                                                   For crosshairs to stay on while drawing an object


2013-10-17 09:47:47

While drawing an object, the crosshairs or cursor lines disappear. Once the drawing is completed, the crosshairs re-appear. How can we keep the crosshairs
to stay on during drawing also. This will make it easy to align a drawing object (circle, etc) on sub-pane with dates in the price pane.

It is not possible to keep the crosshairs which creating or moving a drawing item.
You can however zoom on the chart (CONTROL+MOUSE WHEEL) to have a greater precision.

Fine. More than the precision, the idea was to align the drawing with similar drawing in other panes at the same X-scale point. Can we script a drawing item with this "cross-hairs stay-on" mode while drawing?

For this, you will have to create a script for every drawing item you are using.

Not worth the effort it looks like then! Do you think it makes sense to leave the crosshairs to be controlled by the chart settings only? If someone does not want the crosshairs while drawing, he can anyway disable it through chart settings. If someone wants it, he just enables it there. Do you think its worth implementing?

Best Answer
We will check this and see if it is worth implementing.
