    Hi Angus,

    Your post should be in the Optuma Development Forum, not this Scripting Forum if you are Pascal programming.

    I get around that problem by having a property I call “ShowToolDescription” which is a Boolean toggle that appears in my Properties Panel.  Then I have a “ShowMessage” that follows an “If ShowToolDescription.variable = True then”. The ShowMessage has a multi-line description of the tool. Here’s what the code looks like:

    The default setting for ShowToolDescription is False (0) and it is reset to False after the the ShowMessage is cleared.

    Cheers

    Hi Mathew,

    Looks like there’s a lot of support layers and sub-layers or folders.

    However, I would not like to see the labelling of Layers/Sub-layers preconfigured or automatically created as suggested by Scott, unless that was a user definable option. Asa default it would be an annoyance for the way I create Layers and and wish to use Sub-layers.

    Cheers

    Hi Alexander,

    Look like you need to hit Function Key 11 a couple of times. F11 opens you page full screen.

    Cheers

    Hi Darren,

    The short answer is: yes.

    I have a watchlist with twenty columns, each with a different script, and my “template” workbook normally has only one page with stocks, futures and forex pairs on it which I always load with the Daily timeframe. When I ran into this issue I cloned the first page, deleted all the codes then added only Oanda forex pairs to the cloned page and then went looking for intra-day timeframes, but couldn’t find them☹

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    A “Call Out” tool would be a great feature.

    It would be even better it the text within it could be formatted, ie bold, italics, coloured etc on a word by word basis.

    Cheers

    Amanda and James,

    You can move items from one Layer to another by clicking and dragging the item you wish to move, provided the Layer you are dragging from and to are not locked.

    I’d also note that your can reorder Layers by clicking and dragging, again provided they are not locked.

    Cheers

    Michael,

    Your request has nothing to do with the topic of this thread. When raising a new topic, please start a new thread.

    As to you specific request, the decimal places of the price shown on the HL is determined by the setting of the decimal places for the Price Scale. It will be one place more than that of the Price Scale. You can change the location of the HL Price through the HL Properties.

    Cheers

    I’ll throw my hat in the ring for that functionality too.

    Hi Thomas,

    Take a look at this Knowledge Base article Multiple Output Plots, it has a list of some of the colours available for plots and how to access the list in the Script Manager.

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    I didn’t realise my question was such a hard one to respond to☹

    With historical charts (and Bitcoin XBTUSD which trades 24/7) it seems to me illogical that the week ends on Friday and starts on Saturday, when historically trading for the week ended on Saturday. Is there a way the end/start of the weekly bars can be set by the user?

    Cheers

    Hi Thomas,

    Try:

    Var4 = IF(Var3 >= 0.3, 1, IF(Var3 >= -0.3,  -1, 0));

    Cheers

    Hi Francesco,

    I’ve not done it, but the approach I’d take is to create a CSV file with five columns, the first with the date, then in each row the P/L figure for that day in the four columns for that date’s row, so the data set in csv format would look like:

    21-09-2020, 1051,1051,1051,1051
    22-9-2020,1065,1065,1065,1065
    23-9-2020,750,750,750,750
    24-9-2020, 820,820,820,820
    25-9-2020, 83,835,835,835

    Bad day on the 23rd☹

    If you import that data into Optuma it can be charted as a line chart (or candles or bars, but then they’ll end up as an “unconnected” stepped line).

    The columns are essentially in the form Date, Open, High, Low, Close which is acceptable to Optuma, so then you can apply any of Optuma’s tools to the resulting chart.

    Cheers

    Trevor

    Hi Francesco,

    Take a look at Optuma Knowledge Base article Formatting and Importing Text (.csv) Files.

    The starting point for your transfer from Excel to Optuma is to create a CSV file from your data in Excel. Just make sure you put have your data in the right column format.

    Cheers

    Trevor
