I have a few comments that I've added to chart and they appear at the top left corner. They overwrite 3 lines that are already there and I need to move my comments down but I can't find out how to do it.

Add multiple "\n" at the start of your comment

Add multiple "\n" at the start of your comment

Thank you for the quick response Mladen, but I've tried that and it overwrites the 3 lines with blanks.

If you already have comments on chart (not objects, comments) you can do the following :

  • get the content of the comment (using ChartGetString(0,CHART_COMMENT)) into a string and patch it with the rest of the comment you want to add and output it as a comment again
    • the issue is that you can end up with adding your part multiple times - you need to have some sort of a control
  • use objects instead of using comments (labels or text type objects are usually used for that or, if you want to make it perfect use canvas)
    • needless to say that you shall have to do much more coding for this option
