Hidden Gems on the SharpCharts Annotation Bar (w/ video)


SharpCharts users can access several "hidden" annotation tools by hovering over icons that have small arrows in the right hand corner. First, create a SharpChart and click the annotate link to open the ChartNotes workbench. There is a row of annotation icons just above the chart on the left side. Some of these icons have small arrows that point to more icons just below. Simply hover over these icons to reveal the hidden gems. The example below shows four examples. First, the Parabola Tool can be found under the Trend Line icon. Second, the Triangle Tool can be found just under the Box Tool. Third, three other Fibonacci tools can be found under the Fibonacci Retracements Tool. And finally, the Percent Change Tool can be found just under the Auto Support-Resistance Tool.
