How to draw buy/sell signal labels on chart when run backtesting?

I tried the DrawText.cs sample shipped with RE, however it doesn't seem to have any effect on the symbol chart. Is there a way to draw labels while running the simulation?

Thanks!

How are you opening the chart?  You have to open the chart from the system results (you can do this by double-clicking a trade in the trade list or on a symbol in the symbol results tab) in order to see indicators and chart objects from a simulation run.

Also, the DrawText sample only draws text on the chart for one day each year (by default February 14th), and only if that was an active trading day.  So you might not be looking at the right part of the chart.

Here's what it looks like:

That solved my issue! I was using the chart opened from symbol list. Once I opened the chart from trade list it works fine!

Thank you Daniel!
