FibonacciIndicator.BaseLevelColor Property

Gets or sets a value defining the color of the lines representing the Fibonacci Indicator's base levels (0% or 100% depending on the indicator kind).

Public Property BaseLevelColor As Color

Property Value

Type Description
Color

A Color value which represents the color of the indicator's base levels lines.

Remarks

There are several kinds of Fibonacci Indicators (represented by the FibonacciIndicator class), which are determined by the FibonacciIndicatorKind property. For each kind there is the option to show or hide the so-called base levels (0% or 100% depending on the indicator kind). Despite the fact that they are not members of a Fibonacci sequence, it may be helpful to use them for a better trend presentation. To show or hide these levels, use the indicator's FibonacciIndicator.ShowLevel0 and FibonacciIndicator.ShowLevel100 properties.

And, you can use the BaseLevelColor property, defining the color of the lines representing these levels, to separate them from one another. Also, use the FibonacciIndicator.BaseLevelLineStyle and FibonacciIndicatorLabel.BaseLevelTextColor properties, to define the base level's line style and text color.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to create a Fibonacci Indicator of a certain kind (Arcs, Fans or Retracements), and add it to a financial series.

To do this, create an instance of the FibonacciIndicator class, and specify its FibonacciIndicator.Kind property. Then, add this indicator to the series collection of indicators, returned by the XYDiagram2DSeriesViewBase.Indicators property.
