Watchlist - Custom Colours & Labels
Custom colours and labels can be set up to display on your watchlist script columns. Here’s a quick video example:
It’s also possible to change the label text based on your preferences. If you have a custom ranking system between 1 and 3, by default the Watchlist column will return one of those 3 values, however with custom labels you can set up more meaningful labels (and colours) to display in the Watchlist:
In the above example custom labels have been set up for the last column where:
- 1 = Bearish
- 2 = Hold
- 3 = Bullish.
To set up custom labels, right click on the column header (it must be a script column) and expand the Custom Labels section.
Click on the + to setup the first label.
The conditions for the label can be set based on the following options:
- > Greater Than
- < Less Than
- >= Greater Than or Equal To
- <= Less Than or Equal To
- == Equal To
In the event a value meets two condition labels, it will use which ever is highest in the list. You can change the order of a condition by the far right drag / drop icon.
You can also select a colour for the label to display in.
With the label there are a few options. You can enter in a plain text label, display the underlying original value (so you’re just adding a colour rule), or you can do both.
To show the underlying value ensure the Label field includes [Value].
The [Value] label will take into account any formatting made to the column (for example if the column was changed to a percentage).
