Program 35 (GlobalVariable.dll) | Transfer levels from one chart to another

Program 35 (GlobalVariable.dll version) use the GlobalVariable DLL to transfer horizontal line levels from one chart to another (or several others). If a symbol is changed the indicators do not need to be turned off and applied in a specific order like they do with the ADE version. Program 35 (GlobalVariable.dll version) consists of two programs:  _Program35 GV Sender and _Program35 GV Receiver. They allow a user to set levels on one chart by moving horizontal lines with a mouse and for those levels to be, almost, instantaneously available on a second chart. The programs, developed for TradeStation 9.1  and up and for them to work the GlobalVariable.dll must be installed. You can find out how to do this here: https://community.tradestation.com/Discussions/Topic.aspx?Topic_ID=113573

Unlike the ADE version of program 35, this version does not require that the sending and receiving programs are applied in any specific order. This is helpful, if you change chart symbols frequently and you do not want to keep reapplying the programs.

Lines are drawn at the same levels as on the sending chart on the receiving chart and the text values that show the price levels of the lines are drawn towards the right of the chart. 

If a line is moved on the sending chart, the corresponding line is also moved on the receiving chart (see the video below for a demonstration).

The idea behind the program is that a user could determine levels or zones on the sending chart using whatever methodology he prefers, and that those same levels would become automatically available on the receiving chart.

How the program works

When the sending chart initializes the sending program calculates the highest and lowest prices visible in the current window.  It divides the difference of these two values by the user input NumSR and then draws lines at the lowest value plus multiples of this calculated value to draw NumSR  evenly spaced throughout the window. The values of the lines are drawn on the right of the lines.

The horizontal lines are colored based on the user inputs: Color1, Color2, Color3, Color4, Color5, Color6, Color7, Color8, Color9, and Color10. The text pertaining to a particular lines is drawn in the same color as the line.

The program use the new TradeStation drawing objects. On the sending charts the program knows when a particular drawing object is clicked and dragged. When this event occurs the data stored in the global variable is updated.  The receiving program uses the TradeStation timer to check for updates to the line levels or the colors of the lines stored in the global variable. When it detects a change it moves a line or changes its color as appropriate. The data is stored in the global variable as named integers or named doubles.

The receiving program can be applied to more that one ‘receiving’ chart.
