Chart clutter - hide indicator value-annotation and label-annotation

On the right-hand side of the indicator pane there are value labels for whatever is plotted. A small colored box with the last value for the indicator.

With a four indicator overlay in the same pane, this gets pretty busy looking and can hide the y-axis range labels. I've looked around in QuickRef to see if this annotation can be turned off but do not see any obvious switches.

Same goes for the indicator labels on the left-hand side of the pane. I've tried the DataSeries.Description method with empty quotes, but this still plots a numbered annotation. For example,

rsi1 plots with a blank label annotation but rsi2 plots with a " _1 " annotation.

I'm using PlotSeries to display the computed DataSeries, for example,

Any ideas for removing this annotation are appreciated. Thanks.

This is by design, removing the DataSeries annotation plot isn't supported.

Eugene,

Thanks.

Might want to give the user the option to turn off the right hand colored box values.. If an indicator value level is important, I usually just draw a line for visual reference, such as the 30-70 levels in rsi. I'd much rather see the y-axis numbered labels and the overall trend of the indicator than the colored boxes of a single point.

As far as the indicator labels are concerned, I stumbled across an icon at the top of the chart which allows the indicator labels on the left to be turned off. As you pointed out, I guess this cannot be done from within user-available WLP script, although the icon implies the script exists somewhere..

Sorry, you're right about the annotation text -- what I actually was talking about is the colorful overlay plot on the right side of the chart.

Click the button in the Charting function toolbar that disables all the plot labels for the chart.

Tip: If you hold Alt while clicking that button, it will do it for all the charts.
