Supported UNICODE Symbols for chart labels

It looks like some basic unicode charecters are supported in Thinkscript but not supported in the chart label. For example, unicode¼ (U+00BC ) shows properly in the AddLabel thinkscript code and it also shows properly on the actual chart label. However, U+2193showes properly in the AddLabel thinkscript code but displays as and unknown character [] on the chart label. How can i get a list of supported Unicode charectors that THinkorSwim supports in labels? Does anyone have any insight into this?

Almost all of them work, you can copy and paste them from right here on this site. Almost all of the characters in the windows character map can also be used also.

@greco26 I am not aware of any list of usable unicodes but you should be able to use any of the standard Windows emojis accessible via the Windows logo key + ; or Windows logo key + . combinations... On a Mac they can be accessed via the Control + Command + Spacebar key combination...

@rad14733 thank you kindly for your response. I’ve been using the option key + the Unicode code to input the emojis into thinkscript but I will try the control + command + space bar and see if that makes a difference in how the chart label displays. Thx!

@BenTen hey , I'm sorry to bother you but there was a post on how to show special texts inside the labels of TOS... Do you know about that?
Like not just changing the label color but adding on shapes like squares hearts etc...
Like I already know this but there was a guy on here who knew the codes to put like hearts or other languages and shapes etc inside of the labels???
Driving me crazy I cant find it my friend

Played with Unicode symbols this afternoon...
AddLabel(yes, " 👍 👎 🆗 🆙 🆒 🚫💲 🔚 🔜 🔝 🔄", color.blue);
AddLabel(yes, " ⚠ ✂ 🡇 🡅 🡹 🡻 ★ ☆ ☑ ⬆ ⬇ ⏸ ✅ ↑ ↓ ⇧ ⇩ ✛ ➕ ❌ ❎ ♾ ♡ ♥ ", color.violet) ;
The first label lists the symbols that worked.
The 2nd label is the symbols that didn't. None of the arrows worked :(

Thank you @Joshua!

Works for me oddly, what method did you use to obtain the characters for the second row? Try to copy and paste your code specifically from your post here, and back into think script. The browser has a way of parsing and rendering out things that shouldn't be there.

I do see that you have arrows in your labels. I am jealous! I copied them directly from the Unicode Table: https://unicode-table.com/en/ directly into my AddLabel script, I didn't make any detours into any editors or browsers. Of the 713 arrows, I probably tested at least half of them and couldn't get any of them to work in the AddLabel script.

To troubleshoot, I now tried copying and pasting from a couple different browsers and editors, back into the script and they still don't show :(

Could you post your AddLabel script so I can see if I can get them to load??
To be able to have an arrow instead of writing out rising, trending, falling, etc... would save valuable label and watchlist real estate

Try these

▲▼←↑→↓↔↕

Everything I posted was copied and pasted from either the character map program that comes with windows by default, or right from the emoji selector here on this site. The code that you provided also worked fine on my end, so I don't think its a code issue. The characters that don't work for me are already squares in the editor. Are you on Mac possibly?
