I have a added a DottedChartStyle, that plots dots on the price. The user can choose the weight of the dot and the price[O,H,L,C] on which to plot the dot. How shall we proceed to add this to the Community.ChartStyles?

Thank you for the contribution. The "Dotted" chart style has been integrated with the Community.ChartStyles project. The project's source code can be downloaded from its updated Wealth-Lab Wiki page, while the Extension downloads on our web site will have to wait for a required fix.

RA81,dansmo, eugene
Thank u guys for sharing ur knowledge, end of lastyear i switched from WL4 to WLP5, being new to c# and .net in general, i was and still is on a steep learning curve. I have learned and shamelessly borrowed( really! u can have it back once i am done with it :) ) a lot of techniques/code etc. Hopefully i might be able to contribute in future.

Constant Volume Bar Chart
Is the system capable to plot contract base chart rather than time base chart?

Sure, see the Trending ChartStyles (Point & Figure, Renko, Kagi, and Line Break) for examples.

hi Eugene hanks for adding heikin ashi to chart styles. i had a question. the heikin ashi chart looks like the ohlc chart but in the code that you had givenme before it was like candlestick which was easier to interpret. how can i change the look of it. thanks.

The HA chart style is programmed to display as bars, it's not possible to change its look w/o a coding effort.

oh I had asked as whereever i read about heikin ashi it was interpreted based on the type of candle that had formed. Is there any minor change i can do as i dont think i can tell the strength of the red bars based on this chart or if the trend is changing.

Thanks for bringing my attention to it. Heiken Ashi colors will be fixed and they will be rendered as candles in the upcoming update.

Hi Eugene thanks for updating the Heikin ashi. Have a question when i try to see a chart and stream it the heikin ashi candle is not forming but the candle stick option creates a candle on daily chart. Is that posssible in Heikin ashi and how do I do it? Thanks.

Let's say Streaming is not supported by Heikin Ashi chart style and we don't have any plans to investigate it.
