QuickTip 94 | Drawing a vertical line on the last bar of the chart

QT94-gif

_Quicktip94 is a TradeStation EasyLanguage quicktip from markplex.com that demonstrates how to draw a vertical line on the last bar of the chart. The quicktip positions the line using a BNPoint. In the BNPoint creation, the bar number is adjusted by adding MaxBarsBack and subtracting 1. The color of the line is set to dark orange and showdate set to true. The default persist property for vertical lines is false, it is set to true so that it doesn’t disappear the on the tick following it being added. 

As each new bar is formed, the vertical line is moved to the new bar.

Compatibility

This Quick-tip was developed in TradeStation version 10.0. It does not apply to MultiCharts as it uses TradeStation drawing objects.
