How to add full name to the Price chart title

The full name of the security can be retrieved in AFL using FullName() function.

In order to add such information to the built-in Price chart, we need to do the following:

  1. Click on the chart with right mouse button
  2. Choose Edit Formula from the context menu
  3. Modify the Title definition line, the built-in code contains:
    _N(Title StrFormat("{{NAME}} - {{INTERVAL}} {{DATE}} Open %g, Hi %g, Lo %g, Close %g (%.1f%%)"
                         
    OHLCSelectedValueROCC) ) ));

    We need to change it into:

    _N(Title StrFormat("{{NAME}} - " 
                          
    FullName() + 
                          
    " - {{INTERVAL}} {{DATE}} " +
                          
    "Open %g, Hi %g, Lo %g, Close %g (%.1f%%) Vol %.0f"
                          
    OHLCSelectedValueROCC) ), ) );
  4. To apply these changes choose Tools->Apply Indicator from the menu.

If we have Full name information imported into the database and visible in Symbol->Information window, the updated chart title will show it next to the ticker name.
