES all indicators have two significant digits.
Indicator values in panel two, three, etc. display two significant digits.
It is very confusing to analyze visually the results of indicators based on double word comparisons when the display is only one or two significant digits.
Please give consideration to removing this hard-coded default in the data box and allow the indicator to set the number of significant digits to two or more, even when displayed in panel one.
At the very least set the default to two in panel one just like the other panels for instruments such as ER2.
