Is it possible to display only the countdown timer, and none of the text? 

I know what it is for, do not seen explanation.

However, when I tile vertically, on my laptop, these sorts of indicators do not have sufficient space to show the number changing because too wide.

Can I ask if it is possible to have a configurable alert in that it would have a parameter called SoundAlertSecondsLeft which would accept a number in seconds that would trigger an alert wav file? Thus instead of an alert at 5 seconds to close, this timeframe would be configurable. This is so that I am reminded to review the charts with say 45 seconds to go and I can place trades just slightly before the candle close. This works well with CCI indicators since the direction of the indicator changes little in the last few seconds during quiet times
