How do I achieve this?

Nothing like that exist today for TOS, you would have to build one indicator, listing each ticker that is part of an ETF and you would have to repeat the same for every single ETF you could think of.

It would be only as good as, what you have built in to the indicator. if you have wrong data, you would end up displaying the wrong info.

Here is an example of this, I am displaying a yellow label that says "Future" if the ticker is a future, doesn't mean it would say that for all futures, but the once coded in it would.


Ruby:
def Future = if GetSymbolPart(1) == "/YM:XCBT"  or # Reserved for any...

Ruby:
def Future = if GetSymbolPart(1) == "/YM:XCBT"  or # Reserved for any further work, not used at the moment other than display the label.
                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/ES:XCME"  or
                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/NQ:XCME"  or

                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/EMD:XCME" or
                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/NKD:XCME" or
                GetSymbolPart(1) == “/DX:XICE"  or
                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/6E:XCME"  or 
                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/6A:XCME"  or

                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/GC:XCEC"  or

                GetSymbolPart(1) == "/OJ:XICE"  then yes else no;

AddLabel(if Future then yes else no, "Future", Color.YELLOW);
