View Full Version : Hide chart axis

I think it would be nice if I could have the option to hide the chart axes. Maybe a way to remove the top row in charts that lists the indicators being used too. Thanks.
I have made several indicators that display things in a manner similar to tradestation's radarscreen. I am trying to make the chart windows as small as possible so I can layer my indicators because I can't make multi-time framed indicators yet.

How would you then know which values are displayed?

Will be available by fall time frame.

Basically I am just using the chart window as a vehicle to show my displays. I think a picture will explain it better than words. In the attached picture you can see that I am completely negating the chart itself and have custom plotted my own grid over it and the axes are of no use to me.

I see. We'll add it to the list of future considerations.

Just curious, if you need grid display of data, why not use the Market Analyzer?

Because, like in my other suggestion, I can't do indicator on indicator comparisons in Market Analyzer yet. I don't feel like writing a separate indicator for every column I want to use.
I also can't add multiple instances of the same instrument for use on multiple time frames either. For example, lets say I have four moving averages per time period I am watching and I want to determine the relation of the MAs of one time period against another time period's. It is hard to comprehend when everything is on just one long row. If there were multiple rows each representing a different time period but of the same instrument I could just do a quick up-down scan on 4 columns and quickly find what I want.

I would like to do basically same thing: hide labels on y-axis, including current price (to screen many graphs on same screen) and show it when needed (to see details of a particular graph). Needless to say, I should be able to do that without recompiling indicators. Any progress on this matter since then?
Can I also disable the Lock window caption button from showing? I don't use it, and it takes out space in window title.
I also want to get rid of an empty trailing space on the left of the graph (about 5mm). Sadly, control of the left edge is missing, although padding on the right edge can be varied.
In general, there's too little control over chart display settings (comparing, say, to trader workstation). Do consider this in the next versions of NT.
