Is it possible to draw stuff through the scripts from the script editor. I am unable to find any API's to do so.

Or should I use Create Functions to accomplish any plotting?

Which script editor are you referring to?

Best Answer
Yes it is possible.

Here is an example:

Chart chart = Charts.GetSelectedChart();
PaneObject pane = chart.Panes[0].CreatePaneObject("Pane");
int endIndex = chart.ChartData.EndIndex;
double value = chart.ChartData.GetTimeSeries("close")[endIndex];

ArrowObj arrow = pane.DrawArrow("Arrow1", endIndex+1, value, endIndex+1, value);
arrow.Line.Color = Color.Blue;

Great! So where do I find documentation for this drawing objects? I couldn't find it by clicking on the Help below the editor.

After you click on "pane.", a list of available functions is displayed in a list box (Help will be updated very soon)
