Hi,

Manually I am drawing rectangles, horizontal lines, vertial lines, trend lines etc and they are saved when I save them as a chart or layout.

I want to draw them through program. Is it possible ? which functions to be used?

Thanks,

Satya

Hi,

This is not something you can currently do. Line study recognition is something we would like to do when we look at redeveloping the MetaStock formula language. I don't have any sort of time table for implementing this but it is definitely on our radar. As for actually using the formula language to draw lines, you can do this with formulas for some things. For example, pivot formulas, fibonacci formulas, simply plotting a fixed numerical value, etc.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. looking forward for this at the earliest. I want to draw horizontal lines at fixed values like at maximum prices, gap up prices etc in the indicator. I went through your formula guide but could not find which function to use for drawing the horizontal lines. Could you please guide or direct me to the correct formula to be used or snippet of codes?

If you want to plot a horizontal line at a value, say 1.2345 then use the code:

Code:

1.2345

To use other computed values, there are Highest(), Lowest(), HighestSince(), LowestSince(), ValueWhen() and more... you'll find them all well explained in the MS User Manual and in the free Equis Formula Primer (from the Files section of this forum).
