thinkscript included: sdi_ivp revision 1.2 - choose your color

i am thrilled that tastytrade has incorporated my sdi_ivp chart label into their on-air charting. it is wonderful to give back to this community. however, i am seeing that not everyone is thrilled with my choice of plum for the color of the label (too close to yahoo-logo color?) the 1.2 revision enables you to choose your own color without having to edit the code.

here's how the color chooser works:

goto edit studies by clicking on the beaker icon on the top bar of the chart and rightclick on the sdi_ivp study. this gives:

click on the color box and you get the color chooser drop down:
 
click on one of the 9 standard colors then click ok/ok. when i click on dark blue the label color changes:
 

 
 
or click on the select button in the color chooser to choose a color from a broad palette of colors or input the explicit rgb values if you know them:


 
 
as always i maintain the revised source code in the original post for sdi_ivp
