Sizing & Moving Labels

DAB

New member
Hello,

I am trying to find a script that allows me to size a label..extend width, perhaps? I know that I can remove any inner text. What if I wanted to remove the inner text of a label and have just a label defined by size?

Hmmm....

Thanks,

DAB

@DAB The TOS platform does not have a 'script' or any other customizing techniques to specify the 'size of a label' or to move labels to other places on the chart.
The work-around most seen used by posters is using the addition/subtraction of blank spaces to position labels that run along the top of a chart so it doesn't overlap crucial chart data.

In answer to your question: yes, you can remove text and adjust the size of your label with blank spaces but no, there is no script syntax available to code the size of a label. Also, the ToS platform does not allow us to specify placement of labels. Labels are always placed in the upper-left hand corner of the chart.

Is there a way to move a custom code Label that display on my Chart from the Left to the Right so that the code will display on the right side?


CURRENT CODE IN PLACE
input limit = 0.09;
def price = close(priceType = PriceType.LAST);
AddLabel(yes, Concat("PRICE: ", price), if price > price[1] then Color.LIGHT_GREEN else if price < price[1] then Color.DOWNTICK else Color.LIGHT_GRAY);
