Access to "Draw Outline Only ( Hollow)" setting via s_useTool

Support Request:

I am trying to draw a circle using s_UseTool. I want to use MARKER_POINT and access the "Draw Outline Only" option like is available on the tool config settings.

I have read the documentation, searched the support board and otherwise attempted to figure out how to access this setting with s_UseTool and it appears it is not available without configuring

I want to draw a hollow circle of size X, with the center at ( BarIndex, Price ). I May need to draw multiple circles at the same BarIndex and I can't know ahead of time how many so this prevents me from using a Subgraph[] with DRAWSTYLE_CIRCLE_HOLLOW.

Can you please advise if this is possible or point me to other relevant documentation that I may have overlooked?

thanks,

This is not supported. Other than by using Subgraphs.

But there is the Marker tool which has different Styles. But not a hollow circle.

We will see if we can support this though.

I was able to get what i needed by drawing the marker with "tool.UseToolConfigNum" set to a tool config that has the "Draw Outline Only (Hollow)" parameter checked. Then I just re-drew the same drawing without "tool.UseToolConfigNum" set and i was able to adjust the circle to the size I wanted.

If it was supported to just access that "Draw Outline Only" setting within s_UseTool it would be cleaner.

thanks,

OK we did not even recognize that particular option for the Marker tool. We apologize for that.

Yes we will add Draw Outline Only to s_UseTool.

If you are going to do that could you add the option for Transparent Fill also?

No, this is not reasonably possible.
