[Programming Help] - text lable display for a study

i'd like to inquire if there is a way to display (not the actual value of the study) custom text like "Over SOLD" or "Over BOUGHT" based on the value of a study without displaying the actual study. Let me explain further for clarification...

For example, i use 1,000 trades/bar chart as my main chart.
I only want to display/use this chart for trades.
Let's assume I use RSI study to determine "over bought" or "over sold" condition.

If I want to know if other charts (2,000 trades/bar chart and 5,000 trades/bar chart) are in "over bought" or "over sold" condition without actually displaying the chart and the study. I just want to display the words/text "over bought" or "over sold" (based on the RSI value) for each of the charts without display/showing the actual charts and the study (RSI). (for the purpose of simplifying the screen/chartbook and just get the needed information in most simply way).

Hope this makes sense.

Is this possible?

Yes you can do things like this with the Color Bar Based on Alert Condition study. Refer specifically to this particular section here:

Studies it is based on can also be set to be hidden.
