Managing Signal Arrows
« on: February 02, 2017, 07:27:07 am »
Hello everyone,

I am wondering if it is possible to move the signal arrows further below the candles (in the case of the 'Buy' arrows) and further above the candles (in the case of 'Sell' arrows).

Also, is there a way I can enlarge, i.e. 'lengthen' the arrows? For example, I would be happy to have the arrows appear 2X or 3X in length.

Thanks very much to all.

Joe

How about reading the documentation? https://www.amibroker.com/guide/afl/plotshapes.html See 'offset' for example

Instead of PlotShapes you may use PlotTextSetFont with Wingdings and Webdings font or Unicode.
As for Unicode http://www.amibroker.com/devlog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/readme5940.html
Or you may use Gfx functions in order to draw custom shapes.

BTW this is not the official AmiBroker forum (just saying in case you thought so).
