Change arrows or dots?

What line of code would I need to look for in my indicators in order to change the dot to an arrow, or an arrow to a hollow dot, etc etc?

Also, how can I offset the dot or arrow to be farther away from the candle?

To change from dots to arrows look for:

SetIndexStyle(0,DRAW_ARROW);

SetIndexArrow(0,233);

SetIndexStyle(1,DRAW_ARROW);

SetIndexArrow(1,234);

and change the 233 and 234 to 159 (or for diamonds -- 117)

If you want the dots thicker --

Near top where it says ..

#property indicator_chart_window

#property indicator_color1 Lime

#property indicator_color2 Yellow

Insert 2 lines so it will look like this --

#property indicator_chart_window

#property indicator_buffers 2

#property indicator_color1 Lime

#property indicator_width1 1

#property indicator_color2 Yellow

#property indicator_width2 1

I am not sure about changing the position of the arrows/dots/diamonds though -- perhaps someone else can help --

All the best

Moving Dots & Arrows

Hi

Look for a line of code like this in theint start() area something like this for (counter=i ;counter<=i+9;counter++) and change the # to alter the arrow distance from the candle .

Also look for anything that refers to a rangeof some sort, often in an Alert line of code like this DownTunnel=true; UpTunnel=false; Tdown = High + Range*1.2;

and alter this # as well.

In this paticular indicator it has ARROWS & DOTS and the 1st code moves the Arrows and the 2nd code moves the Dots.

Good Luck

Reviving this to try to get an answer to:

Is there any way to get these wingding symols to "stack" based on the value of the variable/indicator it is displaying. Such as 2, 3, 4 or 5 arrows up or 1-5 arrows doen based on the value it read for the indicator?

How to fix arrows on charts

Hello there,

I am wondering if somebody could help me this.

The arrows on charts have been disappeared suddenly. It is

obvious that I have done something wrong....Instead of showing

arrows,the arrows on charts become only dot.

Would be very pleased if somebody could let me know how to show arrows properly.

Thank you in advance.

K.
