In the Available Main Price Graph Identifiers, can you please add something to identify the state of a Point and Figure Bar?

For Example:

If it is an up bar - PNFUP
If it is a down bar - PNFDOWN
To indicate the height of the bar - PNFSIZE


If there's another way to do these (I've tried every combination using H/L/C to no avail),please let me know. If not, please consider adding them (IRT has similar statements in its RTL language). Thanks.

This is not something that we would add.

You can identify whether a Point and Figure chart bar up or down by comparing the Open value to the Close value.

Is there a specific coding reason for that?

When comparing the open to the close and using color bar alerts, the colors change during the current bar every time the last price goes above/below the open of the bar.
