Tutorial 99 | Positioning text using XYPoint

Showing text a specific location on a chart

Welcome to Markplex tutorial 99 in this collection of tutorials designed to help you learn TradeStation EasyLanguage programming skills. Please join our email list if you have not already done so and we will let you know when we release new tutorials or programs.

This tutorial applies to TradeStation (but not MultiCharts).

I was asked to create a tutorial that showed how to display text at a specific position on the chart based on the x-y coordinates of a window. You should be able to see what I mean in the following two images, both of the same chart, but sized differently:
