About graphical objects

 You can plot various graphical elements on the chart, which are located on the  Drawing toolbar. 

All graphical objects have a peculiarity - they maintain the style that was used most recently. For example, if you draw a red dashed line with a thickness of 3, then the next time you choose to draw a line, it will be drawn with precisely the same settings.

All graphical objects have their own editing settings. You can save them to a template for later use.

The Tiger.Trade terminal has an API that lets you program your own graphical objects.

The object manager can be opened by:

  • Double-clicking on the object with the left mouse button

  • Right-clicking in the chart area and selecting the line Object manager.

The left part of the window shows the areas of charts and a list of graphical objects in them, as well as a button to delete selected graphical objects from the list.

The right side of the window shows the properties of the selected graphical object that can be edited.
To save the object settings as a template, click on the icon.

In the pop-up window, enter a name for the template and click the button OK. When adding a new object from the list of templates, you can now select the saved one, except for the Default template.
