is there a way to set semi-transparent color indicator's line?


i used this but none of these  work:

......

SetIndexStyle(1, DRAW_HISTOGRAM , STYLE_SOLID, 1,  StringToColor("0, 0,127,0")  );

SetIndexStyle(1, DRAW_HISTOGRAM , STYLE_SOLID, 1,  0x00FF1234  );

SetIndexStyle(1, DRAW_HISTOGRAM , STYLE_SOLID, 1,  ColorToARGB(clrRed, 0x55)  );

SetIndexStyle(1, DRAW_HISTOGRAM , STYLE_SOLID, 1,  ColorToARGB(clrRed, 0.55)  );

  1. MT4 has only RGB not ARGB.
    Color Type - Integer Types - Data Types - Language Basics - MQL4 Reference
    The first byte is ignored, the remaining 3 bytes contain the RGB-components.
    So of course they don't work. Can't be done.
  2. StringToColor Only takes one argument of RGB. Invalid call.
    String representation of a color of "R,G,B" type or name of one of predefined Web-colors.
  3. ColorToARGB Came from MT5 but alpha is ignored per #1.

Yes you can but not using indicator's buffer.

No, they will get the value of TRANSPARENT COLOR, but the value itself, is not obtained by BUFFER as transparent.
