Hi,

Please correct me the problem having.
I added the "text for display for study" on my chart to display the value in the spreadsheet after picked the study and subgraph (o column sg5 is the text message of "Buy") but it showing "0.00" on chart.
If I change the o column sg5 to numbers then it display correctly with number.
Does it mean the sierra chart no allow display text from spreadsheet?

Yes, the Text Display For Study study only displays numbers. Not text.

You can do something like this by using the Text Draw Style:

I also have a need to use the "Text Display For Study" to display Text at the top of the chart. This would be very helpful to see the signals of a chart quickly,at a glance.Please consider this as possible enhancement if it is not too difficult. TIA

You mean text from a spreadsheet?. This is not supported . We do not foresee this. It is not reasonably possible.

Yes, Text from a spreadsheet. However, it would be just some thing that would be nice to have, I can use a numeric code instead. I just wanted to see if was an easy fix. Since it is difficult, I can live with out it with no problems. TY
