Simple one, how to get user input colors for DrawText?
I've got everything with my indi working nicely. Thanks to one of the nice users here they guided me on how to toggle between drawing objects on the price chart, and on the indicator chart. i've got a user-selectable font size for my drawtext, but i'd also like a user-selectable color for it, so that it will show up nicely on dark, or light colored backgrounds.
Here's my line of code, which works fine. It prints the price of the lowest low minus one tick, below the lowest low of the last x bars (since crossBelow0BarsAgo, something figured out elsewhere) on the price chart.
DrawText("ShortText",false,(Low[LowestBar(Low, crossBelow0BarsAgo)]-TickSize).ToString(), LowestBar(Low, crossBelow0BarsAgo), Low[LowestBar(Low, crossBelow0BarsAgo)]-3*TickSize,0, Color.Orange, new Font("Arial Bold", fontSize), StringAlignment.Center, Color.Transparent, Color.Transparent, 0 );
I'd just like to have the Color.Orange something that can be changed based on the inputs of the indicator, and i'm not too sure how to do that. I poked around the forum a bit, but couldn't find anything on it.
Hopefully it's an easy question, i'm still learning how to program.
Thanks so much!
