Hide plot show bubble

New member
I am attempting to add a function to a thinkscript in which I can hide plots yet maintain the bubble that they print on the chart axis and hitting a wall; any help would be appreciated. As an example to work off of, here is TOS native "DailyHighLow". If attempting to use the SetHiding function on a plot, it will hide the chart bubble as well.

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
input length = 1;
input displace = -1;
input showOnlyLastPeriod = no;

plot DailyHigh;
plot DailyLow;
if showOnlyLastPeriod and !IsNaN(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-1]) {
DailyHigh = Double.NaN;
DailyLow = Double.NaN;
} else {
DailyHigh = Highest(high(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
DailyLow = Lowest(low(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
}

DailyHigh.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyHigh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DailyLow.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyLow.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

Regrettably, once you hide the plot, the TOS right axis bubble will disappear. However, you can create your own bubble adjacent to the right axis in the expansion that might work for you.

Here is the code added to the script to do this:

Code:
input hideplot = yes;
input bubble   = yes;
DailyHigh.SetHiding(hideplot);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), DailyHigh, DailyHigh, DailyHigh.TakeValueColor());
DailyLow.SetHiding(hideplot);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), DailyLow, DailyLow, DailyLow.TakeValueColor(), no);

plot DailyHigh;
plot DailyLow;
if showOnlyLastPeriod and !IsNaN(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-1]) {
    DailyHigh = Double.NaN;
    DailyLow = Double.NaN;
} else {
    DailyHigh = Highest(high(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
    DailyLow = Lowest(low(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
}

input hideplot = yes;
input bubble   = yes;
DailyHigh.SetHiding(hideplot);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), DailyHigh, DailyHigh, DailyHigh.TakeValueColor());
DailyLow.SetHiding(hideplot);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), DailyLow, DailyLow, DailyLow.TakeValueColor(), no);

DailyHigh.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyHigh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DailyLow.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyLow.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

here is another way, plot something small, that generates the bubble.
i used a point, at the highest / lowest prices, on last day.


Code:
# noplot_bubble

#https://usethinkscript.com/threads/hide-plot-show-bubble.17416/#post-135880
#Hide plot show bubble

def na = Double.NaN;
def currentday = (getday() == getlastday());

# DailyHighLow
# TD Ameritrade IP Company, Inc. (c) 2011-2023
input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
input length = 1;
#input displace = -1;
input showOnlyLastPeriod = no;

# data
#def DailyHigh = Highest(high(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
#def DailyLow = Lowest(low(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
def DailyHigh = Highest(high(period = aggregationPeriod)[0], length);
def DailyLow = Lowest(low(period = aggregationPeriod)[0], length);

# plot lines
plot zDailyHigh;
plot zDailyLow;
if showOnlyLastPeriod and !IsNaN(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-1]) {
    zDailyHigh = Double.NaN;
    zDailyLow = Double.NaN;
} else {
    zDailyHigh = DailyHigh;
    zDailyLow = Dailylow;
}

input hideplot = yes;
input bubble   = no;
zDailyHigh.SetHiding(hideplot);
zDailyLow.SetHiding(hideplot);
zDailyHigh.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
zDailyHigh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
zDailyLow.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
zDailyLow.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

def hix = if isnan(close) then hix[1] else dailyhigh;
def lox = if isnan(close) then lox[1] else dailylow;

#AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), zDailyHigh[0], zDailyHigh[0], zDailyHigh.TakeValueColor(),yes);
#AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), DailyLow[0], DailyLow[0], zDailyLow.TakeValueColor(), no);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), hix, hix, zDailyHigh.TakeValueColor(),yes);
AddChartBubble(bubble and BarNumber() == HighestAll(BarNumber()), lox, lox, zDailyLow.TakeValueColor(), no);


# plot a dot, to cause price bubble to appear
plot zhibub = if hideplot and currentday and high == dailyhigh then high else na;
plot zlobub = if hideplot and currentday and low == dailylow then low else na;
zhibub.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.points);
zhibub.SetDefaultColor(Color.yellow);
zhibub.setlineweight(1);
#zhibub.hidebubble();
zlobub.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.points);
zlobub.SetDefaultColor(Color.yellow);
zlobub.setlineweight(1);
