Hello,

 I'am looking for an adapt ZigZag showing the cumulative volume for each ZigZag, for expample like this.

 Zigzag with Volume 

 Do you have any ideas to build up a Zigzag with volume?

 Greetings

I want to have one, but I don't know how to get it done

So far I got the volume for each ZigZag but my TextObject for the volume is not working

 

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
// Creating and initializing an object to display the volume 
// x: Time of bar
// y: Price of bar
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void CreateText(datetime x,double y,string text)
  { 
//--- generate a name for a new edit object
   string name="Text_"+(string)x+"_"+(string)y;
//--- create a new edit object
   if(!ObjectCreate(0,name,OBJ_LABEL,0,0,0))
     {
      Print("Cannot create: '",name,"'");
      return;
     }
//--- set coordinates etc.
   ObjectSetString(0,name,OBJPROP_FONT,"Arial");
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_FONTSIZE,10);
   ObjectSetString(0,name,OBJPROP_TEXT,string(text));
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_SELECTABLE,false);
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_COLOR,YellowGreen);
   ObjectMove(0,name,0,x,y);
  }

The result is not what I expected:

 

I want to place the cumulated volume over/under each bar, but my binding for the object :  ObjectMove(0,name,0,x,y); is not working so far...

I made some tests with arrow objects. That works fine:

int OnInit()
  {
   string name="Text";
//--- create a new edit object
   if(!ObjectCreate(0,name,OBJ_ARROW_THUMB_DOWN,0,D'29.03.2012 20:00',1.32715))
     {
      Print("Cannot create: '",name,"'");
      return(-1);
     }
//--- settings
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_COLOR,YellowGreen);
   return(0);
  }

 

but with a text object I got the following result:

int OnInit()
  {
  
//--- generate a name for a new edit object
   string name="Text";
//--- create a new edit object
   if(!ObjectCreate(0,name,OBJ_LABEL,0,D'29.03.2012 20:00',1.32715))
     {
      Print("Cannot create: '",name,"'");
      return(-1);
     }
//--- settings
   ObjectSetString(0,name,OBJPROP_FONT,"Arial");
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_FONTSIZE,10);
   ObjectSetString(0,name,OBJPROP_TEXT,string("100"));
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_SELECTABLE,false);
   ObjectSetInteger(0,name,OBJPROP_COLOR,YellowGreen);
   return(0);
  }
  

 

Is there anyone who knows how to place text objects with a datetime/price base, as it works with arrow objects?

Thanks

Mike

You should use OBJ_TEXT

So, any success with this indicator? I'm using similar system with zigzags, checking time and price retracements. Might add volume to the mix
